ROCORI ACADEMICS AND PROGRAMS
Over the last few weeks, I have heard questions or comments about the ROCORI Schools as we have engaged in a number public and community activities. At the Community Showcase, some guests and vendors asked about ROCORI performance and expectations. In conversations with parents researching schools, questions about our district success have been presented. Various contexts have offered opportunities to identify strengths and share information about the district.
Although the information is not presented in my normal writing format, I want to use the space to share information from our district brochures to let data and facts about the district speak to our academic and program success. I know the information is now a year old, but the information is consistent with current district performance.
Last week, information about our academic programs was included. This week, I would like to highlight opportunities for students in curricular and extra-curricular programs.
