BERKELEY, NJ — The former superintendent of the Central Regional School District approved his resignation at Tuesday’s Board of Education meeting.
Triantafillos Parlapanides resigned last month as he faced outrage for sharing 14-year-old Adriana Kuch’s personal details with the press.
But this resignation was discussed at last month’s meeting because it was revealed that the district was still paying him and that his resignation was not yet on the agenda to be approved. Read more: Ex-Central Super Still on Payroll After Resigning in Bullying Scandal
However, a resolution was adopted on Tuesday night confirming the separation between Parlapanides and the Board.
Since Parlapanides’ contract had not yet expired at the time of his resignation, it had to be approved by the Commissioner of Education.
That approval came just earlier in the afternoon on March 14, the same day as the meeting.
While the separation is effective immediately, his resignation, for retirement purposes, will be effective May 1, 2023.
Douglas Corbett is still serving as acting superintendent while the Board begins the search for their new, permanent superintendent. The superintendent, like Parlapanides, will also serve as the superintendent of the Seaside Heights School District.
