Ray Albano's tenure as interim school's chief in Glen Rock will be ending after about eight months.
Appointed to the district in late April after the sudden resignation of former Superintendent David Verducci, Albano will serve his last day on Feb. 8.
Albano is leaving for family reasons, he told the board. Albano was not immediately available for comment Tuesday afternoon.
"I thought he did a great job in Glen Rock," former school board president Rona McNabola told Patch.
Albano has been an interim superintendent at a number of districts for more than a decade. He previously ran Old Tappan before retiring in 1995.
The administrator has been working three-to-four days a week since his July start date, at $605 a day. He has not received health benefits.
The board is currently interviewing candidates to take over as a permanent superintendent. If they are unable to find a replacement quickly, they'll likely have to appoint another interim, McNabola said.
Newly-appointed BOE president Sheldon Hirschberg said the board has a glut of options available.
A number of Glen Rock administrators could take over in the interim, he said. Albano also knows others who might be able to fill in if needed, Hirschberg added.
"It's a bad situation but we have lots of alternatives that all make sense," he said.
