High School Update

After more than five years at the helm of RCS High School, our principal, Dr. Lisa Patierne, has submitted her letter of resignation for the purpose of retirement. Her retirement letter was accepted by the Board of Education at their meeting last night. Dr. Patierne’s final day at RCS is set for October 28, 2022. 

A high school principal hiring committee of community stakeholders will be gathered to review our priorities as we seek a replacement for Dr. Patierne. Interviews will begin in August with the hopes of appointing the successful candidate in early September. We anticipate a smooth transition, with some shared time, between Dr. Patierne and the successful candidate.
