A Message to the Rhode Island Community/Un mensaje para la comunidad educativa de Rhode Island

It’s hard to believe that the first day of school is almost here. We always work hard to prepare for this day, but this year has been on a whole new level.

State leaders and school communities have risen to meet challenges never before seen in our lifetimes. We set the stage last spring when we turned on a dime to move to distance learning when the COVID-19 pandemic first hit Rhode Island. Over the summer, we all worked around the clock to make sure our students and school staff can return to learning. Rhode Island is ready to learn. It is time to put good curriculum and instruction front and center once again.

The state worked tirelessly to do all we can to ensure that we have layers of safety in place. Our students and teachers are ready. Our families and communities are ready. As a new Rhode Islander, I have been awed by the way Rhode Islanders come together to support one another. The Ocean State is awash in flexibility, patience and kindness that make it like no other place. I am confident that Rhode Islanders will continue to draw upon these special attributes to support our school communities as they embark on a new year of learning.

We are doing all of this because, at the end of the day, education is not an option. It is not a luxury. It is core to the pact government makes with society. We must not let anything stand in the way of our delivering on that promise to all of our learners.

Let’s start strong! Send us your stories, photos and videos from your first week at school by using #Back2SchoolRI. Let’s show Rhode Island is ready to learn.

Rhode Island rises to the challenge

Commissioner Angélica M. Infante-Green

All across Rhode Island, our teachers, school leaders, families, and especially students are rising to the challenge of making education happen during challenging times. I want to personally thank all of you for going to great lengths to make sure learning goes on in the Ocean State.

I can think of no better way to show the nation that we are committed to “Turning Hope into Results.” Our vision for education in Rhode Island is founded on three core pillars: World-Class Talent, Excellence in Learning, and Engaged Communities. I am incredibly proud of how we are turning that vision into reality, even as we deal with a very real public health threat.

Now more than ever we need your support to ensure we give the best education to students across our state. You can help by donating to the Fund for Rhode Island Public Education. Charitable contributions in any amount will be accepted and used to support initiatives aligned to our vision that benefit the education of our public school students.

You are amazing. Thank you!

Angélica Infante-Green
