  • HS Community Service Hours: 4/30/21

    We wanted to take this opportunity to reach out regarding the school’s program requirement for community service. Generally, Rye High School requires 60 hours of community service for all students prior to graduation. Given the challenges students may have faced in securing these hours due to Covid restrictions, we have opted to reduce the requirement by 15 hours per year for that time period.

  • RCSD Community Update: 4/23/21

    On April 12, the NYSED Board of Regents (the governing board of NYS schools), launched an initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion across all NYS schools. They created a draft framework of guidance for all schools to work towards called The NYS Board of Regents Framework on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in New York. The guidance recognizes that there is no single answer that will solve society’s pervasive problems. It further explains that NYSED and NYS Schools will be part of a holistic and inclusive solution to racism and bigotry. With an expectation and charge that local school districts will begin the important work of creating sustainable change that will create learning communities that are more diverse, equitable and inclusive, this is the strongest challenge yet that the Board of Regents has given to schools.
