Dear Students and Parents & Guardians of RTCC Students:
Grade Reports- Report cards will be mailed home on January 20.
We have very high expectations for students. It is often said that students come to RTCC as teenagers but we expect them to act like adults. And it's true...we do. Students who are new to RTCC find that they need to balance learning about a new school with managing multiple assignments within their technical program as well as in their related, academic programs. In the first & second quarter, some students find out that their hope of not doing homework or handing in an assignment late has seriously affected their grade. Most students, however, have enjoyed the freedoms and respect that come with a technical education program and have done well. If your son or daughter is doing well, please acknowledge their accomplishment. If they are struggling in any course, please support them to do better. Give them time, whatever structure they need, and the encouragement to talk to you about their coursework and focus on homework and course assignments. Thank you for standing behind your son or daughter and enabling and encouraging him/her to pursue technical education at RTCC. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any comments, questions or concerns. Instructors can be reached via telephone (728-9595), or e-mail.
By now you should have received a letter explaining how to access your students Power School account. This is one way to keep track of what is going on. If you have not received our letter please contact the office at 802-728-9595 for another copy.
Finally, check out this amazing video, especially starting at about 2:29 into it, featuring Taylor, who's learning how to weld and who's building the skills she needs to live life on her own terms. You can see it here: https://vimeo.com/196656436/1c30811ee2
