The Duanesburg Central School District strives to keep the avenues of communication open and ensure that all concerns and issues are addressed in the best way possible.

While Board of Education members serve as community representatives, contacting the Board as a first step when an issue arises may not be the most efficient way to resolve it. Most issues can be identified, clarified and addressed more promptly when directed to those most familiar with the situation.

To that end, individuals with questions, concerns, complaints and/or suggestions are encouraged to contact the employee closest to the issue. If the issue is not satisfactorily resolved at this level, the individual may progress through the line of responsibility until the matter is resolved.

Please use the links below to locate directories for phone numbers and email addresses. Please call the central office at (518) 895-2279 with any questions.
