The Verona Board of Education will have a meet-and-greet tonight with Verona’s new candidate for superintendent, Rui Dionisio. The event begins at 7 p.m. in the media center at Verona High School.

Dionisio has lived in Verona since 2008 and is currently the principal of Cranford High School. He has a background in math and science education, which the BOE is working to expand. He was graduated from Montclair State University in 1999 with a bachelors of science in biology and chemistry, and got his masters in educational administration and supervision from MSU in 2006. Dionisio recently completed work on his Ed.D. in educational leadership at Seton Hall University.

The BOE will put a resolution about the new hire on the agenda on Tuesday, June 17, but Dionisio has a 60-day notice clause in his current contract with Cranford and so may not be able to start until later this summer. With current Superintendent Steve Forte leaving for his new job in Denville on July 1, Verona’s director of curriculum, Charlie Miller, will serve as interim superintendent.
