Back to the future? Seitz Sighting

PARSIPPANY — The recent resignation of Parsippany Schools Superintendent Scott Rixford has created a vacancy for the school system’s top position.  Rixford, embroiled in a Middle School scheduling controversy will be on medical leave through December with his resignation becoming final in January.

At Thursday’s Board of Education meeting, several sources told Parsippany Focus that former Superintendent Leroy Seitz was seen leaving the building shortly before the evening’s meeting began. Seitz, no stranger to controversy himself, became the target of Chris Christie in 2010 when the board approved a new contract for Seitz which was rescinded more than a year later under pressure from the state Department of Education.

As Parsippany Patch reported at the time, “the brouhaha that grew to a fever pitch over the disputed pact, which violated a superintendents’ salary cap imposed by Gov. Chris Christie in Feb. 2011, media were awash in stories of BOE squabbles, lawsuits and Christie’s labeling of Seitz as a “poster boy of greed.”

A source not authorized to speak on the record told Parsippany Focus that Seitz interviewed to become the next interim Superintendent.
