"Spackenkill empowers the representatives of each of the stakeholder groups in our district to work together to improve the effectiveness of our schools and increase student achievement. We believe that by giving stakeholders a voice and working collaboratively, we can accomplish much greater feats than any one of us could individually."
— from the Spackenkill UFSD Shared Decision Making Plan
Spackenkill schools, inspired by a tradition of excellence and a spirit of continuous improvement, are committed to empowering students to succeed in an ever-changing world. All Spackenkill graduates will be lifelong learners who are inspired to pursue their dreams and contribute to the global society. To this end, we expect our students to engage meaningfully in our broader community. Spackenkill student organizations bring the gift of music, art, and service to our hospitals, nursing homes, and community agencies. We invite our community to visit us – through theatrical events, concerts, and sporting events at the high school and middle schools. The community is also invited and encouraged to attend Board of Education meetings.
