UPDATE: LSTA Director hired by Lakewood School District to help with busing

Just days after announcing they were firing the Transportation Director, the Lakewood School District says they have hired the LSTA Director to help save money.

LSTA Director Avrohom Krawiec was hired on Friday, just days after it was announced Lisa Vargas was being fired – after inefficiencies were exposed.

“I am ready to assist the district on all matters related to transportation and enable efficiencies where possible to save the district money,” Krawiec told TLS.

Krawiec will still continue to run the LSTA, which handles the busing for Lakewood approximately 30,000 private school students. Approximately 98% of next year’s busing has already been coordinated.

“I will spend time getting acclimated within the district’s system to see where and what can be done to enable efficiencies,” Krawiec said.

  1. What would this town do without Rabbi Krawiecz!! Hashem should grant him much koach!! He should run for president!!!! And he’s do a great job at it!!!! With people like him around this town would finally be headed in the right direction!!!
    Good luck!

  2. Well kudos to his wife! Behind every successful man there is a woman!!!
    Hatzlacha to you both!!
    You should have much Bracha and MaZel as you continue to help the Klal!!!

  3. So were there two Directors? Reminds me of a famous Gommorah with regards to Eliahu Ha-Navi. Nothing personal meant, I am unfamiliar with the bureaucracy at LSTA, just saying.

  4. Avrohom Krawiec is a multi talented individual who reminds me of his Zeide, R Avrohom Newhouse Z”l. He too, was oisek bzorchei tzibbur bemunah, and gave of himself wholeheartedly to chinuch.
