We Start Careers

Principal's Message

  • Principal Jonathan Mitchum

    Welcome and thank you for visiting Richmond Technical Center, where "We staRT Careers!".

    My commitment to Richmond Technical Center is to provide a safe and intellectually challenging environment that will empower students to become innovative thinkers, creative problem solvers and inspired learners prepared to thrive in the twenty-first century. The ultimate goal of our school is to prepare students to flourish in high skill, high wage, high demand careers.

    This past year we proudly ushered students to their next destination whether employment or education, including placements at Newport News Shipyard, Medical College of Virginia, Rolls Royce, the United States Army, the United States Air Force, and several local community colleges and universities.  I am extremely proud of the strong partnerships we hold with stakeholders as we work together in a collaborative and respectful manner.

    High standards and expectations for each student in regards to academic performance, co-curricular participation, and responsible citizenship are the foundation of our school. It is with pride that I hold these high standards and ask each of our students to commit to maintaining the extraordinary record of achievement and contribution that has been the legacy of Richmond Technical Center students. It is the contribution of our students to our school community that makes Richmond Technical Center an exceptional learning community.

    Prepare well for upcoming tests this semester, and please be Safe. If I can be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me and know that my door is always open. I can be reached at jmitchum@rvaschools.net. I am honored to serve as your principal.

"RPS Direct" Emails from Superintendent Kamras

  • RPS Direct Update - September 17, 2021

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, Happy Friday! Tonight's updates: Mask Reminders – Parents and caregivers, please be sure students have their masks on when approaching and boarding the school bus. This helps ensure a safe and speedy boarding process. Please also make sure to send your students with a mask that fits their face. Adult size masks are not appropriate for small children, as they do not fit tightly (see CDC graphic below). If you need pediatric masks, your school can provide them. Thank you for helping keep RPS safe! COVID-19 Vaccination Mandate – RPS employees, please be reminded that you have until October 1 to submit full proof of vaccination or obtain a religious/medical exemption. Though I pray it doesn't come to this, please understand that any employee who does not meet the requirements of the mandate will face progressive discipline, including loss of employment.

  • RPS Direct Update - September 15, 2021

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, While we've been overjoyed to return to school despite COVID, we've also been heartbroken by another pandemic that plagues our community – gun violence. I'm devastated to share that, in the past 48 hours, five RPS students have been shot. We've also lost two students to other causes (unrelated to gun violence or COVID). These tragic events remind us of the grief and trauma that so many RPS students, families, and staff face daily. The RPS family is hurting tonight. Let us all pause this evening to check on one another, support one another, and extend grace and love to one another.
