"RPS Direct" Emails from Superintendent Kamras

  • RPS Direct Update - October 27, 2020

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, Great news! About 7,000 Chromebooks from our June (!) order of 10,000 have shipped and are scheduled to arrive later this week! Once they're here, our technology vendor will configure them for student use and then deliver them directly to schools. If all goes smoothly, this means we should be able to begin swapping out tablets late next week. Please keep an eye out for distribution details from your student's school. Thank you for your patience! I also want to take this opportunity to thank the many teachers, principals, and families who reached out to share their very thoughtful concerns about using letter grades at the elementary level during our virtual semester. I'm happy to share that I'll be recommending to the School Board on Monday that we switch to E (Exceeds Expectations), S (Satisfactory), N (Needs Improvement), and U (Unsatisfactory) for K-5 students during the first semester. I'll share more details about this at our meeting on Monday. Again, thank you for the very helpful feedback. Enormous gratitude also goes to Senator Tim Kaine for speaking to a George Wythe government class today about his RVA roots. He charged our students to get involved and make their voices heard, especially right now. He also shared how important bilingualism has been for his work (he's one of only 3 Senators who are fluent in Spanish). We're so grateful to Senator Kaine for his leadership and his support of RPS!
