School Governance Council

River Trail Middle School will be electing representatives to serve on the School Governance Council. We will be electing a parent/guardian position and a teacher position in our spring election.  Our School Governance Council has a leadership role in the governance of the school.  The Council works with the principal on the long term vision and strategy for the school.  They are responsible for approving the school's strategic plan and budget recommendations, as well as designing innovative solutions to increase academic achievement and meet the unique needs of our school community.

Elections for both parent and teacher positions on the School Governance Council will be held on Mar 22 -28.  Candidates interested in running for an elected position on the Council must complete a candidate declaration form (electronically or by mail) and submit by Feb 17.

End of Course (EOC) Test-Out Option

Once again, RTMS will offer the "test out" option for eligible students for the following EOC Assessments: 9th Lit/Comp, Algebra 1, and Physical Science. Although this is an opportunity for students to move past a high school course without taking it, parents and students should carefully weigh the impact as some classes are stepping stones for others. Additional information about student eligibility requirements and the testing out process is posted on the RTMS website under the Parent Tab.
