EDISON – Carmelo Vaticano resigned from Edison’s school board last week. He cited time constraints caused by recent additions to his duties as a deputy chief in the Edison Police Department.
Vaticano’s term was due to end in April. The school board will accept applications to replace him until Dec. 9. The board will choose a successor on Dec. 16, and that person will hold the position until the April school election.
The new board member will have a role in the process of selecting a new superintendent of schools. The board is scheduled to begin reviewing candidates on Dec. 21.
Edison’s school district is the largest in Middlesex County, with about 14,400 students and 17 schools.
