A Message from Our
Acting Superintendent

Dr. RaShawn Adams

Dear Asbury Park Blue Bishop Family,

The Asbury Park Board of Education has entrusted me with the position of acting superintendent of schools, a role I humbly accepted and am honored to take. For the last 24 years, I have made it my mission to serve the students and staff in many different roles and districts that I have worked – from a classroom teacher, principal, director, chief academic officer to now acting superintendent. I have embraced every day as an opportunity to help this community improve the life options and opportunities for students since 2015 in the Asbury Park School District.

As we head into the next chapter of our history together, I am committed to leading the district through this transition with the guiding principles of transparency, accountability and systemic excellence. APSD must continue to make the wellbeing and success of students and employees a priority. I want to invite you to join me in taking on this challenge.

The COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on our schools and families remain a constant challenge to the efficacy of our roles as educators. The enormous work ahead of us to accelerate our students’ learning opportunities and to diminish learning gaps is vital. We are no different from many of our contemporaries in the profession dealing with the challenges as a result of COVID 19. We as a district will continue to following the guidelines and recommendations of the health care professionals and I am certain that without a doubt, the district will make this transition to full-time, in-person learning. I have every confidence that APSD is on solid ground and that we will emerge ready and committed to serving the children of Asbury Park.

Let’s continue to work together to educate, empower and facilitate greatness for our students and the entire community of Asbury Park.

Dr. RaShawn M. Adams, Acting Superintendent of Schools
