Richfield Realized: Virtual Strategic Plan Feedback Session

Decorative image with colored diamonds on gray background

Hello RPS Students, Families, Staff and Community,

As you may recall, we have been working to create a new strategic plan for Richfield Public Schools, which we are calling Richfield Realized. We started this process almost a year ago, with hundreds of students, staff, families and community members providing input through a series of in-person meetings and online forms.

We have synthesized all the feedback you provided and we have been seeking comments on the plan draft for the past few weeks. If you have already reviewed the draft and shared your thoughts, thank you! If you have not yet had the opportunity to provide feedback, there are two options:

  1. Attend the community meeting we are hosting via Google Meet on Tuesday, November 17, at 4:30 p.m. Please pre-register to receive the Google Meet link for the meeting. 
  2. Review the plan and provide feedback online. You can also review the presentation video from the October community meeting.

We hope you like the draft plan. Our team worked very hard to incorporate all the feedback you provided and to create something that will lead us in the right direction for the next five years with a focus on equity, expanding school offerings, and better engaging our students, families and community.

Sincerely, 

Superintendent Steven Unowsky
