Oakland NJ, The Ramapo Indian Hills Regional High School District has seen another departure in its administrative team. Elizabeth McDermond, the district’s director of curriculum, has been hired by the Mount Olive Township Board of Education to become the assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction. Her annual salary for this role is reported to be $175,000.

McDermond had presented the curriculum for the upcoming school year for the Ramapo Indian Hills district at a board meeting in August. During that meeting, concerns were raised by parents and board members about the curriculum’s language and its perceived inclusion of certain ideologies.

The Ramapo Indian Hills Regional High School District serves students from Wyckoff, Oakland, and Franklin Lakes and operates both Ramapo and Indian Hills high schools. McDermond’s departure marks the third administrative change in the district this year. In April, Business Administrator Thomas Lambe announced his move to the Livingston district in Essex County, and in August, Superintendent Rui Dionisio announced his departure to take charge of the Fair Lawn district.

The district has also experienced changes in its legal representation, with multiple shifts in general counsel this year. This series of changes in leadership and administration has raised attention and questions within the community. It remains to be seen how these changes will impact the district’s operations and future initiatives.

One thought on “Ramapo Indian Hills School District Loses Director of Curriculum

  1. We had our own doozy of an Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum, one Regina Botsford.

    At a certain level of renown and pay, such individuals are commissioned to denude the curriculum of any and all edifying content and (phonily) replace it with a focus on “process”.

    This is part and parcel with the whole “reform math” fiasco, but really extends into all complex subjects.

    Cloward-Piven in action. These people are evil.
