Family Advisory Meeting

April's meeting was hosted by Dixie Elementary School. The district's Director of Transportation, Mr. Lane Lindsay, and the Director of At Risk/Attendance, Mr. Jacob Johnson, discussed many topics including bus safety, weather safety, truancy data, and mental health awareness.

Each month, directors from around the district give updates and discuss questions and/or concerns from our advisory committee. Our school district is committed to growing and getting better everyday.

RCSD Family Engagement Plan

Families can request the school level plans by contacting administration at your school site. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the district's Family Engagement Plan, please email Mrs. Kimmel at kimmels@russellcsd.net.

Purpose of the Monthly Newsletter

All schools in Russell County are supported by Title I federal funds. Title I schools are required to set annual goals for school improvement, measure student progress using Alabama State Standards, and implement programs and services beyond what the district usually provides. The district and schools are also required to plan how they will involve parents and families in the education of their children. This newsletter is just one of many ways Russell County School District strives to keep families involved as well as educated on all Title I supports.

Annual Title I, Title II, and Parent Engagement Meeting

The annual Stakeholder meeting was held on August 25th from 5:45- 7:00 at the Warrior Training Center. All stakeholders have a right to know what is happening in their school district. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to Mrs. Kimmel at kimmels@russellcsd.net.
