RPS Partners with National Federation of High Schools Network to Live Stream Athletic Events
Richmond Public Schools (RPS) announced today a new partnership with the National Federation of High Schools Network (NFHS) to offer live stream coverage of athletic competitions and events at each of the districts’ five comprehensive high schools and the Arthur Ashe Center.
“Partnering with NFHS Network on a state of the art platform that showcases and celebrates many of the phenomenal talents our students and staff possess, blends fluidly into the district vision of Dreams4RPS,” said Dr. Stefanie Ramsey, RPS Instructional Specialist (Athletics). “I am excited for the possibilities before us and the chance for others to see all the great things happening in our district.”
RPS is the first school district in Virginia to partner with NFHS Network to offer live stream events.
“This partnership extends even beyond our athletics program,” said Dr. Ramsey. “We are working with our Career and Technical Education (CTE) department to have student broadcasters announce the events and the marketing classes for the advertising opportunities. This will allow our students to explore and cultivate new career pathways.”
The first broadcasts will stream the John Marshall High School vs. Armstrong High School basketball game and the George Wythe High School vs. Monacan High School basketball game today, Friday, February 8, 2019.
