Family Resources

Just as Raskob students need specific supports in place to be successful, so do Raskob parents. The RPA has developed a few support structures to help the caregivers of Raskob’s students get the help and information they need. Below you will find a list of items relating to the community. Our Google Group forum is specifically for the Raskob community. It offers a place to post questions, ask for or give recommendations, and ultimately keep us connected. Raskob Cares is a network of helping hands for when life gets really tough. School Notes helps parents and students stay informed about homework assignments and other school events.
