Spotlight on Our District

From the Superintendent

“We have a highly moral and very serious responsibility to prepare our young people for life after their school years in Nyack.  If we accept that the world is rapidly changing: what type of education do our students need?"

In keeping with our District mission and incorporating the results from our  Community Priorities Survey Results and Analysis (2016)  we have established "Core Elements of Education" that we believe are necessary competencies that all students should embody to become global citizens with true success:  Critical Thinking, Creativity, Collaboration, Communication, Compassion, Core Mastery, Cultural Awareness.  

Join Us in the 2017-18 school year with a shared vision for equity, innovation and optimism.  Please peruse our sites and tell us what you think, using Let's Talk!
