Brick BOE to Choose New Superintendent Tonight
Meeting follows rounds of interviews
The Brick Township Board of Education has scheduled a special meeting Tuesday night where board members will appoint the district's new superintendent.
The appointment follows rounds of interviews conducted by board members over the last few weeks. Those interviews, consistent with state laws, were conducted in private.
Candidates for the position had until May 1 to apply for the job of leading Brick's school system, one of the state's largest suburban districts in the state with just under 10,000 students.
Assuming a superintendent is appointed at the meeting Tuesday, he or she may be able to begin in Brick by Aug. 1, after a customary 60 days notice is given to the candidate's former district, officials have said.
Current Superintendent Walter Hrycenko's contract was not renewed last year by board members. He will revert to the position of assistant superintendent, the last position in which he holds tenure, when the new schools chief takes the helm. The current assistant superintendent, Patricia Lorusso, will be bumped to the position of principal, her last tenured position.
The meeting is set for Tuesday at 7 p.m. at Brick Township High School.
