John Pituch, Charles, Caraballo, and Carol P. Marcus were sworn into new three-year terms. Sheldon Bross was sworn into a one-year unexpired term. 
Lauren Grecco was selected to lead the board as its president for 2014. She was the president last year.

Maryann Rickelmann is the board's vice president. 

Sheldon Bross will serve as the Bloomingdale representative on the Butler Board of Education. 

PTA to Host Special Meeting

Grecco announced that the Parent Teacher Association will host a special meeting about the upcoming PARCC assessments and new common core curriculum. The meeting will be held in the Walter T. Bergen Library Wednesday at 7 p.m.
PARCC stands for Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers. The consortium of 18 states is to develop a common set of assessments in English and math.

Bloomingdale students in fourth and sixth grades will be the first ones to take the electronic assessment. Students will use new laptops to complete the assessment.
