The Hudson City School District Board of Education meets tomorrow, Tuesday, December 21, at 6:00 p.m., in the Jr./Sr. High School Cafeteria. Despite rising COVID numbers, it is an in-person meeting, with no opportunity to attend the meeting virtually.
At the meeting, the board was supposed to meet prospective candidates for the seat on the board left vacant by the resignation of board president Carrie Otty. The deadline for expressing interest in serving on the board was December 15, and it seems no one expressed interest.
Last Thursday, the Columbia Paper published Jeanette Wolfberg's report on the previous meeting of HCSD Board of Education, which took place on December 7: "Pandemic takes toll on school behavior." The following is the lede from that article:
Reports of injury, body piercing, racial provocation, absenteeism, staffing shortages, sanitation shortfalls and other challenges emerged from accounts described at the Hudson City School District (HCSD) Board of Education meeting December 7.
HCSD superintendent Maria Suttmeier's retirement begins in eleven days, on December 31, and there is yet no word that a new superintendent has been chosen or hired.
