Dear Nutley Staff, Parents and Community Members,

Recently, the Nutley Board of Education learned of factors impacting the finances of the Nutley Public Schools. The District took immediate action and has employed the help of professionals who specialize in this area. In addition, the District is working closely with the County Offices of the New Jersey Department of Education to come to a resolution. 

The Nutley Public District is committed to the education of its students and will continue to manage this matter. The District does not anticipate a change in the programs or the education of the students of Nutley.

We thank you for your support and patience as we work through this period. The District and Board of Education will continue to communicate with you as more information is available.


Mr. Kent Bania, Superintendent of Schools
