The Hillsdale Board of Education accepted the resignation of Superintendent Kevin Brentnall effective June 30, 2016. Dr. Brentnall resigned from his position to pursue other professional opportunities.

    The Board is fortunate that they were able to retain the services of an experienced retired Superintendent, Dr. Jeffrey Feifer, who has been appointed as the Interim Superintendent beginning July 1, 2016. Dr. Feifer has a long distinguished career, having retired from the Closter School District.  He has since provided his services as Interim Superintendent for the Norwood, Old Tappan, Oakland, and most recently, Ringwood School District.  Dr. Feifer will be meeting with district administration over the next several weeks to ensure a proper transition for the summer and the 2016-2017 school year.
