We are pleased to announce that at a special board meeting on May 13, the Rochester School Board voted to select Dr. Kent Pekel as the district’s interim superintendent.
The end of the school year is approaching and that means we will be entering into construction season for Rochester Public Schools. We are making you aware of several school district buildings that will have construction occurring, which will likely result in limited or no parking, and limited or no access to the building.
We are pleased to announce the opening of our RPS Online School, a virtual option for K-12 students, enrolling for the Fall of 2021. This Online School has been approved by the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE).
RPS shares a message and resources on race and racism.
Folwell Elementary is a close community of just over 340 K-5 students in Southwest Rochester. The building was constructed in 1930 but has changed as we have grown. Folwell will be celebrating its 90th year in December of 2019.
