A Time of Change at HCSD

Maria Suttmeier will be retiring as superintendent of the Hudson City School District at the end of this year. Since Veterans Day, the Board of Education has been holding special meetings, in executive session, to review applications and interview applicants for the job. The meetings continue in December. On Thursday, December 2, the board will discuss the interviews, in executive session, and on Monday, December 6, the board will interview the finalists, also in executive session.

Meanwhile, there is an opening on the HCSD Board of Education. It was recently announced that Carrie Otty, who has been president of the Board of Education since 2011, is also resigning. This is the notice that appears on the HCSD website:
The Hudson City School District Board of Education is seeking candidates to fill a vacant seat after Carrie Otty announced her resignation for personal reasons prior to the end of her term. The temporary appointment will begin on January 19, 2022, and expire on May 17, 2022.*
Anyone interested in serving the school district as an interim Board member should send a letter of interest to districtclerk@hudsoncsd.org by Wednesday, December 15, 2021. Candidates must be at least 18 years old and reside within the Hudson City School District.
Interested candidates should plan to attend the Board of Education meeting on Tuesday, December 21, 2021, at 6 p.m., in the HHS Library so that the Board can meet the candidates before deciding on an appointment. Learn more about what prospective school board members should know.   
Since Ms. Otty is currently serving as the Board president, the Board will nominate and vote on a new president in the coming weeks.
* The remainder of Ms. Otty's term, which runs through June 30, 2023, will be included on the May 2022 ballot. The interim candidate may choose to run for election to serve the remainder of the term, if desired.
