Woodbridge School Chief Appointed to ESCNJ’s Board of Directors

PISCATAWAY – August 19, 2021 – Dr. Joseph Massimino, superintendent of the Woodbridge Township School District, has been appointed to the Educational Services Commission of New Jersey’s (ESCNJ) Board of Directors.


Dr. Massimino, who has worked with the Woodbridge School District for almost 20 years, is highly familiar with ESCNJ’s work to provide services to students with disabilities throughout central New Jersey.


He began his career in 2002 as a social studies teacher at Woodbridge High School and held various administrative positions in the district before being named the school’s superintendent earlier this year.


“I am truly honored to have this opportunity to be a member of the prestigious ESCNJ board,” Dr. Massimino said. “Being a part of the Woodbridge school system for so many years, and working with students with disabilities, I believe my contribution will be mutually beneficial to the students in my district as well as the students at ESCNJ.”


He looks forward to working closely with other superintendents on the Board of Directors and the ESCNJ administrative team to provide the latest services available that enhance the quality of education for students with challenging disabilities.


“Dr. Massimino is a very welcome addition to our Board. His extensive background and many years of experience as an educator and administrator will make him a valuable resource as we chart our future,” said ESCNJ Schools Superintendent Mark Finkelstein.


A native of Woodbridge, Dr. Massimino attended the same schools he oversees today as superintendent, a district he truly calls home.  He attended Rutgers University for both his bachelor’s and doctorate degrees, and has a master’s degree from Kean University.
