Tony Trongone has assumed the top spot as president of the New Jersey Association of School Administrators (NJASA) for the 2022-2023 school year. He currently serves as superintendent of the Millville Public Schools.
Trongone, a chief education officer with over 17 years of administrative experience in New Jersey public schools, serves as a commissioner for the NJ Military Interstate Children’s Compact Commission. He was instrumental in the development of a NJ State Aid School Funding Formula for Military Connected Students.
Presiding at his first NJASA executive committee meeting as president, Trongone announced the establishment of two new NJASA ad hoc committees:
• NJASA School Security/Student Safety Ad Hoc Committee. This committee will address the dangers faced in schools across the nation, with particular focus on New Jersey.
• NJASA Staff Recruitment and Retention Ad Hoc Committee. This committee will focus on the serious shortage of qualified candidates for educational and support positions throughout the nation, especially in New Jersey.
President Trongone stated, “There is always more to do, but together, we’re creating opportunities for our children, and I firmly believe every student in New Jersey deserves an equal chance at success.”
A resident of Runnemede, Trongone earned his Master’s in educational administration from Wilmington University. He received his undergraduate degree in mathematics, summa cum laude from Rutgers College, Rutgers University.
