• We believe everyone benefits when families, schools, and the community work together! Studies show that family engagement in schools contributes to positive student outcomes, including:

    • improved student achievement
    • decreased disciplinary issues
    • improved parent-teacher and teacher-student relationships
    • and improved school environment.

    RCPS' goal is to partner with families and the community to create strong, school-based family engagement programming and meaningful relationships that support student success, opportunities, and growth.

    There are many opportunities to be engaged at the school and division level, including PTA membership, providing input, volunteering, as well as throughout the community. 

    Below you will find a calendar of community events that may benefit your family as you support your child's education. Use the calendar below to find upcoming local events and opportunities.

    Community organizations wishing to partner with Roanoke City Public Schools or submit events to be included on the calendar should email communityengagement@rcps.info.
