I would like to share Board President Ron Hansen’s statement from the May 15, 2018 Board Meeting.
Now that we have an official notification of Dr. McNeill's intent to retire, we can proceed to the next steps to find the best candidate to lead the Nanuet School District.
I would first point out:
On October 24, 2017 a contract was approved for Dr. McNeill that upon his official filing for retirement, that instead of serving his current contract out to June 2022, that the 2018-19 school year will be his final year at an annual rate of pay of $210,000.
This early notice saves the district taxpayers $110,000 in the 2018-19 Budget.
This enabled the Board to research and decide on using a search firm and in addition had the benefit of starting to get the word out to those interested, providing sufficient time to plan.
On March 6, 2018, the Board contracted with Rockland BOCES for an amount not to exceed $19,000 to complete the search. Neighboring districts have paid upwards of $100,000 to search firms.
Dr. McNeill's early announcement also gave an opportunity for candidates in the region to start assembling credentials and prospective references before the process begins.
