Taking steps toward our future
Behind the scenes
The district must extensively plan and prepare before building work can begin. Initial steps were taken during the summer of 2021, including:
The road to renewal
River Vale Public Schools persevered through a pandemic to inform voters about its bond proposal. The referendum was originally planned for September 2020, but New Jersey postponed special elections three times because of COVID safety concerns. The community ultimately voted for the improvements in an election held April 20, 2021.
Timeline for projects
River Vale Public Schools mapped out a preliminary schedule for the district’s largest building projects in two decades. The majority of the work will be done during the summer months. Any construction scheduled during the school year will take student and staff building needs into account.
