RCSD Athletic Director Announcement

April 3, 2020

Dear RCSD Community,

Michael Arias, the District’s Director of Health, Physical Education, and Athletics has accepted a position as Director of Athletics in the Tarrytowns, effective this coming July.  Attached, please find a letter he shared with his colleagues. We thank him for his four years of service here in Rye, and wish him all the best in his new endeavor. Mike helped lead some excellent initiatives in physical education and athletics and we appreciate all that he has accomplished.

The District will undertake a comprehensive search process to find the next Director of Athletics beginning later in April, with the goal of hiring a new Director in the spring in order for him/her to join the District over the summer. As a first step, the District will post the position and advertise nationally in order to identify a strong candidate pool.  The Administration will also form a search committee comprised of administrators as well as faculty, coaches, students, and parents. We will share more details once the search process begins in earnest.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.


Dr. Eric Byrne
