Welcome to the Communications and Public Relations Department

"The basic building block of good communications is the feeling that every human being is unique and of value"  - Anonymous

The Nyack School District's Public Relations and Information Office has a comprehensive Communications Plan to keep our community informed, engaged and invested. Priority is placed on strengthening community relationships, celebrating daily accomplishments of our students and supporting our vision:

"Building Bridges for today's students to cross into tomorrow's world with Equity, Innovation and Optimism".   

Communications & Public Relations Goals

We are committed to providing public information that is clear and timely.

We encourage authentic dialogue and invite your comments, questions and concerns via "Let's Talk".

We are always listening for innovative ways to optimize outreach and engage our school community.

We proudly promote daily success stories featuring experiences, events and opportunities that embed our Core Elements of Education.

  • In celebration of Black History, we are committed to “go beyond trauma & struggle to examine the liberation, civic engagement, creativity...

    ... and intersecting identities of black people during Black History Month.” Read more about Teaching the Complete History, from Teaching Tolerance website. 

    Analyzing and celebrating Black American history helps students think critically about present-day social issues and Why We Need Black History Month.  (also from Teaching Tolerance website)

    In Nyack Public Schools, we are invested in building the leadership capacity, trust, and common analysis to make the systemic changes required if we are to achieve racial equity. Recognizing we have far to go, we reach towards becoming a truly anti-racist multi-cultural educational institution in the daily work of undoing racism.

    Systems don’t change because we identify them; they change because we disrupt them”
