Vision: The Richmond County School System will provide an equitable education for all students to prepare them for life beyond the classroom.
Mission: Building a globally competitive school system that educates the whole child through teaching, learning, collaboration, and innovation.
Before September 8th, we recommend that students and parents complete the Canvas Orientations found at rcboe.org/canvas. We recommend that students send their teachers a practice message inside Canvas just to let the teacher know the student is ready for September 8th. The orientations will give students and parents a high-level introduction to the features Canvas offers. The communications department has shared orientation resources on the rcboe.org homepage and on social media, but it would be helpful if your school and teachers shared the grade-specific orientations as well (especially your online teachers). Those orientations can be found on the rcboe.org/canvas webpage. If you have a school Facebook account, please follow and share the RCSS Facebook Canvas Orientation posts on your school account as well (a good practice for all communication that applies to your school/grade level).
Parents are able to connect to their students’ accounts by “pairing.” This is something that parents will have to do, there is no automated process. In addition to the resources on our website, I wanted to provide you with the steps in case you need to share them with your teachers prior to open house. This could be helpful to share with your front office staff in case parents call for support during this first month.
