Kasun will be on hand to meet with families, staff and community members from 6-7 p.m. in the high school commons. He is expected to take the helm of the school district on Sept. 1. The Board of Education hired Kasun for the district’s top administrative post during a special meeting on Aug. 8.

Kasun will succeed Crystal Edwards, who retired in March. Andrew Zuckerman, the school district’s director of instructional services, served as acting superintendent during the search for a permanent superintendent.

In Lawrence Township, Kasun was chosen from among a field of 41 applicants. He is presently serving as the superintendent in the Freehold Township K-8 School District in Monmouth County. Kasun has been Freehold Township’s superintendent for seven years.

Kasun previously served as the superintendent of the Colts Neck K-8 School District, and as the assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction in the Summit School District. He began his career in education as an elementary school teacher 23 years ago. He was a principal in the South Orange-Maplewood and Millburn school districts.

Over the years, Kasun has received numerous honors and recognition professionally, including being chosen as the 2017 Superintendent of the Year by the New Jersey Association of School Administrators.
