West New York Superintendent of Schools John Fauta refuted recent reports that he had submitted his resignation letter and exclusively confirmed with Hudson County View that he will be retiring at the conclusion of the school year.
Fauta also took some time to reflect on his 22 years as an educator in the West New York school district, stating that he was fortunate to be a part of such a successful school system, giving a lot of credit to his staff.
Additionally, the top West New York school administrator noted that he was proud of all of his former students that went on to find success as police officers, school principals, coaches and various other fulfilling careers.
He said he was also thrilled to receive the AP District of the Year Award in 2011, among various other student achievement awards pertaining to attendance and graduation rates.
When I asked if Fauta had any regrets, he didnâ€™t mince words with his answer.
Finally, Fauta concluded by saying all of his assistant superintendents are qualified to succeed him, though he is unsure of who will be named the next superintendent of schools in West New York.
