Superintendent’s Page

Dear RCSD Families and Community Members:

As I prepare to leave RCSD to begin my retirement, let me begin by stating how honored I have been to serve our district and community for the past 22 years as Principal of Van Rensselaer Elementary as well as your Superintendent. It has been my privilege to serve the families and the students of our district.

I always felt that RCSD was my home away from home having been surrounded by dedicated and supported faculty, staff, family members, and community, Together we recognized the importance of a quality education for our students. The School District and the community has a great deal to be proud of.

I am confident that I will continue to hear about all the great successes for the student of RCSD. Thank you for your support. I wish only the best for Rensselaer City School District.


With Sincere Gratitude,

Mrs. Shields
