District History

The Niskayuna Central School District was formed in 1953 when area residents overwhelmingly voted in favor of centralizing five area districts. The community moved quickly to address the facilities and programming needs of the new school district, including building a comprehensive high school. Learn more about our history

Strategic Plan

The district’s strategic plan contains three major areas of focus: Curriculum & Programs, Student Culture & Environment, and Partnerships. Established in 2016, the plan has resulted in a series of instructional initiatives and the formation of two community advisory groups that are shaping the future of our schools. Learn more about our strategic plan

Budget & Finance

District leaders work to make the most effective use of resources to benefit students, to develop and manage the budget in a responsible and transparent manner, and to be accountable to taxpayers. Learn more about the school budget

The district is required by state and federal law to provide a series of policy notifications each year. Information about many of the policies is also mailed to families in August and available in the main offices of each school.
