RCS Beliefs in Action

In 2013, Rochester Community Schools Superintendent, Dr. Robert Shaner, initiated a new strategic planning process called, Pride in Excellence: Strategic Planning 2020. The strategic plan guides our efforts to ensure students are college ready, career ready and life ready. In 2016, the leadership team which represents all schools and departments across the district expanded upon the strategic plan by further defining what it means to put our beliefs into action. Their work is reflected in the video, which was shown to all staff members in August 2017.
