Hoboken Board of Ed Business Administrator, Assistant No Longer Employed By District

With only a few weeks to go until the start of the new school year, Hoboken Superintendent of Schools Dr. Mark Toback confirmed on Friday morning that the two employees no longer work for the district.

Hoboken Board of Education Business Administrator William Takacs and his assistant Maria Vazquez are no longer working for the district, Superintendent of Schools Dr. Mark Toback confirmed Friday morning. 

"They're not here today," Toback said. "They're no longer with the school district." 

He added that "any employment action is subject to Board of Education approval."

Takacs, who followed former Business Administrator Rob Davis' footsteps earlier this year, also served as the school board's secretary after former secretary Anthony David retired.  left earlier this year, and was the one who brought in Takacs.

Takacs' appointment was approved by the board. 

Takacs formerly served as the Hudson County Executive School Business Administrator, and was hired at an annual salary of $130,000. 

It's unclear why the two employees—who as of Friday morning were still listed on the BOE's website as employees of the Business Office—were evidently terminated. 

Without Takacs and Vazquez, the district's business office has eight employees.

Toback said he couldn't elaborate on more details, because it was a "confidential" personnel issue.

both are kids first majority hires..kids first personnel committee made up of kids first majority..father of newly hired coordinator(new position w stipend) , Mr. Davis, was the mentor for newly fired sba , Was he not? or was it the other Carter Crony, DoneNow. ? so confusing, so many business office ADMINISTRATORS...think it ran better with the more competent clerks who luckily retired.

Yeah, so much better if you are an auditor and you want to find all sorts of signs of incompetence, mismanagement and poor record keeping so you can write up a 200 page audit report full of violations. Not better if you are a taxpayer. Clearly they left for a reason, were let go or otherwise removed. If it is b/c of something wrong they did, then I fail to see the problem. Employees who screw up majorly need to be replaced and if that is what happened, I for one am satisfied. Everyone should support that. Question is why don't you two support that sort of non-nonsense attitude?

You mean when the district had 29 audit violations? When Hoboken had to pay David Anthony 40,000 dollars a year to take notes once a month at a board meeting? Takacs did not work out, Toback got rid of him. If this were pre Kids First they would have given him araise made up a new position for him and hired another friend to fill the job.
