The Randolph Board of Education approved Jackie Fik, a 22-year school district employee and current RMS instructional coach, as a new RMS vice principal beginning July 1. She will replace Liana Rozsa.
RMS Principal Dennis Copeland welcomed Fik to her new position and said “I am extremely pleased and looking forward to the contributions and value that that Mrs. Fik will add to the RMS community.”
Fik, a former RMS language arts teacher, has a bachelor’s degree in political science from Rutgers University and a master of arts in teaching from Fairleigh Dickinson University. She will complete a post-graduate educational leadership program with NJ EXCEL through the Foundation for Education Administration in June. Fik’s appointment is contingent on her pending certification.
Interim Superintendent Jennifer A. Fano said that “Jackie has spent the past 22 years as a dedicated employee of Randolph Township Schools, first as a language arts teacher at Ironia and later at Randolph Middle School. More recently, she has worked as an instructional coach at the middle school, educating our staff about the latest innovations in instruction, benefiting all of our students. She has been an asset to teachers and administrators in the middle school and we anticipate her transition to the role of vice principal to be seamless. She will be an asset to the administrative team as well.”
