"RPS Direct" Emails from Superintendent Kamras

  • RPS Direct Update - May 10, 2021

    As we prepare to #ReopenWithLove2.0, we're excited to show you – not just tell you – some of the things we're doing to protect everyone's health and safety next year. For example, check out the picture below of a Carrier OptiClean HEPA Filtration Air Scrubber at Miles Jones Elementary School. We'll have one of these units in every classroom in RPS, and several of them in every large common area. These air scrubbers meet the standard for hospitals, and they were named one of Time Magazine's Best Inventions of 2020. Over the next couple of weeks, I'll be sharing more pictures of our health and safety investments so you can literally see everything we're doing to prepare.

  • RPS Direct Update - May 7, 2021

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, Congratulations to Ashley Bland, our 2021 Teacher of the Year! Mrs. Bland serves as an Instructional Technology Resource Teacher (ITRT) for John B. Cary Elementary School and has been THE go-to source for support this year for teachers, students, and families. You might be familiar with her name because she's appeared in the shout-outs 30 times! Ashley earned bachelor's degrees in biomedical engineering and physics, and then went on to earn her master's in education, all at VCU. She entered RPS through the Richmond Teacher Residency, and is passionate about inspiring more students of color to pursue degrees and careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).
