District Accepts Staff Retirements
Departing Caldwell-West Caldwell staff members will be recognized at June 4 BOE meeting.
A high school English teacher and a social studies teacher who each spent nearly 40 years with Caldwell-West Caldwell Schools are among the staff members retiring from the district at the end of June.
James Caldwell High School English teacher Nicholas Brown served the district for 38 years, and social studies teacher Angelo Maglio was hired just a year before Brown.
Other retirements accepted by the Board of Education at Monday's regular meeting include, high school social studies teacher Thomas Adams, Grover Cleveland Middle School Spanish teacher Betsy Rieder, Jefferson School elementary teacher Patricia Lomonaco and English as a Second Language (ESL) and elementary teacher Kathleen Kobylarz, who works at both the high school and Washington Elementary School.
The district will also say goodbye to two social workers in the special education department, Joann Calice and Pasquale Spitaletta, and Maryanne Melnyk, supervisor of guidance.
Superintendent of Schools Daniel Gerardi said there are "a lot of years represented in these retirees."
Gerardi himself will leave the district at the end of June after 27 years. He will be joined in retirement by Business Administrator and Board Secretary Ronald Skopak, who has worked for the district for more than 40 years.
The retirees will be recognized at the Monday, June 4 Board of Education meeting at Harrison School. The meeting starts at 7:30 p.m.
