Spackenkill Union Free School District
The Spackenkill Union Free School District was chartered by the New York State Legislature in 1865 and is one of the few remaining union free school districts within the state. The uniqueness of remaining independent without centralization with other districts has helped Spackenkill remain a small and closely knit school district. It is their mission to provide all students and staff with a safe, healthy, and caring environment. They promote an inclusive environment that respects all students, staff, and families.
The Spackenkill community maintains a core value of respect for one another and continually strives to translate their core values into specific, positive practices and behaviors. It is their community and schools working together to make the best decisions for their children, and the Spackenkill Union Free School District is committed to responding to their needs by providing school environments that promote and protect children’s health, well-being and ability to learn.
As a way of saying "thank you" to the many Spackenkill Union Free School District employees who reside in our community, Marist College is offering special tuition pricing for all employees and their immediate adult family members.
