Special Announcements

Dr. John Bormann Appointed as Rumson Superintendent of Schools

June 10, 2015   The Rumson Board of Education appointed John E. Bormann, Ed.D. as Superintendent of Schools at a Special Board of Education Meeting held last evening.  The new Superintendent will begin on July 24th. The Board began its search in early March and received over 30 applications. Several rounds of interviews were held, in which the full board participated.

Dr. Bormann is an accomplished and highly passionate educator with 19 years of experience in the field as a science teacher, Supervisor of Curriculum, and Superintendent/Principal. What distinguishes him from other educational leaders is that he treats education as a responsibility owed to the children of the community and believes teaching and learning should be elevated through the professional growth of teachers, the inspiration of communities, and the motivation of students. It is simple to explain why, if it doesn’t expand the possibilities for our students, why do it. John has a special interest in motivating the stakeholders in our children’s education to become better for their sake and he believes the road to success is in trying. He is determined to uncover the secrets of how to make this happen for the children of Rumson. Dr. Bormann holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Rutgers University in Environmental Science, a Master of Science from Ramapo College in Educational Technology, a Master of Arts degree from Georgian Court University in Educational Leadership, and a Doctorate from St. Peters University in Educational Leadership. Dr. Bormann was awarded the Milken Family Foundation National Educator Award, is a two time recipient of the Governor’s Teacher Recognition Award, and received, as superintendent, the Monmouth County Education Association Friend of Education Award.  He comes to us from the highly successful school district of Spring Lake, NJ where he served as the Chief School Administrator for the past four years.  When not delving into some educational issue you will find John in his Freehold home digging in the garden, searching for his next good book to read, or packing his bags to travel to another great destination.

There will be an opportunity for parents to come and meet Dr. Bormann on Tuesday, June 16th at 6:00 p,m. in the Forrestdale Cafeteria. Please join us in welcoming him to the Rumson community.
