Superintendent and student

Hello, friends! The 2019-2020 Hancock Central School District Budget passed by a very comfortable margin, and I would like to personally thank those community members who voted. The HCSD Board of Education and our administrative team have worked very hard to draft a responsible spending plan for our voters. Thanks again for your ongoing support!

Our District Facilities Planning Team is working hard through the design and development phases of our capital-project planning process. HCS representatives have been meeting with our architecture and construction management team to fine tune the anticipated building renovations, which we hope to advance to a public referendum in the fall of 2019. I will keep the community updated as this planning process moves forward.

Publication of the Wildcat News would not be possible were it not for articles and photos submitted by our staff members and administrators. Our editor and primary author, Dean Russin, is a very gifted and loyal contributor to this publication.

Congratulations and best wishes to the HCS Class of 2019! You’ll find several stories and photos on the Class of 2019 in this edition of the Wildcat News, and there will be plenty more in the yearbook. Tish Drumm has been working diligently on this extensive collection of memories from the 2018-2019 academic year, which will be available soon.

Lastly, please join me in congratulating Chris Casta, Deb Charles, Deb Dunlap, Clarence Wahl and Monica Whitt on their outstanding careers at HCS. All will or already have retired from service to the District this year. We’ll celebrate them in the next edition of the Wildcat News, which will be out in July or August. In the meantime, have a great summer!

Respectfully,
Terrance P. Dougherty, Ph.D.
