Ridgefield Public Schools
Our shared purpose is to provide highly engaging, relevant and personalized learning
for ALL members of the community

Welcome to Our district

There's nothing we enjoy more than sharing the good news about our wonderful students and staff members. And we have a lot of great things to share! Read all about student and faculty awards and accomplishments, past happenings, upcoming events, and so much more.

Superintendent Search

The Ridgefield Board of Education, functioning as the Executive Search Committee, seeks an outstanding educational leader for the position of Superintendent of Schools and invites qualified and interested candidates to apply. Cooperative Educational Services Executive Searches will facilitate the search on behalf of the Board of Education. The Search Committee expects the new superintendent to assume full responsibilities of the superintendency on or before March 1, 2019. Follow the RPS Superintendent Search Process online, and see our invitation to apply for Superintendent of Schools for more information.

In Search of a Communications Coordinator

School Webmasters is seeking a local community member, who has a love of education and a respect for educators, to serve as the new Communications Coordinator for Ridgefield Public Schools. 

Ridgefield Public Schools has partnered with School Webmasters to provide our community with current, meaningful communications. Activities, events, special guest speakers, awards, and classroom learning—these are things parents long to hear about and the stories our schools love to share. But coordinating those communications takes time! That’s where the Communications Coordinator comes in. He or she will work to make sure parents don’t miss out on the great things happening in our district. 

For more information, please view our press release in its entirety.

District Presentations to the BOE

Each month our district leaders make presentations on a wide variety of topics to the Board of Education to keep both board members and the general public informed of the work of our district staff, building leaders, teachers, and students. Although all BOE meeting documents can be found on our dedicated BOE page, for your convenience we will provide quick links here to the most recent presentations.

Miller's Minutes

At each Board of Education meeting, Dr. Robert Miller, the Director of Technology and Operations Development, provides live updates of key announcements and happenings via our RPS Twitter account. We have logged those tweets and present them here to you as another way for you to stay informed of the work of the district and the BOE. These are not the official minutes of our BOE meetings, as those need to be voted on by the board, and are posted on our BOE page. We thought you would appreciate the brevity and timeliness that this medium offers. So if you missed the BOE meeting, or want a quick summary, then read Miller's Minutes.
