Hello ROCS families,

We hope you are safe and snuggly as you are reading this and that this inclement weather has given you a chance to recharge a bit. Below, you’ll find key takeaways from the September regular board meeting of the ROCS Board of Directors. We hope you will read all of detail below as we have a lot to share this month:

(1) The board recognized outgoing Head of School Angela Dawson and Mr. Rodney Berry for leaning in and stepping up. Please take a moment to read this letter and to lift Ms. Dawson up in your hearts. Additionally, in this note you will see several calls to action for you, our valued community of ROCStars.

(2) We need your unwavering support and participation now more than ever. Please take a look at the bottom of the Parent Circle’s latest update for more detail on the biggest needs and sign up to show up for this school that strives to give our families so much.

(3) The Executive Director job description was approved and has been posted. There are also several other vacancies we are looking to fill so please take a look and share broadly with your networks.

(4) ROCS is in great hands during this transition with daily administrative coverage under the sound leadership of Mr. Berry and our partners at Leaders Building Leaders and Charter Success Partners. Your children are safe, happy and learning.

(5) The school is currently in good financial health but will need to keep expenses down through the month of October while we wait for county payments. This is normal.

Have a restful weekend,
