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 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".

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.
