PATH FORWARD First Steps
Parent Engagement & Family Literacy
Relaunch of Parent University helps our families support reading and learning side-by side with our teachers and community partners. www.rcsdk12.org/parentuniversity
Our Community Schools partner network is working to expand the school day in our community schools and to integrate social-emotional, medical, dental, and nutritional services for students and families in our neighborhoods.
New K-12 Bilingual Academy
We’ve launched the new Bilingual Language and Literacy Academy to serve our newest students and families from hurricane-affected areas who have relocated to Rochester. The Academy provides a language-sheltered environment as students develop English proficiency and meets the academic and transitional needs of newly arrived Hispanic students and families.
Downtown Modern Learning Space
Our new Downtown Modern Learning Space is where students, teachers, parents, and administrators learn together about the latest technology, programs, and curriculum that will empower our students to engage, innovate, and prepare for college and careers.

Parent Engagement and Student Equity and Placement teams have created “Pop-up” Registration Centers at various community events and centers to help ensure better access for students and families.
