Join us in partnership as we kick off a new school year and prepare all students to be "Future-Ready". With a shared vision developed with YOU - our community - we are focused on seven core competencies representing our Profile of a Nyack Graduate: Critical Thinking, Creativity, Collaboration, Communication, Compassion, Cultural Competence, Content Mastery.
"In our schools, we are committed to the belief that all students possess great natural abilities. At the most fundamental level, the focus on education has to be on creating conditions in which students will want and be able to learn. When children are encouraged to be curious and explore, the learning process opens up to new possibilities." - James Montesano, Superintendent of Schools
Together, we are building bridges for today's students to cross into tomorrow's world with equity, innovation and optimism.
ATHLETIC FIELD UPDATE: Please view the attached Q&A
To keep our community informed regarding the status of our athletic fields, the District has put together an update with Q&A. This will also be posted via Peachjar for District families.
The mission of the Business Office is to make sure that the educational program has the resources to provide a well-rounded educational experience to all students in the Nyack Union Free School District. We want each student to achieve their best and continue to strive toward their own individual goals. To make sure the educational process functions without interruption involves developing a fiscally prudent budget so we can order supplies and materials as needed, pay invoices in a timely manner, process payroll on schedule, provide safe and efficient transportation, maintain the buildings and grounds in a manner conducive to the educational program, continuously improve our health and safety program, and serve warm, nutritious meals daily. Simultaneously, we must meet numerous regulatory timelines and prepare reports that are clear and accurate. By keeping the finances in good order, the primary focus of the District remains on the educational program, rather than fiscal concerns.
