New Jersey superintendent caught defecating on rival school's football field

New Jersey police have charged Kenilworth Public Schools Superintendent Thomas Tramaglini with relieving himself in public early Monday morning after school officials reported finding "daily" deposits of excrement by an athletic field.

Track coaches and staff at Holmdel High School told the district's resource officer that they found human feces on or near the football field and track daily, Holmdel police said in a statement Thursday.

The school's staff began monitoring the area and identified Tramaglini, who lives several miles away from the school, as the person leaving feces on the property.

The Kenilworth School Board issued a statement after learning about the matter.

The United States ran a $20.5 billion surplus in the trade of services such as education and banking. Economists predicted the March figure would narrow to C$2.25 billion.

Tramaglini's school district said the superintendent was given a paid leave of absence. Paid leave is required by law unless an employee faces an indictment or tenure charges.

"The Board of Education wants to assure faculty and staff, students and parents, that the district will continue its responsibilities without interruption", assured the school board. He is due in municipal court in Holmdel at 8:15 a.m. Monday to answer the charges.

According to, Tramaglini has been the Kenilworth superintendent since 2015, and had previously worked as chief academic officer in Keansburg and held positions in Plumsted and Freehold Borough.

A supintendent at a New Jersey school district was arrested this week for allegedly pooping repeatedly on the football field of a school in another district.
