Sam Raudins Is reporting for Columbia-Greene Media Hudson school district officials are asking the public for input to help with the board of education's search for a new superintendent. District residents are being asked to complete the board's community survey by September 3. The district has approximately 1,700 students enrolled in kindergarten through 12th grade and employs 600 people. “The survey results will help the board develop criteria for the next superintendent and questions to be asked during interviews,” according to a statement posted at the district website. The survey asks respondents to rate what type of work experience would be most valuable in a new superintendent as well as the skills a successful candidate should possess. Current Superintendent Maria L. Suttmeier tendered her resignation in June, making it effective December 31. Suttmeier has been employed by the district for 23 years, 10 of those years as superintendent. The community survey can be found at the district website, HudsonCSD [dot] org.
