PARSIPPANY — Nicholas C. Kumburis officially resigned from Parsippany-Troy Hills School District Board of Education as of midnight on January 1, 2018.
Below is the resignation letter he submitted to the School Board in September:
“In November of 2016, I was elected by the residents of Parsippany-Troy Hills to represent them as a member of the Board of Education. I had two main reasons for running. First was to participate in the Superintendent search and second was to ensure our budget money was being properly spent. With the hiring of Dr. Sargent, I have full confidence the board as a whole has made the right selection. I firmly believe Dr. Sargent will take our school district to the next level. As for the second part, I have learned that the board and faculty do everything within their power to ensure the education of our students is maximized given the financial constraints of the tax cap and state funding formula,” the letter stated
“Having served the district in good faith, I now wish to return to my primary role as parent of children in this district. I have given my notice that I will finish out this year and forego the remainder of my term. I have gotten to know the members of the board, as well as Dr. Sargent. Each one cares deeply and works tirelessly to ensure our children receive a quality education. I am certain that the district will continue to thrive with or without my presence. I fully intend to continue my involvement in the community through coaching, mentoring, fundraising, science programs, and fostering a love of continual learning. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to serve our district in this capacity,” said Nick Kumburis.
The remaining two years of his term will be filled by appointment.
