CORTLANDT, N.Y. - The search continues for Hendrick Hudson School District after the mid-contract retirement of Superintendent Daniel McCann in June.

School district officials say the search is being conducted for the district by Putnam-Northern Westchester BOCES, and community meetings to "facilitate obtaining input" have been scheduled this week.

The meetings begin at 1 p.m. Tuesday at Buchanan Village Hall. School district officials said they're hoping to receive input from Buchanan senior citizens at the first meeting.

“We look forward to hearing what’s important to the members of our community, our school district employees, students and parents. But we also want to hear from our seniors who have so much to offer," said Board of Education president Mary-Pat Briggi.

Board of Education members won't be present during the four community meetings scheduled this week. Instead, a BOCES representative will conduct the meetings and report back to the board, according to a press release from the district.

Three more meetings are scheduled. The second and third are Wednesday in the Hendrick Hudson High School library, first for "Parents, PTA and HHCEF" members at 6:30 p.m., then for the "community" at 7:30 p.m. The fourth meeting is at 10 a.m. Thursday at Verplanck's Schoolhouse, where the board expects "Cortlandt and Verplanck senior citizens."

Currently, Brian Monahan, former Rockland School District Superintendent, is serving as Interim superintendent for the district.
