RPS Direct Update - June 29, 2021

Dear #RPSStrong Family, Did you see the front page of the RTD today?! Many thanks to Kenya Hunter for covering one of the most important stories of the year: the RPS Class of 2021 crushed their graduation requirements! We're projecting a grad rate of 85%, a jump of 14 percentage points. This didn't happen by chance. Our seniors stepped up in extraordinary ways throughout this virtual year, supported by their dedicated teachers, counselors, administrators, and, of course, families. As a system, we've also been methodically making new investments and launching new programs over the past three years to improve our on-time graduation numbers. All that work is beginning to pay off. Not only is our overall rate up, but so is the rate for every student subgroup (see the chart below).
