Online Survey
Intermediate School Programs
Richmond Community Schools

We hope that you have had the opportunity to stay informed on the development of the Educational Facility Master Plan through our Community Meetings, Board Work Sessions, and the documentation of all materials which are posted on the school website at http://www.rcs.k12.in.us/.

All information and feedback to date are very important in this effort, and to ensure that the special programs that we offer in addition to state mandated curriculum are the best that they can be, we are committing our second round of Community Meetings to the discussion of programs that are offered in our school facilities.

To gather as much feedback as possible, we encourage you to take just a few minutes to complete our surveys on our program offerings. Because of the breadth of these offerings, we have separated these surveys by grade level. We encourage you to take all surveys, and we thank you in advance for your valuable input.
