Superintendent Office

Greetings Romulus Families,

Welcome to the RCS family for the 2017/2018 School Year! This year, we are excited to continue two initiatives designed to bring education into the future at Romulus.

#1
After completing a scope of work last year through our Board of Education Facilities Committee (including our architect, financial advisers, school attorney, administration, and staff) and securing permission from our voters to proceed with a capital project planned for 2018, planning and design is nearly completed for review by the NYS Education Department (NYSED). Once we receive approval from NYSED, designs for our cafeteria, library, second floor classrooms, and athletic fields will begin to become reality through construction planned to start in Summer 2018. Look for foam board displays of our designs at our Open House on September 13th.

#2
Our instructional staff continues to partner with Education Elements (www.edelements.com) and WFL BOCES to develop Personalized Learning (PL) for our students. Our official launch into PL instruction occurred in March 2017. Already, our classrooms are transforming into student centered experiences where teachers design activities targeted to each student's needs and interests. Check out our video on PL at Romulus by pasting the following URL into your browser.

The 2017/2018 year continues to see student enrollment growing at Romulus. As we start classes, 459 students are enrolled at RCS. This number is up from 433 last year. Statistical models used for planning predicted enrollment at 400 based on past years. Our school has beaten the odds again to bring new students to RCS!

I am proud to be here working with all the rest of RCS to continue your school. As we look forward to this year and many more ahead, our motto of “Children First, Learning Always” leads our work. Please know we continue to have sound resources managed wisely for the future of the district. Our administration and staff are striving to improve and expand our programs. While changes are a part of our professional environment we’ve come to expect, our commitment to students never changes. Each year we learn and grow to make RCS better. May the excitement of a new year be with all of you and here’s to seeing you at open house, concerts, games, shows, and all the rest of the events of the year.
