    Dear Ramsey Community:


    First I would like to thank the entire Ramsey community for its continued support of our schools. Due to your long history of commitment to education and your children, the Ramsey School District has developed a well-deserved and respected reputation, but we are not content to rest on either past or present laurels. We have been developing and implementing a very progressive, well-rounded curriculum and teaching plan that puts student learning at the center to prepare them for their future.  All of this could not be done without your financial support.  


    Putting together a school budget is always a very difficult task.  We began the process in November and have worked since then to not only develop a budget that maintained current program, but also one that will keep moving the Ramsey School District forward, all while being fully aware  that our community unfairly bears the vast majority of the fiscal responsibility of the budget.


    The annual election for school board candidates will be held on November 2, 2021.  Those who are interested in a seat on the Ramsey Board of Education must file a petition with the Bergen County Office in Hackensack.  The last date to file School Board Petitions for the November General Election at the Bergen County's Clerk's Office is July 26, 2021. 


    If you have any questions on either the voter registration process, or the vote-by-mail  process, please do not hesitate to call.




    Matthew J. Murphy, Ed. D.
    Superintendent of Schools
