Dr. Adam Fried, su­per-- in­ten­dent for the Har­ring­ton n Park school district, was s se­lected as North­ern Re­gional Su­per­in­ten­dent of the Year by the New Jer­sey As­so­ci­a­tion of School Ad­min­is­tra­tors (NJASA). He be­gan his ca­reer 23 years ago as a mid­dle school teacher in Ridge­field Park and later served as prin­ci­pal and direc­tor of ed­u­ca­tion in Hawthorne. He was ap­pointed su­per­in­ten­dent for Har­ring­ton Park in 2006.

The re­gional win­ners needd a min­i­mu­mii of f five years as a chief ed­u­ca­tion of­fi­cer and are judged on their record of ser­vice as ed­u­ca­tors. There were three re­gional win­ners and they all “are ex­cel­lent role mod­els for all as­pir­ing chief ed­u­ca­tion of­fi­cers to em­u­late,” NJASA Ex­ec­u­tive Direc­tor Dr. Richard G. Bozza says. “They are re­sults-ori­ented ed­u­ca­tors who con­tin­u­ally strive to im­prove the qual­ity of ed­u­ca­tion for all stu­dents they serve.”

Dur­ing Fried’s ten­ure in Har­ring­ton Park he has over­seen the im­ple­men­ta­tion of sev­eral ini­tia­tives “that rad­i­cally trans­formed the learn­ing cul­ture of the district while in­creas­ing stu­dent achieve­ment and staff en­gage­ment,” the school board said in a press re­lease.
