Welcome to the Valley Central School District's website. Whether you're a parent, student, employee or a general member of the community, you will find a wealth of information here.
Valley Central is a school district of over 4200 students and approximately 800 full and part-time staff situated mainly in the Town of Montgomery, New York, but comprising parts of 7 other towns and 3 villages. Four elementary schools, an alternate learning center, one middle school, and one high school make up the District.A 7-member Board of Education provides governance with meetings scheduled approximately twice per month (schedule posted on the Board’s web page). Over the last decade, voters have approved proposed budgets and supported bond votes by large majorities. Although considered a medium-to-large district in the four-county region, Valley Central manages to maintain among the lowest tax rates and per-pupil expenditures in the Mid-Hudson Valley. Nonetheless, Valley Central routinely outperforms similar schools and districts in State assessments of student achievement. Our outstanding teaching, administrative, and support staff are provided ongoing professional development and are fully involved in District initiatives in the areas of writing and literacy, accountability, induction and mentoring.
