The Middle States Association Commissions on Elementary and Secondary Schools (MSA-CESS) proudly announces the appointment of William Fleming, M.Ed., as a commissioner.
Fleming is a principal in the Bergenfield Public Schools in Bergenfield, N.J., and is one of 11 new commissioners.
“Middle States commissioners serve an important role in helping to improve the quality of education in the United States and around the world,” said MSA-CESS Interim President Henry Cram, Ed.D. “We are grateful to William for his commitment to Middle States and for volunteering his expertise to helping schools grow and improve through accreditation.”
In addition to serving as Principal, Fleming also serves as the Director of the Interdistrict Public School Choice Program. He is also a mentor with the New Jersey Leaders2Leaders program offered by the New Jersey Principals and Supervisors Association and the Foundation for Educational Administration.
Fleming earned his Master of Education from Arizona State University: Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College and is currently pursuing his Doctor of Education at Seton Hall University.
“I am honored to join Middle States as a commissioner,” said Fleming, who lives in Montclair, N.J. “The Middle States accreditation process has helped our district set system-wide goals and plan strategically so that we can prepare students with 21st century skills that will equip them for future success and enable them to become lifelong learners.”
Middle States commissioners meet twice annually to review accreditation recommendations and the organization’s finances, policies and strategic plan.
