Superintendent's Spotlight

RCS hosted a literacy summit to share information regarding current research and best practices in literacy. We continue to take a comprehensive approach to ensuring literacy across all grade levels. Teachers play a critical role, but we also value and appreciate family and community partnerships to ensure student success. The literacy summit brought those key stakeholders together to share their beliefs about what literacy looks like in our schools and creates dialogue to enhance a vision for a world-class educational system.
