Greetings Parents, Students, and Community members,
Rio’s 2014-15 school year is zooming by with more than 120 of the 180 day school year complete. Students and staff are doing some amazing work as we endeavor to transform learning environments and outcomes to meet 21st century demands. In many cases this means striking the right balance of learning methods including; teacher led activities, individual/digital activities, and inquiry focused, project-based activities. Rio’s staff and students are tackling this transformative task and we are excited about the progress being made as an organization and community. Technology is playing an important role in this process as we implement our 1 to 1 learning program providing every child with an internet-connected, mobile. learning device and each classroom with visual and audio presentation systems that allow learners and educators to engage with and present 21st century quality information. This year our connections to parents and families have also been significantly enhanced through the use of technology as many parents and families have connected to our schools and District through digital means. Our goal in the next few months is to continue the forward momentum that has been created in the last two and a half years and to find new levels of organizational and community results. It is our mission to create world class learning opportunities for the Rio Community that ultimately yield world class results. We look to our staff and community for ongoing engagement and collaboration in serving all the children of the Rio School District.
Superintendent – Rio School District – Empowering Learners to thrive in 21st Century
