Providing a consistent, unwavering partnership with our communities in support of public education
While operating independently, RCPEP will work closely with the schools and key community stakeholders to identify, develop and support impactful, Innovative Programs.
RCPEP recognizes that many challenges and solutions are specific to a particular school or community. We are flexible enough to account for these differences and to respond accordingly by funding quality programs that enhance the educational experience.
With a unified voice and Committed Partnerships, RCPEP and its partners will identify common needs and challenges across Richland County and champion solutions that will improve our schools and positively impact the lives of our students.
RCPEP will also provide parents with information so that they are empowered to effectively advocate for children in our public schools.
RCPEP knows that our students are our future. We want the best for every student in Richland County, and we are committed to the idea that becoming a Successful Student is a reality for every student.
