The Ichabod Crane Board of Education and the District’s administrative team collaborated in a professional and productive goal setting process during two sessions facilitated by Jamie McPherson of the New York State School Boards Association. The result is ‘Rider Goals 2021,’ five overarching goals that will be
in effect from 2018 through 2021.

";Rider Goals 2021’ takes the place of the previous Strategic Plan and will continue to move the District toward a specific pathway that will guide us in budgeting, staffing and curriculum development to reach our goals,” said Superintendent of Schools Michael Vanyo.
