NEWARK – Cami Anderson will step down as Newark’s superintendent of schools by July 8, state Education Commissioner David Hespe announced today.

Hespe said he will recommend former state Education Commissioner Chris Cerf to replace her.

Cerf would need to be approved by the state Board of Education, Hespe said.

“Superintendent Anderson has worked tirelessly over the last four years to implement a bold educational vision for the students and parents of Newark,” Hespe said. “Under Cami’s leadership, the Newark school district signed a landmark teacher’s contract, implemented One Newark, and increased flexibility and support in virtually every school in Newark. We know that these positive educational reforms will continue to benefit the students and parents of Newark for years to come.

Gov. Chris Christie and Newark Mayor Ras Baraka plan to issue a more detailed statement in the coming days to establish a common vision and path forward for the future of the District, Hespe said.
