Dear Rochester Community School District Families,

Welcome! We are pleased that you have entrusted your child’s educational future to our care. Rochester Community Schools provides an academically rigorous curriculum and is consistently ranked as a top school district based on science, social studies, math, and writing test scores. We also offer a diverse selection of individual and team athletic programs designed to build a student's self-confidence and competitive spirit, and our performing and visual arts programs have been recognized at local, state and national levels.

Parents new to our district may have a number of questions about our curriculum, programs and services. The best resource is our website at www.rochester.k12.mi.us, where community members can locate information about our district, ranging from individual departments to overall district goals and performance data. The building principals, secretaries, and teachers can provide more specific school information. For other inquiries, parents can use the Talk to Us feature on our website, or call the district phone number at 248-726-3000. The district's email communication tool is SchoolMessenger, which utilizes the email address that was provided on your child's emergency card. If you would like to add or change your email information, please contact the school secretary.

Rochester Community Schools values and supports a strong parent network. I would encourage all parents to become familiar with the school's Parent Teacher Association (PTA), and embrace opportunities to volunteer at school and participate in periodic district parent informational meetings. As Superintendent, I host community coffees before several of the PTA Council meetings. Please check the website for upcoming dates and times.

With an annual operating budget of $173 million and a skilled, caring staff, Rochester Community Schools is poised to continue the tradition of academic excellence that has been established over generations. If I can be of assistance to you and your family, please do not hesitate to contact me at rshaner@rochester.k12.mi.us.
