Frank Alvarez, Ed.D
Interim, Superintendent of Schools

It is an honor to serve the River Vale School District as your Superintendent of Schools, again.  For those of you who don’t know me, I was the superintendent from 1997 to 2003 and have lived in River Vale for the past 27 years.  My children are a product of the River Vale schools and my family has contributed to the life of the community in several ways throughout the years.  I am delighted to be home and for the opportunity to serve in this interim capacity, while the Board initiates it’s search for a permanent replacement. 

During the past several weeks, I have been meeting with board members, administrators, staff and other key stakeholders as part of my entry plan.  I have toured the schools and learned about on-going facilities improvement projects, addressed emerging personnel hiring needs, and delved into curriculum and student achievement improvement efforts.  It is my sense, during these early days, that the district is doing well and that we have a strong team to continue its progress. 

I look forward to meeting you during the next several months and to hear your points of pride as it relates to the district, as well as any concerns you may have.  In the meantime, please feel free to reach out to me at with any comments or questions. 

Enjoy the rest of your summer!


Frank Alvarez, Ed.D.
