The challenges ahead for Lyndhurst Schools include COVID-19 and lack of classrooms; lack of teachers; closing Lincoln School for the development of apartments by the Board of Commissioners; missing finalized legal agreements to transfer the new Middle School with proper review and legal due diligence by the BOE; and, multiple elementary schools undergoing difficulties with construction improvements that are overdue and over-budget.
The likelihood is strong that Lyndhurst will be experiencing untenable choices ahead.
So, it’s a less than the perfect time for Scott Bisig to quit as Business Administrator of Lyndhurst Schools, especially after Bisig was just given tenure (job security) a few months ago by the Lyndhurst Board of Education in his BA position overseeing the financial and business management of the Lyndhurst School System.
Congratulations, Mr. Bisig. I respect that you are doing what’s in your personal best interests, even though I don’t respect the lack of notice given of your interest in leaving Lyndhurst at a tough time, so we could be better prepared to make the transition.

HERE IS THE BOE RESOLUTION VOTED ON MONDAY, OCTOBER 19, 2020 HIRING MR. BISIG IN RIDGEWOOD:
HERE IS MR. BISIG’S RESUME AS FOUND ON THE LYNDHURST BOARD OF EDUCATION WEBSITE:
Before providing a further insight into my professional background, I first and foremost want to thank the Lyndhurst Board of Education and the Lyndhurst Public School District’s family for welcoming me into the Bears Den. I look forward to serving the district with distinction and supporting the future of the Lyndhurst community.
My professional background began when I graduated from William Paterson University with a bachelor’s in science in Business Administration with concentration in Finance & Economics. After graduating college, I served twenty-one years combined service between active duty and the reserves in U.S. Armed Forces before retiring from the Army Reserves as a Major with the Corp of Engineers. While in the Army Reserves, I was also fortunate to serve a second career as a Law Enforcement Officer with the Borough of New Milford, where I retired in 2004. During that time, I earned my Master’s Degree in Education through American InterContinental University with honors in Curriculum Design.
Once retiring from the Armed Forces, and law Enforcement, I began my teaching career at the middle school level teaching Computer Applications and Introduction to Business. I then moved onto the high school where I taught Personal Finance, Business Law, and Business Management where I was awarded National Honors for finishing in the top 5% of High Schools Nationwide for teaching the W! SE (Working in Support of Education) Certification Courses in Personal Finance and received the distinguished Star Teacher of the Year honors twice for Bergen County through The Record and Prudential Bank. During this time, I earned another Post Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership from Thomas Edison State College with honors in 2010 and was awarded acceptance into the Kappa Delta Pi International Honor Society.
Leaving the classroom to enter the District Office as a School Business Administrator for one of the largest K-6 district in New Jersey enabled me to continue building my knowledge base in Public Education Finances. This transition led to this current opportunity to become a professional member within the prestigious community of the Lyndhurst Public School District.
I look forward to serving this great community for many years and maintaining the transparency initiative within the business office to regain the trust as we move forward together as a unified community.
