District Announcements
BOE trustee resigns; Board seeks to fill vacancy
Oct. 5, 2015
At the Glen Rock Board of Education meeting on Oct. 5, trustee Robin Rubinstein announced her resignation from the board through a prepared statement read by fellow trustee Randi Blumberg. The resignation was subsequently accepted by the BOE.
“Robin has been a valuable and dedicated member of our board. Her ability to ask the important questions and make the hard decisions while focusing on what is most important to a school district -  the students - will be missed by all,” said McNabola, who cited personal reasons for Rubinstein’s departure.
State regulations require that the BOE appoint a trustee to replace Rubinstein. That individual would serve until the BOE reorganization meeting in January of 2017, unless he or she chose to run for either what would then be a one-year unexpired term or a full three-year term. 
Qualifications for board membership include:
  • Citizen of the United States
  • At least 18 years of age
  • Ability to read and write
  • Resident of Glen Rock for a minimum of one year
  • Individual is not disqualified as a voter pursuant to R.S. 19:4-1
  • Individual is a registered voter in the district
Anyone interested in being considered for the appointment should submit a letter of interest and resume to: Michael Rinderknecht, Business Administrator and Board Secretary, Glen Rock Board of Education, 620 Harristown Road, Glen Rock, NJ 07452 no later than Tuesday, Oct. 20, 2015 at 4 p.m. The BOE plans to interview all qualified candidates the week of November 9.
