CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. -- Residents in the Chappaqua Central School District have multiple chances this week to weigh in on the search for a new schools superintendent.
Two public forums are scheduled for this week, according to the Chappaqua PTA, which is holding them. The first is on Wednesday morning at 9:30 a.m., at Douglas G. Grafflin Elementary School. The second is on Thursday at 7:30 p.m. and will be held at Robert E. Bell Middle School.
The district has also retained Hazard, Young, Attea & Associates to conduct the superintendent search. The firm has posted an online survey for community members, which can be found here.
The district is searching for a new top administrator after Lyn McKay retired in early January. However McKay's departure was announced by the school board on Halloween, and she promptly relinquished her duties for the duration of her employment.
Although no reason was given for McKay's departure, it came following calls from community members for her resignation over her handling of a sex-abuse scandal involving former Horace Greeley High School drama teacher Christopher Schraufnagel.
Daniel McCann, a former Hendrick Hudson schools superintendent, is serving as Chappaqua's interim superintendent.
