Thank you for your interest in supporting Richmond Public Schools! We strongly believe that we will only be successful through deep partnerships with families and the community. This is why our 2018-2023 Strategic Plan, Dreams4RPS, was carefully crafted based on direct feedback from more than 170 public meetings throughout the community.
As part of the RPS Office of Engagement, the Department of Community Partnerships strives to leverage partner support by serving as a doorway for organizations and individuals interested in helping us make Dreams4RPS a reality for our students.
There are a number of ways to engage with us - here’s how to get started:
