As Superintendent, I encourage all residents to attend the Board of Education meeting on Monday, March 11, 2024 at Ramapo High School to learn the facts about the proposed Supervisor restructure. The public session is anticipated to begin at 8:00 p.m. Please note the official agenda has been posted on the district website.

The RIH Supervisor Association collaboratively engaged in the restructuring process. The Supervisor Association supports the restructure. Contrary to assumption, the restructure is intended to strengthen our district's services and student supports, not eliminate them. Centralized leadership allows us to better align resources, exchange best practices, and customize projects to our student body's needs. This restructure improves our students' academic, social, and emotional well-being by creating a more integrated and supportive learning environment. We respectfully request the community's support for the Supervisors Association.

Given the misinformation spreading on social media and within our community, it is critical that we work together as a school community to promote the RIH School District's goals and values.

All my best, 

Dr. James Baker
