BAC Completes Final Review: What we found out and where are we going

On Thursday, March 25, the volunteer-based Budget Advisory Committee wrapped up its three month-long review of budget items for the district community. This committee reviewed a number of programmatic possibilities that the RCS District is seeking to invest in for next year and beyond. This planning focused on the long-term outcomes for students and their potential for employment, enrollment or enlistment. 

At the March 25 meeting the committee reviewed programmatic proposals that sought to fulfil the specific skills that the RCS community has identified as priorities for the skills and experiences for a well-rounded graduate: communication skills, career awareness and exploration, collaboration, persistence, volunteerism, critical thinking, creativity, and accountability. Some of the key items addressed during the meeting were:

  • Access to problem-based learning

  • Articulation between grade and building levels

  • Community partnerships and volunteerism

  • Career planning and pathways
