The search was launched this spring when Schools Superintendent Brian Betze announced his retirement effective June 30. School officials then conducted numerous interviews and ultimately hired Jeff C. Gorman, Ed.D as the interim superintendent, effective July 1.

School Board President Peter Oehlberg said the school district received many applications for the interim superintendent position, noting that Dr. Gorman’s qualifications stood out.

“Dr. Gorman’s past experience leading school districts is exemplary,” Oehlberg said. “He was clearly the best candidate to lead us, as we chart our plan for a very bright future for the Robbinsville Public Schools.”

The school district has launched a search for a permanent superintendent, engaging the services of the New Jersey School Boards Association to guide the process for what will be “the most important decision for the next three to five years for our school district,” the school board president said.

“I am delighted to have joined this fine district,” Dr. Gorman said. “I look forward to working with the Board of Education, administration, teaching staff, support staff, and the community to continue strengthening the foundation and everything built on it. Although the word interim refers to `time between,’ I want to assure everyone that my heart and caring for this district will be `full time’ as the district transitions to hiring a new permanent superintendent.”

Since November 2022, Dr. Gorman has served as the interim assistant superintendent of curriculum and instruction for the Tenafly Public Schools. Previously, for seven years, he was deputy superintendent for the Mount Vernon City School District in New York.

Between 2008 and 2014, Dr. Gorman was the assistant superintendent for the Monroe Township schools in Middlesex County, after serving as assistant principal and principal of the Applegarth Middle School in the town from 1996 to 2008.

Dr. Gorman earned his doctorate in educational leadership from Rowan University, a masters’ degree in education administration from Kean University and his undergraduate degree in elementary education from the College of New Jersey.
