    Important Message from the Board of Education and the Superintendent of Schools

    Dear Wayne Residents: We feel compelled to respond to Mayor Christopher Vergano’s February 7th presentation at the Wayne Township Council meeting and the follow-up video he distributed throughout the community. While we recognize and respect differing perspectives, his actions were a complete surprise to the Board of Education and the District administration. There was no prior mention of his opposition to the school referendum, and his presentation was not listed as part of the Council’s agenda.
