The 2020-2021 school year has reinforced the bedrock principles that make the Rockwood School District a special place to learn and grow. With the challenges of a global pandemic, the school district offered parents a choice of at-home or in-person learning for their children.
Our more than 3,500 teachers and staff members go above and beyond to ensure a quality learning experience each day for nearly 21,000 learners. This includes looking after their instruction as well as transporting them safely to and from school, providing nutritious meals, caring for their health and providing social-emotional supports during turbulent times. Our students, families and community members, in turn, have shown tremendous grace and flexibility, along with a willingness to practice mitigation efforts that help keep everyone as safe and healthy as possible.
These collective efforts uphold a reputation founded on high student achievement, outstanding teachers and staff and great community support.
"I take each and every day with students - online and in person - as an achievement," Rockwood Superintendent Dr. Mark Miles said. "Our students are the reason we step out with determination, flexibility, grace, and excellence. I am proud of the work I see in our classrooms, our schools, and our departments."
