Lloyd Road Principal Resigns

The board voted to accept his resignation at their June 11 meeting

principal Luigi Laugelli will part ways with the Matawan Aberdeen Regional School District in August. 

Laugelli was the principal at the upper elementary school for one academic year after former principal Patricia O'Keefe retired in June of 2011. He handed in his letter of resignation last week citing "personal reasons", according to Superintendent David Healy.

Healy denied rumors that Laugelli had been asked to resign after it came to light during the May 21 Board of Education meeting that the Owleus Anti-Bullying Program, a program designed to teach children how to understand bullying and how to stand up to it, was never rolled out at Lloyd Road School.

"He was not asked to resign and he's been offered a number of positions," Healy said after the June 11 board meeting. "I can't speculate why he chose to resign. It was his reason."

Laugelli's resignation will take effect on Aug. 4. An was recently hired for Lloyd Road, however no one has been selected for principal of the school, Healy said.

Why? Could it be that his predecessor was not successful or well liked? Maybe Lincroft didn't have a good frame of reference.

Maybe you should get information about the staff before making such a comment. I spend a great deal of time with them and have done so for the past 4 years. Staff is totally professional. No need to shake them up. Perhaps your former principal is the one who needs shaking up.

Very true. Maybe Kiki and Mary have an explanation for this since they think he is the best of the best.

I don't know about the former Lloyd Road principal, since my kids have already finished with grades 4 & 5, but I know the same teachers are still there. I've seen many of them in the past, protesting new initiatives and changes in the district, and believe me, they were not professional! I would even say, there are some, not all, but some, teachers and administrators that I would consider to be bullies throughout all the schools in the district. I think it is very sad and disheartening to the good teachers and administrators, that this profession has been so marred by those who really shouldn't be in the education field.

On the front page of the Link- it looks like Lloyd Road now lost their not-yet Assistant Principal too. http://thelinknews.net/ Doesn't it alarm ANYONE that administrators are willing to take jobs in districts that pay less (MARSD has one of the highest paying administrative guide in the county) just to avoid working here? AND that the Board has it on this upcoming Monday night's agenda that they are 'terminating his employement'? Again, covering up the truth- they found out he was board approved elsewhere and 'terminated' him publicly to save face.
