    Thomas McBryde '00 Named The New Superintendent of Hackensack Public Schools

    December 12, 2023

    Thomas McBryde '00, the deputy superintendent of excellence, equity and inclusion for Norwalk Public Schools in Connecticut, will be the next Hackensack schools superintendent.


    McBryde will begin in his new role on Jan. 1, 2024, replacing Superintendent Robert Sanchez, who is retiring at the end of the year.

    “Our goal is to make sure that every child, no matter who you are, has the opportunity and access to receive the highest-quality education, and that is my responsibility, that is our responsibility," McBryde said after he was appointed. “Thank you all for your confidence in me, and I look forward to getting started in January.”

    He grew up in Elizabeth in what he described as “humble beginnings.” But he had parents and teachers who believed in him.

    “They valued education. It transformed my life,” he said.

    McBryde, who has a bachelor’s degree from Morehouse College, two master’s degrees from Cambridge College and Baruch College and a Ph.D. in educational leadership from Argosy University, had worked in Norwalk since 2021. He previously worked in New York City public schools in Brooklyn and Manhattan as a principal and deputy superintendent, after beginning his career in education through the Teach for America program after graduating college.
