State Report Cards

The NYS Education Department releases School Report Cards on every public school and district in the state. Based on some key assessments taken by students in New York public schools, the report cards provide achievement data on districts and schools, as compared to their past years' performances and to other similar schools. Report cards are released each spring for the previous school year. View the district's 2013-14 Report Card, here.

New York State mandates that all public school districts offer Academic Intervention Services (AIS) to any student who is falling behind in meeting state standards. Students are identified for AIS according to their performance on the state ELA, math, and science exams in grades 3-8. RCS students who score in Performance Levels 1 and 2 are eligible to receive AIS in the designated subject area.

RCS offers English language learners appropriate programming in English as Second Language (ESL) classes, at all grade levels K-12.
