Former superintendent, Anthony Cavanna has been hired in Paterson, earning a six-figure salary, after leaving the West Orange school district under unusual circumstances, according to a report on PatersonPress.com. Paterson Public Schools hired Cavanna as one of four executive directors for principal evaluation and coaching at $156,363 a year. Cavanna was placed on paid administrative leave pending further investigation into “district issues,” in July 2012. The following October, he resigned from his $228,316 position as superintendent. The new position is part of a plan created by state-appointed superintendent Donnie Evans to try to improve city schools.
