The South Orange-Maplewood Board of Education will meet in Special Public and Executive Sessions on June 17 (starting at 6:30 p.m.) and June 19 (starting at 10 a.m.) to evaluate Superintendent Dr. Ronald G. Taylor. No action will be taken in either meeting.
These sessions will start in public sessions and then move into executive sessions for the evaluation discussions.
Taylor has been the South Orange Maplewood superintendent since July of 2019. This past February, the Board of Education faced controversy within its own members over BOE President Thair Joshua’s decision to withhold Taylor’s mid-year evaluation from three new board members.
Board of Education member Kamal Zubieta recently resigned, citing “an exclusive inner circle” and the lack of “collegiality.”
The BOE is currently accepting applications for someone to replace Zubieta.
