“It has been a wonderful experience serving alongside such intelligent, dedicated individuals and I’m proud of the work we’ve done together,” Ms. Pietrobono wrote in her resignation letter, citing “commitments in my work and personal life [that] have made it increasingly difficult for me to find the time to devote to my Board work.”

Ms. Pietrobono was appointed to the Board of Education in February 2016 to fill an unexpired term and was then elected in November 2016 to a three-year term. Her two sons are both graduates of Highland Park High School.

The Board of Education has announced that it will fill the vacant seat at its February 11, 2019 meeting following public interviews of the applicant pool. The appointed member would serve the remainder of Ms. Pietrobono’s term, which expires December 31, 2019.

Interested applicants must be residents of Highland Park and registered voters and can submit a letter of interest and resume to the Board of Education no later than 10 a.m. Tuesday, January 22, 2019. All submissions must be sent to:

Ms. Linda Hoefele
Board Secretary
Highland Park Board of Education
435 Mansfield Street
Highland Park, NJ 08904

The successful application will be required to participate in a state-mandated criminal history background check and to provide financial/relative disclosures.
