The new school district superintendent was welcomed by the Township Committee on Wednesday during the governing body’s workshop meeting.
Daniel Simon, who took over as schools superintendent July 1, attended the committee’s meeting, introducing himself to committee members and pledging his commitment to working collaboratively with the municipal government.
“I can guarantee you that when there’s something that seems as if its truly a Wall Township effort between the schools and the entire community, I’ll be reaching out,’’ Simon said.
Daniel Simon, former principal of High Technology High School, beat out a field of about 30 applicants over a 10-month-long search for the district’s top spot.
Members of the committee also said they were excited to enter into a new era of cooperation between the government and the school system.
“We’re here to offer you any help that you need,’’ Mayor Jeffrey Foster said. “I’m sure you have a lot of new ideas and the township committee is behind you 110 percent.’’
“We look forward to a good relationship,’’ Committeewoman Ann Marie Conte said.
“I know the committee is very eager to get going in liaison work and to sit down and sit down to brainstorm different ideas,’’ township administrator Jeff Bertram said.
