How close is RPS to being fully staffed for the start of our virtual semester?
As of August 17, we had filled 94% of our teacher vacancies, with only 25 remaining (see chart below).
Is RPS doing anything different to onboard new staff for our virtual semester?
Yes. All new employees will receive an email with a link for a virtual orientation. In addition, the Talent Office will individually connect with all new hires to address any questions or concerns. New employees who still need support setting up their RPS email account should contact Tonya Leigh at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What will New Teacher Orientation look like this year?
New Teacher Orientation (NTO) will take place on August 24 and 25 per the School Board approved calendar. NTO will be fully online and will include training specifically tailored to new teachers. Topics will include both the technical (e.g., learning how to access to ASPEN and other RPS platforms) and the pedagogical (e.g., understanding the basic of our new ELA and math curricula).
