RCS-LOGO
From the Desk of Mr. Van Der Puy
I thought I would give you an update on RCS Accreditation. Our site visit has been moved to May 3-5. Most likely, two of those days will be virtual, with an onsite day held on May 5.
The Long Range Planning Committee has been working toward this event for the last several years. The Wisconsin Council of Religious and Independent Schools (WCRIS) is our accountability partner, making sure that our programs are conducted well and that we have all required policies and plans in place to show we operate according to all standards.
As parents and guardians of RCS students, it is possible that during the site visit, someone from the team will reach out to you to share your experience with the school. Your feedback will be greatly appreciated.
RCS believes in continuous growth and improvement. We can always learn and become better. We are pleased to have your family a part of this exciting time in the life of Racine Christian School!
Blessings,
Pete Van Der Puy
RCS Head of School
