Skate World, a local business, recently had a Facebook contest asking participants to post the name of their school. The school with the most posts would be the winner....and that school was Rochelle!!! Thank you, families, for this effort. Rochelle was presented with a $300 check from Skate World this week. Funds will be used to support activities for our students!
Special Note for Families of e-Learners
Schoology (pronounced “School – u – gee”) is the new district Learning Management program. Teachers have participated in several hours of tutorials to learn the basics and features of this program, and we appreciate your patience as we learn through experience what works best. For our students and their families: Schoology is the platform through which the teachers will give assignments and assessments. Sometimes students can do the work right in the Schoology system and submit directly from there. Other times, students may do work paper-pencil style and need to upload the assignment for the teacher to review. Please do this in Schoology, not through other programs like Remind, Class DoJo, or the teacher’s email. This enables the teacher to see all students’ submitted work in one location. Thank you for your assistance.

All inspections for Rochelle School of the Arts have been completed and a Management Plan describing the results of the inspection and the action plan to control any asbestos found during the inspection, where applicable, has been submitted to the Governor for approval. A copy of this plan is located in the administrative office of this school and at the District School Board of Polk County Maintenance Department and is available for review upon request.
