RTI Update
We are currently in our third ELA RTI cycle. We will begin the second semester in our third Math RTI cycle. Teachers continue doing a great job identifying the best instructional strategies to best meet the needs of our students. Students have the opportunity to participate in Personalized Learning Time or Intervention during this class time.

Students will receive their second semester schedules (due to new electives) on December 19th during LEAD class. You may also view your student's schedule on the parent portal.
Random Student Drug Testing -2nd enrollment window open for Spring Sports
7th and 8th grade only
Per  Board of Education policy JFCI , if your student plans to participate in any activities, athletics, clubs, or organizations they must have a random student drug testing form on file.
The random student drug testing consent form is a one-time enrollment for a student's entire school career (6-12 grades). If your student turned one in last year or at the beginning of this year they will not need to submit a new one for a spring sport or for any additional years your student attends Republic School District.
If your 7th or 8th grader plans to participate in any of the qualifying activities during the 2019-20 school year, they must have a copy of the random student drug testing consent form on file. 
For athletic/activities taking place in the spring, the second enrollment window is open from January 6th-January 17th.

A copy of the consent form can by clicking  here .
