• Welcome Homeschoolers!

     

    Rockingham County Schools (RCS) believes that a strong homeschool to public school partnership will positively impact our community. We are excited to announce these new opportunities and welcome homeschoolers to participate in the variety of classes and activities offered on our campuses. RCS consists of twenty-five schools that provide personalized, 21st century instruction for all students. 
     
    The Rockingham County Schools board "recognizes that home school students may not have access to the array of courses and activities generally available to students attending charter or private schools.  To enhance the opportunities available to home school students, the board will permit homeschool students to enroll in the Rockingham County Schools on a part-time basis and will otherwise develop rules and regulations to administer the participation of home school students in Rockingham County Schools programming.  Home school students who enroll in at least two online and/or on-campus RCS courses may participate in designated extracurricular activities provided by the Rockingham County Schools."  - from RCS Board Policy 4127  Currently athletic participation is not allowed under NCHSAA policy.
