Lavallette, New Jersey
Superintendent Jay Eitner is a proud product of the New Jersey public schools.  A graduate of Union High School in 1997, Jay attended The American University in Washington DC with a BA in interdisciplinary studies. He began his teaching career in Roselle, NJ teaching a variety of subjects, including social studies, computers, and literacy. Known for being ‘outside of the box’ and for strong technology infusion, Eitner strived to make a learning environment that was both student-centered and data-driven.  Jay received his Master's Degree in 2004 and was hired to teach 8th-grade social studies in the nationally recognized East Brunswick Public Schools. Eitner has written and received over $18,400,000 in grants for his students, schools, and districts.  Grants ranged from podcasting equipment to creating a fully-interactive goldrush experience, where students dug for gold during their westward expansion unit. Jay obtained his supervisor, principal, and school administrator certificates from the NJPSA NJ-EXCEL program in 2009.   Administratively, Eitner has served as a middle school Assistant Principal, a K-12 Supervisor, and has been a Superintendent of Schools in three districts.  He was the 2015 educators choice pick for the national Superintendent of the Year for the BAMMY awards. Currently, Eitner is consulting administrators and school board members across the country.
