The Board of Ed appointed him to assume the interim post concurrent with current Superintendent Frank Roselli’s retirement on June 30 – the same day Gialanella leaves his 11-year hitch in Jackson.

The board also appointed Dr. Marianne Gaffney as interim Assistant Superintendent.

Gialanella’s accomplishments in Jackson include the establishment of Jackson Liberty High School – the township’s second – as well as the addition of an elementary school, redrawing of attendance borders, infrastructure renovations and technology initiatives aimed at student achievement.

His 40-year career also include 29 years in the Brick Township school district, where he served as a teacher, guidance counselor, Assistant Principal at Brick Township High School, and assistant football coach.
