Our Mission

The Fallsburg Central School District's educational mission is: to Prepare Today, Succeed Tomorrow, Inspire Excellence, Challenge the World.

The Educational Mission is one of excellence which prevails throughout the many District programs. Excellence is achieved by creating a supportive environment in which children can learn .

The community is invited to be involved in restructuring our educational programs to meet the challenges of the 21st Century. The district promotes community participation through Shared Decision Making, Outreach and Mentorship programs, and the development and implementation of our Comprehensive Education Plan (CEP). Our students are encouraged to understand that all young people are capable of learning and it is important that each one fulfills his or her maximum potential. The District is guided by a Superintendent and Board of Education made up of nine community members elected to three year terms.
