On behalf of the Richmond R-XVI School Board and our administrative team "Welcome Back" !
This is an exciting time of year for students and teachers alike. They are returning to their classrooms and buildings, with a new and fresh start. Kindergartners, second graders, sixth graders and our freshmen are truly starting a new adventure, as they experience a different building. There are always new faces, both teachers and students, but the focus is always the same: Education - "Together for of our students”.
We are pleased to say that we continue to be fully accredited through the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. As the year goes on you will begin hearing more about “Common Core” which will begin standardizing curriculum throughout the United States as well as “Smarter Balanced Assessment” which is the nationally-based testing that corresponds to common core.
This will help us determine not only where we are in relation to other Missouri schools but also across the nation.
The Richmond R-XVI School District is committed and excited to work with your children, our students for the 2013-2014 school year. We know that they will have a great adventure!
If you are new to the district, welcome!
If you are returning your students to the district, welcome back!
