Welcome to the Communications and Public Relations Department

The Nyack School District's Public Relations and Information Office has developed 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".
