Message from Superintendent
Greetings Students, Staff, and Families,
The 2014-15 school year has commenced with a smooth opening for all our eight schools. We look forward to serving every child and family in the Rio community and invite you to play a key role in the lives of our youth. Public schools are the essential elements of the American democracy. They are a place where people of all walks of life come together to help guide and nurture the next generation of American and local community’s leaders and citizens. Our public schools are our great opportunity to work together and do things right and well. At Rio, we are working on bringing 21st century learning opportunities to every child while developing ourselves as a “world class” learning organization. Our themes for the year are “Living on the River” and “Leaders as Learners.” We look forward to families, students, and staff working together for the best possible educational experience for every child.
