HOBOKEN -- Hoboken Board of Education Trustee Irene Sobolov resigned from her seat on the board on Sept. 13.

She has served on the Board of Education for the past nine years and was reelected to her position during this past municipal election in November.

According to her resignation letter sent to Board President Thomas Kluepfel, she has decided to resign due to "increased family and personal commitments" that now require her full attention.

"In my nine year tenure on the board, I have always strived to commit 100 percent focus to my board service and unfortunately, that is no longer possible," states the letter. "Although I regret having to vacate my position, I believe it is what is best for my family and the Hoboken BOE to make room for someone with more time to devote to the position. "

She said she initially ran for the board to work for accountability and transparency in the district, equity among all the district schools, and increased opportunities for all the district students.

"I think what I am most proud of is ensuring that all the district elementary schools are treated equally and having expanded amazing new academic, enrichment and travel opportunities to all student," states the letter. "I am so honored to have been part of the team to move the district ever forward."

She said that although she can no longer commit to the board, she will continue to support the district.
