Interim Superintendent of Schools
Seeking a seasoned, respected, and proven leader to guide the District on an interim basis, the Washington Township Board of Education confidently found a capable leader in Jack McGee, a lifelong educator with deep roots in the community and far-reaching impact in the Washington Township Public Schools.
The District’s former Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction, Mr. McGee retired from the Washington Township Schools in December 2021 following a 42-year career here, 32 of those years in an administrative capacity. During those four decades, he assumed nearly every role, rising in the ranks from a teacher and coach to stints as assistant principal, high school principal, director of secondary education, and as interim assistant superintendent for two years, before his permanent appointment to that post in January 2016.
From his assistant superintendent’s post, Mr. McGee was an integral contributor to multiple District initiatives, including redistricting, full-day kindergarten, a 1:1 laptop computer deployment for grades 3-12, and distribution of iPads for grades K-2. He was part of an administrative team that developed a strategic plan to continue the District’s upward trajectory. This educational blueprint will guide the District through future budgets and develop multiple new programs, with a focus on social and emotional learning, mindfulness, equity, and curriculum-based global learning to help best prepare students for life in the 21st century. Additionally, Mr. McGee assisted in the creation of an Academy model at Washington Township High School that includes academic cohorts focusing on Business Administration & Management, Early Childhood Education, Engineering (STEM), Marketing & Business Leadership, TV Production and Broadcast Journalism, and Allied Health.
Mr. McGee started his education career as a physical education teacher at Washington Township Middle School from 1979-85. He served as Middle School Department Supervisor from 1985-89 before being named Assistant Principal at Washington Township High School in March 1989. Mr. McGee was elevated to Executive Assistant Principal of the WTHS 9/10 wing in 1997, and he became WTHS Principal in 1999. After three years in that role, McGee was tabbed the District’s Director of Secondary Education, where he served from 2002-14. In August 2014, he assumed the position of Interim Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction.
Mr. McGee earned a bachelor’s degree in Health and Physical Education from Glassboro State College. He also received his Master of Arts Degree in Education Administration, Health and Physical Education from Glassboro State. In addition to his teacher certification, he owns school administrator, principal, and supervisor certificates from the New Jersey Department of Education.
Past President of the Washington Township Principals’ Association, Washington Township Rotary, and the Washington Township High School Sports Hall of Fame’s Executive Committee, he also is the former Commissioner and Assistant Commissioner of Olympic Conference athletics.
Mr. McGee and his wife, Roxanne, a former member of the Washington Township Education Foundation, recently relocated to Wildwood, N.J., where they enjoy time with their sons, Brandon and Dan, and their extended family.
The District has launched a national search for a permanent superintendent and has enlisted Hazard, Young, Attea & Associates to assist in the process.
