Agudath Israel’s Rabbi Avi Schnall Appointed Chairman of New Jersey DOE Nonpublic School Committee

On Tuesday morning, Rabbi Avi Schnall, New Jersey director for Agudath Israel of America, was appointed chairman of the nonpublic school committee for the New Jersey Department of Education (DOE).

The committee is comprised of nearly two dozen representatives of the nonpublic school community in the state of New Jersey, including representatives from the Catholic Conference, Christian, Muslim and independent schools. The committee meets regularly with the DOE Office of Nonpublic Schools and considers policy and regulatory decisions pertaining to nonpublic schools. The committee gives the private school community an opportunity to meet directly with government officials responsible for oversight of their schools.

Rabbi Schnall has been a member of the committee for several years and negotiated substantial improvements in special education regulations due, in part, to his participation on this committee.

“Rabbi Schnall’s appointment as chairman will hopefully enhance his ability to advocate on behalf of students in nonpublic schools and their families,” Agudah said.
