A Message from RCS Interim Superintendent, Dr. Jocelyn Cosgrave

Dear Raider Family, 

I wanted to reach out to you personally after last night’s Special Board of Education meeting. For those of you who don’t know, the Board of Education appointed me to be Interim Superintendent for the next few months as they navigate their next steps in the Superintendent search. I am both humbled and honored to serve our District in this capacity for the next few months.

I want you to know that I am here for you, for our students and our community. As most of you know, I’ve spent most of my career in this District and we’ve been through all kinds of exciting and challenging times together. Though there have been lots of changes recently, one thing has always remained the same- our priority is and always will be, the students of our District, and that’s why I love it here. 

I have your back, and I know you have mine. Let’s rely on each other to ensure that everything we do is with students in mind. I am so appreciative of our Raider family and I want to thank you for everything you do for kids every day- in and outside of school. I’m sure you have questions. I will have honest conversations with you when I visit you in buildings and departments over the next few weeks. We will get through this together.

We will continue to follow our Strategic Plan, and we won’t miss a beat. We will continue to focus on Reading, Math, and Relationships through the lens of Deeper Learning– which is not optional; it’s necessary, and it’s beautiful work! We will continue to differentiate this work and support based on the needs of teachers and students. We will care for and appreciate each student that we serve, and we will do so by creating a loving environment with the highest of academic expectations. All of our students deserve a magical and engaging school experience. We will continue to transport, feed, counsel, heal, and grow our students. We really do have the best jobs in the world.

Finally, I want you to know that I am fully committed to charging our executive team with respectfully caring for the adults who care for students on the front lines each and every day. You may not always agree with every decision we make, but let’s always assume positive intent of one another; let’s be committed to honoring one another’s passion for the jobs we do on behalf of the students we share.

Thank you for being a Raider!  I look forward to seeing you soon. In the meantime, breathe in Purple and breathe out Gold. That’s what I’ve been doing to set the tone for each day and it's been a game changer because I arrive at work full of pride and possibility for the day ahead. We are on solid ground and I am proud to be in this season of hope alongside the best colleagues anyone could ask for.

I am…WE are…THE DISTRICT!

Sincerely, 

Dr. Jocelyn Cosgrave
