Focus & Mission



The fundamental purpose of the Mid-Hudson School Study Council is to bring about the improvement of education in the school districts located in the Mid-Hudson Valley.

The Council aims to accomplish this purpose through the cooperative study of common educational problems, the effective diffusion of educational practices, and the stimulation of active participation of school boards, administrators, teachers, pupils, and laypersons in educational planning and activity.

Through its collaborative efforts with higher education we strive to enhance the quality of education by serving as an essential link between the resources of higher education and the school districts in the mid-Hudson region. The Council's unique relationship with the higher education fosters an important partnership between college research and field experience.
