REACH 2015-2016 Grants Awarded

The REACH Foundation has funded over $150,000 to RCSD in Grants and Scholarships since 1998. On the evening of  December 15, 2015 we presented our 2015 Grant Recipients at the Board of Education meeting. Criteria for a REACH Grant is ‘innovative educational programming’ and once again our teachers knocked it out of the park.
