School district gets name change

Posted: Updated:

The Ramapo Central School District is officially changing its name to the Suffern Central School District.

Officials says that there was some confusion with Ramapo Central and the neighboring East Ramapo Central School District. So for the past two years, advocates have lobbied to change the name in hope of stopping the mix-ups and set the two districts apart.

The name change was unanimously passed by both the state Assembly and Senate and signed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

An announcement will be made at an assembly to district students when they go back to school next Wednesday.
