Meet The 2019 Parsippany Board of Education Candidates

PARSIPPANY — All candidate running for the Parsippany-Troy Hills Board of Education were asked a series of eight questions.  Answers are published in the order received by Parsippany Focus.

Four candidates filed petitions for seats on the Parsippany Board of Education by the deadline of Monday, July 29. There are three seats available for the term ending December 31. Board Member Mr. Joseph Cistaro is not seeking re-election. Alison Cogan and Andrew Choffo are seeking re-election.

The election will be held in conjunction with the General Election of 2019 on Tuesday, November 5.

Each candidate was asked the following questions:

  1. What specific academic subject or technology would you most like to see changed or implemented in our schools?
  2. Rank the stakeholders who you feel the Board of Education should be concerned with in order from highest priority (1 is highest priority)- taxpayers, students, teachers, the community at large.
  3. What about your background makes you feel uniquely qualified to serve on Parsippany’s Board of Education?
  4. What cost efficiency might you propose to curb rising taxes?
  5. As previously posted on Parsippany Focus, a petition has been circulating through town and nearly 1,000 people have signed asking for increased busing.  How would you respond to residents?
  6. Do you think Parsippany has done enough to address school safety? If not, what specific improvements would you propose?
  7. What do you think is best about the Parsippany school system and what do you think could use the most improvement?
  8. What non-academic capability do you think is most important for today’s students to learn in preparation for the future, and what is the best way Parsippany can assist them in learning this?
