Superintendents' Welcome

Welcome to the Port Jervis City School District!

Dear Parents and Community Members:

As the 2018-2019 school year begins, our Central Administration team wanted to reach out to you and share our vision for the Port Jervis School District.

Mr. Mike Rydell is our new Superintendent of Schools. Mr. Rydell has been with the district one year as the Assistant Superintendent for Instruction. He has implemented many hands-on and project-based learning STEAM/STREAM activities in the classroom as well as in the summer school program, and in the new After School Enrichment program. Mr. Rydell will continue to develop a strong collaboration with all members of the learning community to improve the educational opportunities for our students as well as the well-being and safety of our entire learning community.

Mr. Nick Pantaleone came on board over the summer as the new Assistant Superintendent for Instruction. Mr. Pantaleone has already met with the district Administration team as well as the entire district staff to share his areas of focus for curriculum and instruction. He is looking forward to working side by side with teachers and staff to implement programs that best meet the needs of our students within the Port Jervis Learning Community.
