RU Updated

Attention ILO or Dual Enrollment Students!
As of Tuesday, January 30th there is a new protocol to keep track of attendance.  You need to come to student services at the start of the period when you have a "gap" for your ILO to account for that course.  When you come to student services, attendance will be taken.  Then you may either continue to work in student services or sign out to go to another space in the building (ie. the media center).  This is so that in case of emergency, we know exactly where you are.  
We look forward to seeing all of you promptly for the start of any period!

Whole-School Assembly and Rebecca Haslam Visit Follow-Up

Thank you to all who helped make last week’s visit from Rebecca Haslam and our Whole-School Assembly possible.  In terms of our discussions of race, diversity and equity at RU, several students have come forward to share what's on their minds:
Two students have emphasized the importance of not losing momentum in these conversations, and there appears to be some interest in forming a Racial Justic Student Alliance (RJSA). Rebecca Haslam shared ideas on how to do this, and we are happy to support her coming back to RU if students request it.
Another student has commented on what Montpelier HS is doing for February, Black History Month, and we will be sharing some of these ideas with our student leadership groups (YATST, NHS, Captains Council, Campus Life).

Workforce Development Update
Here are the latest updates on our Workforce Development and Career Pathways Initiatives

GW Plastics, in partnership with Ken Cadow, director of Career Pathways and Workforce Development at RU, graduated its latest School of Tech class this January.

Students traveled to GW Plastics twice a week to learn about advanced manufacturing, including the design and manufacture of medical devices. They were able to take advantage of the expertise of some of the most experienced managers and technical professionals in the industry. The students also experienced first hand the teamwork that contributes to successful outcomes, and they received coaching to help them prepare for their futures, whether it be pursuing college, or entering the workforce, as they approach high school graduation.

The School of Tech is a semester long program open to all high school students in the area who are interested in learning about practical applications of science and math in the advanced manufacturing world. Students learn how to create innovative devices, starting from an idea, while receiving high school credit for the experience.

The 10 studnets who participated in this past semester's program join the more than 50 students who have successfully completed past School of Tech courses since the program's inception in September of 2016.
