Each of the Rye schools has a Principal, Guidance Counselor, Food Service Director and Nurse. Both Rye schools share a Technology Director, and Special Education Coordinator. The school year is 180 days for students. To receive information about how to enroll a student, you may call the Rye Elementary School for grades K-5 or the Rye Junior High School for grades

6-8. The documentation required for each new student includes a birth certificate, proof of residency, and proof of required immunizations.

The Rye School District is part of School Administrative Unit 50 – (SAU 50)    which includes the school districts of Greenland, Newington and New Castle. There are four administrators for SAU50: superintendent, assistant superintendent, business administrator and special education director. The SAU50 administrators oversee many different areas of the four member districts including payroll, human resources, finances, accounting, special education, professional development and

curriculum. SAU50 is managed by the SAU50 School Board which includes all school board members from Rye, Greenland, Newington and New Castle. The SAU50 School Board is responsible for hiring the Superintendent; acting on the Superintendent’s nominations for SAU50 professional staff; establishing the salaries of all SAU50 personnel; adopting a budget for SAU50 expenses; and developing policies that affect all school districts in the SAU. SAU50  also oversees all member school’s curricula to ensure consistency and alignment to the NH State Curriculum Frameworks. The meeting times for the SAU Board can be found at the website www.SAU50.org.

The Rye School Board is comprised of five members, each of whom is elected to a three-year term. The terms are staggered so that not all Board members are elected in the same year. The Rye School Board meets monthly during the school year, every third Wednesday at 6:00 p.m.in the Rye Junior High cafeteria, unless otherwise noted. The meetings are open to the public.
