The Verona Board of Education announced at Tuesday night’s meeting that Dawn DuBois has tendered her resignation. BOE President John Quattrocchi said that changes to DuBois’ professional commitments had made it no longer possible for her to serve.

“I had to give it up because the Board’s work requires a great deal of attention,” DuBois said on Wednesday. “I would like to commend the members of the Board for the many hours they spend on their work.”

Quattrocchi said that the BOE would be seeking someone to fill the remainder of DuBois’ term, which expires in November 2014. He said that any Verona resident who is interested in serving should e-mail a resume and cover letter to Cheryl Nardino in the BOE office at [email protected] no later than Monday, October 7. He said the Board would designate an evening for interviews with candidates in one of its public sessions and then appoint a replacement.

DuBois encouraged interested residents to pursue the opening. “The governance of the school system is complicated,” she said. “The Board is wrestling with many issues. I think that the people of Verona need to be supportive of the Board and get involved.”

There will be an election for two seats on the Verona Board of Education in November, and four candidates have filed to contest the spots. Incumbents Glenn Elliott and Michael Unis are both seeking re-election; James Day, a Windemere Road resident, and Judith DiNapoli, a former school district employee who lives on Hillside are challengers.
