The Newark Board of Education announced that they have approved the hiring of Jonathan Mastin, Director Health, Physical Education and Athletics and Dean of Students for the Bloomfield Middle/High School to become the new Director of Physical Education, Health and Athletics for the Newark Central School District.
Effective August 1, Mastin will be filling the vacancy created by Chris Corey who became the Director of Physical Education and Health for the Rochester City School District on July 5th.
“As the new Director of Physical Education, Health and Athletics, Jon will need to address many of the suggestions highlighted in both the PE and the Athletic audits done during this last school year in our district. After a very rigorous vetting process, I believe we have the right person at the helm to continue moving our Athletic Program forward. His vast experience makes him the ideal candidate to come in and hit the ground running,” according to Superintendent Susan Hasenauer.
Mastin posted the following statement via Facebook on Tuesday evening:
“I have spent the better part of two decades at Bloomfield and truly enjoyed my time there. I will certainly miss the students, the staff and the entire community. I am incredibly grateful for all of the experiences that allowed me to learn and grow as a professional. Thank you Bomber Nation.
I am very much looking forward to beginning a new chapter of my story as a Newark Red!“
