The Cape Henlopen Educational Foundation has elected Peter E. Carter to a three-year term on its board of directors.

Carter has served as the Essex County superintendent of schools for the New Jersey Department of Education, superintendent of schools for the Irvington Board of Education in Irvington, N.J., and superintendent of schools for the Ringwood Board of Education in Ringwood, N.J. Most recently, he served as the interim superintendent of schools for the Plainfield Board of Education in Plainfield, N.J., and interim superintendent of schools for the Hoboken Board of Education in Hoboken, N.J.

Carter retired to Delaware in 2005, but he still stays active in education, assisting his former colleagues as they develop their reopening plans and also serving as an expert witness in litigation involving education.

He received a bachelor’s degree in classical languages from Fordham University and a master’s degree in educational administration from Hofstra University. Carter also has taught at Ramapo College of New Jersey, Fairleigh Dickinson University and Wilmington University.

“Peter will make a great addition to our board,” said CHEF President Rick Grier-Reynolds. “He understands the many ways that a foundation like CHEF, having worked with them in New Jersey, can support the school district’s teachers and students.”

CHEF has been a nonprofit strategic partner of the Cape Henlopen School District since 2007.
