Gundersen responded by saying no student has to change in the locker rooms if they are uncomfortable. The student merely has to bring their discomfort to the administration and a proper changing room will be found for them. Further, if students are really uncomfortable, a different gym period can be given, said Gundersen.

"We believe we have to accommodate everyone," he said.

The Pascack Valley Regional High School District will collect its virtual school day data by the end of the month, according to Superintendent Erik Gundersen.
"We have more questions now than we've ever had about how effective it has been and some of the issues that we've faced," said Gundersen at the district's Feb. 8 board of education meeting.
...
"That's why we did this on a scheduled set of two days," said Gundersen.

"I think it's important to experiment for us," said Gundersen, "and I'm also very excited to see how Park Ridge faired today during their experiment."

Superintendent Erik Gundersen called the virtual days "innovative" and "progressive" the night of the first virtual school day - Feb. 2 - before the Hillsdale Mayor and Council where he was a guest presenter on the status of the regional school district.
"Hopefully someday the statue will change," he told the governing body.
The February virtual school days were two of three the district has hosted. The first - held on Feb. 13, 2014 - was held during a major snow storm.
"Two years ago, we prepared 36 hours before the snow storm," said Gundersen.
...
At press time, the district had yet to analyze its data on the virtual school day; however, Gundersen took to Twitter to share his enthusiasm.
"Thank you to parents, students and staff for making the virtual day a success," he tweeted, alongside a comedic graphic created by the Pascack Hills PFA entitled "Five Fun Ways To Enhance Your Child's Virtual School Day." Add Comment

A capital project review of Pascack Valley High School's proposed additional parking and circulation project will be heard by the Hillsdale Planning Board on Thursday, March 10, confirmed Pascack Valley Regional High School District Superintendent Erik Gundersen.
...
The district plans to demolish the old tennis courts to make way for additional parking and a special emergency only lane while creating "a buffer zone," as described by Gundersen, between the school building and vehicular traffic.
"It's been a major safety concern for quite some time," said Gundersen of the school building's extreme closeness to the driveway.
While no accidents have occurred to date, Gundersen said it was only a matter of time.
The buffer zone, between the school building and driveway, will include a green area and a sidewalk, he said.
While the project will only bring on an additional 30 parking spots, Gundersen said, "any additional parking spots are highly needed."
Demolition will hopefully begin in the spring during spring break, said Gundersen, with the majority of the project being completed over the summer.
...
The virtual school days have been planned and will not be held on inclement weather days, according to Superintendent Erik Gundersen.
"We're pushing on with this experiment," said Gundersen.

The Pascack Valley Regional Board of Education has appointed Erik Gundersen as superintendent of schools for the next five years.
The appointment, made at the board's Jan. 25 special meeting, is effective from July 1 to June 30, 2021.
Gundersen has been serving as the district's superintendent since 2011 when he replaced then-Interim Superintendent Robert McGuire, who filled the void left by the retirement of then-Superintendent Benedict Tantillo in June 2010. According to the terms of his agreement, Gundersen will have an annual salary of $167,500 with health benefits.
"Thank you to the board for approving my contract for the next five years," said Gundersen during the public meeting. "The district is a part of me, and I look forward to the next five years ahead."
Gundersen is no stranger to the district. He started in the district in 1994 as a physics teacher at Pascack Valley High School. In 2002, he was appointed supervisor of Science and Technology Education. A short seven years later, Gundersen was named the district's director of Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment.
During his time at Pascack Valley Regional, Gundersen has been influential in introducing a robotics team and a student laptop program. Most recently, he has led the district in instituting the "Pascack Period," a weekly 88-minute period where students can study, work out or sign up for non-traditional classes, doing away with traditional midterms and hosting virtual school days.
Under his leadership, Pascack Valley Regional High School District has been selected to be a member of the Digital Promise's "League of Innovative Schools" and has been awarded the Apple's "Schools of Distinction" award for six consecutive years, among other things.
Gundersen has a bachelor's degree in physics teacher education from the University of Delaware, a master's degree in educational technology from New Jersey City University and an educational specialist degree in educational administration from Seton Hall University. Add Comment

"No one wants to be the person who takes away all snow days for kids - that's a sense of innocence and joy - but when you are bombarded with a winter like we had a year or two ago, it would be nice to be able to keep your school calendar intact," Pascack Valley Regional High School District Superintendent Erik Gundersen said.

...
Gundersen said the decision to have two split days was made after reviewing student and teacher feedback from the previous virtual day in 2014. Students expressed an overload of assignments, he said.
"We had many students that said, 'I did more work on the virtual day than I ever had on a regular day,'" Gundersen said.
...
"We want to see if we can engage in blended curriculum in the future - whether it's a course or two, or perhaps, as a region of schools, offering courses we typically couldn't offer in just one small school," Gundersen said.
