Superintendent's Welcome

Welcome to the Rondout Valley Central School District. The beauty of rural living abounds throughout the towns served by the District located just 90 miles north of NYC in the center of Ulster County.

Our district is a regional leader in farm-to-school collaborations has developed award winning STEM initiatives and our award winning music and art programs are supported by nationally and internationally talented musicians, artisans, and craftspeople.
