Jeff Rutzky, a former middle school principal from the Parsippany Hills School District, has been named the superintendent of the West Orange School District.

According to a blog post on West Orange Patch by that school district's board president Sandra Mordecai, the decision was made earlier this month to tap Rutzky as the new schools chief, and the board's April 28 meeting will finalize the decision.

Rutzky's contract is expected to begin July 1, 2014. He currently serves as the superintendent of the Roseland School District, the blog said. He's been an elementary principal in the Ridgefield School District and an assistant high school principal in the Teaneck School District during his career.

I worked under Mr. Rutzky in Kinnelon years ago. He is a very caring professional. I congratulate him and wish him well in his new position.

I didn't know he worked in Kinnelon, but he has bounced around a lot. Good with the kids not so good with adults. Seems to want to do whatever he has to do to advance. Good luck.
