New Board Member Appointed

The Board received applications from five very qualified candidates for the recently vacated Board seat and, following interviews held in October, made the difficult decision of choosing one to fill that position through December 2015. Charles “Chuck” Jones was sworn in at the November BOE Meeting. Mr. Jones, a lifelong educator, currently operates an educational consulting firm in Red Bank.

Prior to moving back to his childhood home in Rumson, he had been a headmaster, middle school principal, teacher, and coach at various private/parochial schools in New Jersey and the southeast.  Dr. Jones holds a Doctorate of Education from the Curry School of Education, University of Virginia, in addition to degrees from Columbia University and Princeton. 

Chuck has been involved in many non-profits over the years, and currently sits on the Boards of Trinity Hall and the Monmouth County Historical Association.  Chuck’s wife Shea is an experienced Spanish teacher and they have two children at Forrestdale School (Charlie Gr 5 and Reece Gr 4) and another child, Cooper, who will enter Deane-Porter next year.
