Superintendent Peter Carter bids farewell to Hoboken

Today's post is taken largely from The Jersey Journal in an article published earlier this week By Katie Colaneri/The Jersey Journal
After a year and a half of work in the district, Interim Superintendent of Schools Peter E. Carter bided farewell to Hoboken earlier this week.

Carter was
hired in July 2009 to replace the former superintendent and held the post throughout a long search process for a permanent superintendent which drew to an apparent close when the Board of Education voted to hire Dr. Mark Toback. Dr. Toback is expected to enter the district sometime in the next few months.

The superintendent, who was unable to be reached for comment today, leaves behind a new eighth grade laptop program which
Toback has said he will continue.

Interim Assistant Superintendent Walter Rusak will continue as Interim Superintendent until Toback actually arrives in March. Carter will remain as a consultant 10 hours per week to ease the transition, according to
his final letter to parents and residents on Jan. 25.

"It's been a pleasure," he wrote. "Bye bye, Hoboken; Hoboken, bye bye!"

In a separate story from Hoboken Patch, Mr. Carter was quoted as saying,

“I’m leaving it a thousand percent better than I found it,” Carter said about the Hoboken school district. “I was able to clean up so many things which were incorrect with the district." -P. Carter
