  • Nyack Schools Launch a NEW early childhood literacy program to help babies learn and thrive in the first 3 years of life.

    The NYACK BASICS launched on January 8th, 2018.  Over 150 school community leaders, early childhood educators and county service providers joined together in Hilltop Auditorium to kick off this new initiative lead by Superintendent James Montesano and Assistant Superintendent Winsome Gregory. 

    The District welcomed Chancellor Betty Rosa, Regent Judy Johnson and Regent Luis Reyes from the NY State Department of Ed for a tour of the schools.  Founder of The Boston Basics and Harvard Economist Ron Ferguson lead the the day as keynote speaker. The District plans to implement The Nyack Basics and support a community-lead campaign to help ensure that all children read by the third grade.
