Anthony Padlo was an at-large member of the Elizabeth Board of Education in New Jersey. He is a candidate for an at-large seat on the board in the general election on November 4, 2014.

He was appointed to the board a second time on January 17, 2013, in order to fill the seat vacated by former board president Marie Munn, who resigned following an arrest and grand jury indictment regarding allegations that she had misreported her family's income so that her children could benefit from the federally subsidized school lunch program in the district.[1] Padlo lost his re-election bid again on November 5, 2013.

Issues in the district

District expansion and online offerings

Over the decade leading up to the 2013 election, Elizabeth Public Schools added 13 new school buildings in order to reduce overcrowding in district schools and to expand educational offerings to the student body. Two new schools, the iPrep Academy School No. 8 and Mravlag of Elmora Hills School No. 21, were added for the 2013-2014 school year. Students at the iPrep Academy magnet school all receive tablets or notebook computers in addition to having complete online access to class materials and to other learning software following the 1-to-1 model. The school is participating in the "Teach To One" education model developed by New Classrooms of New York City to use algorithmic approaches and adoptive learning strategies to improve mathematics instruction. Mravlag of Elmora Hills School is also providing its students with tablets and notebook computers along with offering online course materials.[4]

Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin, not a race. Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously. As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100 percent. Each column will add up to 100 percent after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages, although rounding by the Census Bureau may make the total one or two tenths off from being exactly 100 percent.[8]
