YORKTOWN, N.Y. – The Yorktown Central School District Board of Education is seeking candidates to replace Christine Montero, who resigned from the school board last week to avoid any potential conflict of interest with the newly hired superintendent of schools, Dr. Ronald Hattar, who is also her brother.

Montero, who was appointed to the school board in 2011 and re-elected twice after that, announced her intention to resign at the June 5 school board meeting. The school board said she was not involved in the superintendent selection process.

One year remained on Montero's term, which will be filled by school board appointment. That person will serve until May 15, 2018, when an election for a full three-year term will be held.
