Welcome message from New Superintendent Mr. Rory McCourt

Dear Members of the Ridgefield Community:

It is a great honor and privilege to join the Ridgefield School District as your next Superintendent of Schools!  I look forward to working together with the Board of Education, faculty, staff, parents, and community members to ensure we continue to provide our students with the world-class education they deserve.

For the past six years I have served as the Superintendent of Schools for the River Vale School District in River Vale, N.J.  Prior to this, I served as the Interim Superintendent of Schools for the Westwood Regional School District, and was also the district’s Director of Curriculum, as well as a principal.  I’m now very excited to begin this new journey with all of you in Ridgefield.

I had the opportunity in June to meet our administrative team, tour our schools, and meet many of our teachers, staff members, and students and I’m looking forward to the beginning of the school-year.  

 I hope everyone has a wonderful summer and thank you to the entire Ridgefield community for the warm welcome I have received; I certainly appreciate it.




Rory McCourt,

Superintendent of Schools
