Ms. Dana Chibbaro Appointed New PrincipalDear Kenilworth School Community:

After an exhaustive and thorough search, I am pleased to announce that last night Ms. Dana Chibbaro was appointed by our Board of Education as the new principal of David Brearley Middle / High School.

Our search was driven by input from our entire school community.  Ms. Chibbaro was selected from a competitive pool of over 90 applicants that was narrowed through a series of interviews by groups of teachers, administrators, students and parents, our Board Personnel committee, and our Superintendent. 

Ms. Chibbaro comes to the district with well over two decades of experience in education.  Most recently, she has been an assistant principal at Toms River High School South.  Before working in Toms River, Ms. Chibbaro worked in Keansburg as an assistant principal, served as a senior content director for the Newark Public Schools, owned and operated a Goddard School, and worked for 10 years as a high school teacher and department chair at Point Pleasant Borough high school.

Ms. Chibbaro will begin in our schools once she has satisfied her contractual requirements in Toms River, which we anticipate being in mid-August.

I welcome her to Kenilworth and wish her the best of luck as the principal of David Brearley.

Dr. Thomas W. Tramaglini
Superintendent of Schools
