Mission Statement
The Rondout Valley High School Parents Association is 
committed to the successful education of all of our students
so they are prepared for career and college.
The mission of the Association is to support and promote
programs and activities that enhance critical thinking and
problem solving, encourage team work, so that our graduates
are prepared with skills and inspired to be stewards and
empathetic leaders in this community and beyond.    
We pledge to be a strong ally to our students, faculty,
administration and community in the creation of this educational 
process, so that we may all have pride in our High School.

Parents Association

We invite all those interested parents and guardians who want to Stay Informed and Make a Difference to join us when we meet every 4th Monday of each month in the high school Welcome Center beginning at 7pm. Our meeting agenda is posted here on our quick link and emailed to our members one week before hand along with our meeting minutes. Our PA is invited to attend an array of meetings throughout the school year (BOE and RV Education Foundation to name a few). We ask our members to attend them when their schedule permits and discuss their findings with our group.
