    The Office of the Superintendent is the chief executive office of the Russell – Tyler – Ruthton (RTR) School District No. 2902, charged to provide overall leadership for the school system.

    On behalf of all at the RTR School District, I want to welcome you to another exciting year. As you get to know the district, it is my hope that you will find that each of the RTR Schools provides a robust and engaging educational experience for your child and your family. Each day, our dedicated team of professionals in the District provides curricular, co-curricular, and extra-curricular educational opportunities to ensure students reach their fullest potential. This level of commitment to quality and excellence has resulted in an engaging curriculum, high levels of student achievement, connections for career and college readiness, and high graduation rates.

    The RTR School District has enjoyed extensive benefits from a supportive and engaging community. Through an array of community partnerships with businesses, service organizations, and community stakeholders, the District is able to provide students with world-class educational opportunities while still enjoying the many small-town benefits of a community connected to the schools and their students. We welcome the benefits that come from strong parental engagement and community advocates who continue to support our schools and the quality of teaching provided by the RTR School System.

    Throughout the district, various schools, students, teachers, and administrators have received regional, state, and national recognition for excellence and for achievements in curricular, co-curricular, and extra-curricular events. These recognitions validate the level of quality in teaching and learning that each child experiences in our schools throughout the District. Through the ongoing efforts of this dedicated team of teachers, support staff, and administrators, the RTR School District is able to deliver on a commitment of excellence through continuous improvement. We strive every day to deliver on a promise of excellence!

    Whether you are just visiting or you are one of many who call the RTR School District home, I want to say thank-you once again for visiting our District website. We look forward to serving you and I hope you find our district website is a valuable resource as you explore all that the RTR School District has to offer. Our goal is to provide in-depth information about the educational opportunities, the programs, the district curriculum, the extended educational opportunities and the quality services provided by our school. We look forward to serving you and our RTR School District Communities.

    And remember . . . it is always a GREAT day to be a Knight!

    Warmest Regards,

    David A. Marlette
