School board president to resign

Citing a “career opportunity that will take me out of New Jersey,” Barrington Board of Education President Andrew Wood confirmed at Monday’s school board meeting that he would formally submit his resignation from the board this week.

Avon School“It has been a pleasure to serve,” Wood said during the meeting after Superintendent Anthony Arcodia took a moment near the end to thank Wood for his efforts on the board.

Wood, who some residents accused of a conflict of interest during the proceedings surrounding former Woodland School Principal Mort Argoe, is one of five candidates who submitted paperwork to be listed among the candidates for the November school board election.

In other actions at Monday’s meeting, the board unanimously renewed the contract for Arcodia through June 30, 2015, approved substitutes and athletic coaches and OK’d a new mathematics pilot program for grades 6-8.

The board also heard from the superintendent about an ongoing analysis of the school’s parent/student handbook, including a “thorough review” of the code of conduct and the state’s harassment, intimidation and bullying (HIB) rules.


As noted previously on the Bulletin, the author of this blog, Mark Correa, is running for a position on the school board this fall. As always, I invite any of the other candidates to contact me if they would like to discuss any issues on this blog or use it to state their positions.
