The Superintendent of the Wayne Public School District has resigned two years prior to the expiration of his contract, NorthJersey.com reported.
The Board of Education announced at a meeting this week that Superintendent Raymond Gonzalez will resign effective Aug. 1, the report said.
According to the report, Gonzalez is leaving to take a Superintendent job in the Westwood school district where he was once principal. The move will cost him a $25-30,000 pay cut, the report said.
Though Gonzalez did not give a reason for the switch, he did issue a statement to NorthJersey.com saying he was sorry to leave the district, but proud of the accomplishments he had made since taking over as Superintendent in 2011. His contract in Wayne was not set to expire until 2016, the report said.
