WEEHAWKEN– According to a press release from the Mount Olive Board of Education, Dr. Robert Zywicki, superintendent of the Weehawken school district, is leaving Weehawken to become their superintendent in October.
“I am thrilled to join the dynamic team of educators, parents, and students in Mount Olive,” said Dr. Zywicki in a press release. “I will work to continue the tremendous progress that has taken place under Dr. Reynolds and ensure a path of innovation going forward.”
He has been the superintendent of Weehawken for the past three years.
During that time he implemented several initiatives, including the infusion of blended learning strategies, establishing a comprehensive Response to Intervention program, and adoption of the AP Capstone Diploma Program
Zywicki also spearheaded a successful $16,000,000 voter referendum that resulted in state of the art security upgrades at all Weehawken schools. And in 2017, Weehawken was one of only three districts in New Jersey to have each of its schools certified as Future Ready by the New Jersey School Boards Association, NJDOE, and NJIT.
Zywicki told NJ.com that he will help the Weehawken school district find an interim superintendent.
