Suspended Woodbridge Principal Returns To Work As Supervisor

WOODBRIDGE – The principal of a Woodbridge elementary school who was accused of encouraging cheating on standardized tests is returning to work next week after an investigation into the allegations was inconclusive, according to a Star-Ledger report.

Dara Kurlander will be employed as the district’s supervisor of English as a second language and bilingual programs and several other areas, according to the report, earning the same salary she would have made as the principal of Avenel Street Elementary School.

Kurlander has denied any wrongdoing in regard to the cheating scandal and has filed a defamation suit against the state Department of Education to clear her name.

Four other Woodbridge educators were implicated in the cheating allegations.
