How Does School Choice Work?
Little Red School House currently houses Kindergarten and First Grade. Students are provided their 2-12 education through agreements between our Board of Education and the Boards of Education of other Districts. Annual tuition agreements are on a year by year basis. Currently, North Greenbush has tuition agreements with the following Districts; Averill Park School District Grades 2-12, Wynantskill Union Free School District Grades 2-8 and Troy City School District Grades 6-12. East Greenbush School District still only remains an option for siblings of current East Greenbush Students. Parents choose a School District not a School within the district.
