The Riverhead Central Faculty Association (RCFA) was chartered in May of 1973. We are also affiliated with NYSUT, our state organization and AFT/NEA, our national organizations. Our members serve the almost 5,000 students of the Riverhead School District in all 7 facilities throughout the district. We are proud to be a union of professionals who remain dedicated and determined to provide the best possible education to all of our students. We are members of New York State United Teachers (NYSUT), American Federation of Teachers (AFT), as well as the National Education Association (NEA). Currently we have approximately 380 dedicated members.
The RCFA serves as the sole negotiating and bargaining agent for all certified professional employees: teachers, guidance counselors, social workers, psychologists, librarians, speech professionals and school nurses.
The purpose of the RCFA is:
- Promoting the interest of public education
- Advancing the standards of the teaching profession
- Securing the conditions necessary for efficient and effective education
- Promoting the welfare of its members
- Promoting a closer school and community relationship
Offices of the RCFA are located at 223 Roanoke Avenue, Riverhead, NY. Our offices serve as meeting places for monthly Executive Board meetings and other committee meetings throughout the year. The offices also serve as the location of our Member Benefit Trust Plan.
