The North Plainfield School District has reportedly hired West Milford Superintendent James McLaughlin, Ed.D. as it's new superintendent after a six-month search.
McLaughlin, who reportedly will not start until January 2015, has been with the West Milford School District for only two years, and previously served as an assistant superintendent in Cranford. He is also an adjunct professor of Special Education at both Kean University and St. Peter's University.
The new administrator received his B.A. in Elementary and Special Education from St. John's University in 1984, and his education doctorate from Seton Hall University in 1998. In between he received a Master's degree in learning disabilities from Kean University.
