Letter: Haldane Board Begins Search

Deadline Nov. 13 for candidates to replace Peter Henderson

The Haldane Board of Education will be accepting letters of interest along with a personal bio for the Trustee seat of Peter Henderson. The Board will appoint a new member who will serve from November 20 through to the next District election on May 17, 2016. The Board prefers a candidate with financial expertise, specifically in the areas of school/government, and who will seek re-election in 2016.

Letters should be addressed to Ms. Julia Famularo, District Clerk, Haldane Central School District, 15 Craigside Drive, Cold Spring, NY 10516 and received by 5 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 13.  For details on qualifications or requirements, please refer to the Haldane District site at haldaneschool.org.

School board service is a complicated endeavor that requires objectivity, big-picture thinking, compassion, and perhaps, most of all, a desire to be a part of the solution. It is not the thankless job that it is sometimes labeled. The rewards truly do outweigh the frustrations. School board members have the privilege of working side-by-side with our talented administrators, staff, students, and community members to help make our school the best it can be for our children today and tomorrow. What could be more fulfilling than that?

I welcome the opportunity to share more about what it means to be a school board member. Please reach out to me at [email protected] if you are interested in learning more.

Jennifer Daly, President
Haldane Board of Education
