Erik Gundersen, superintendent of Pascack Valley Regional High School District, said that high-achieving students in his district's two high schools had skipped the tests to instead prepare for the SATs and Advanced Placement tests. "In their mind, those tests are high stakes and do have meaning," Gundersen said about the college entrance exams.
But an administrator in another high-performing district said the results didn't surprise him and that he expected that students would struggle in the first year of the test.

The Pascack Valley Regional Board of Education plans to appoint Erik Gundersen, the district's present director of Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment, as superintendent of schools next month.
...
Gundersen, who's worked in the school district for the past 16 years, was selected based upon "his qualities and attributes," Steinfeld said.
...
Gundersen, who is 39 years old, started out 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. Seven years later, Gundersen was made the district's director of Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment.
Another quality the board liked about Gundersen was "his understanding of the district's technology needs," Steinfeld said.
...
During his time at Pascack Valley Regional, Gundersen has helped introduce a robotics team program, a molecular genetics research program and a student laptop program. Most recently, he was involved in organizing and hosting a nationally recognized technology visit to the district.
"This is a place I've been in since I began my educational career and as I've moved from position to position, I've enjoyed the more global impact I've had on the educational experience for students. I'm really looking forward to having a significant voice and taking a great district and keeping it on the cutting edge," Gundersen said on Friday, adding that he's very excited to take on his new role.
He continued, "My vision is really to just continue to work with the faculty, students and community.
...
Gundersen has a bachelor's degree in physics 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 leadership from Seton Hall University. He is presently completing his doctoral work in educational leadership, management and policy at Seton Hall University.

"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.

Erik Gundersen, the superintendent of the Pascack Valley Regional High School District, said members of the school community have described the old logo to him as offensive and inappropriate, prompting his decision to phase it out.
"Depending on who you are communicating with, they may find it offensive," Gundersen said.
...
While Gundersen is "administratively decreasing the emphasis" of the old logo on stationery, business cards and other items on which it appears, he said there has been no discussion of changing the school's nickname for its sports teams, the Indians. A name change, he said, would require a vote by school board.
"No one has come to any board meeting to talk about" the team name, he said.
