Continuity of Operations
Earning a Baccalaureate Degree from the University of St. Thomas (Houston, TX) and advanced degrees from Fairleigh Dickenson and Rutgers Universities, Eugene (Gene) Vasile’s expansive academic preparation includes secondary education, human development, and human resources/labor relations. An educator with thirty-six years of public sector experience Gene retired from his position as the Superintendent of Schools in Parsippany-Troy Hills, NJ in February 2006.
Gene’s tenure as a school district administrator encompassed a period that included some of the most horrific tragedies in American and World History. The impact of events such as the bombing of the Murrah Office Building in Oklahoma City, the Columbine and Jonesboro shootings, the Beslan school massacre, the 9/11/2001 attacks, the anthrax attacks, as well as other equally heinous events, seriously altered the focus of school district administrators whose primary responsibility is to assure the safety and well being of those in their charge.
With responsibility for over eight thousand students and staff Gene worked with local and state resources to develop crisis management plans based on assessments of potential disruptions from human and natural causes and worked with staff to address the many facets of school climate, a principal factor identified in school violence studies.
Since his retirement Gene has been certified by the North Carolina Dispute Resolution Commission to provide mediation services in Superior Court Matters and Matters before the Clerk of the Courts.
Gene is available to share his expertise with school districts and other institutions.
