Superintendent’s Message


Happy Spring:

With less than a month left in the 2021-2022 school year, I want to first say, “Thank you,” to all school community members for the support they have provided to our school division during another very difficult and trying school year. Despite many challenges, RCPS has had many successes. Please review the many accomplishments below that we have been recognized for recently.

  • Multiple academic state championships and an 11th place national finish by our RHS Scholastic Bowl Team
  • Multiple athletic state championships in fall/winter activities and a strong start in our spring athletic events
  • Multiple state and regional state awards in our fine arts programs
  • The RHS Cryptocats team finished first in the Region VII championships qualifying for state competition where they placed 10th in the Commonwealth
  • A brand-new partnership with Carillion and UWSWVA to bring Kinder Camps to our school division
  • National Reading Month success and One School Book initiative at BHES
  • An award of close to $60,000 to bring an indoor golf practicing facility the RHS campus
  • A recognition by the VDOE to designate RCPS as a school division of innovation
  • A beautiful, newly renovated McHarg Elementary scheduled to open in the fall


These are just a few of many accomplishments this outstanding school division has earned this year. What a special school system! Best wishes for a wonderful last month of the 2021-2022!
