    A Brief History – Full Circle


    Years ago, a group of dedicated business professionals and community leaders formed the Rowan-Salisbury Education Foundation to provide support and funding for programs that went above and beyond the normal curriculum in the Rowan Salisbury Schools. The name was later changed to Rowan Partners for Education (RPE) to better represent the mission of the organization.

    RPE Mission Statement
    Rowan Partners for Education will mobilize the community to support Rowan-Salisbury Schools by: Sharing the Renewal Story, Building Partnerships, Finding and Developing Resources.


    Moving forward, the name is again Rowan-Partners for Education and dedicated to:

    • Provide funding for innovative teaching methods
    • Ignite stronger and more positive results
    • Recognize the achievements of our teachers & students
    • Encourage students to reach higher academic success
    • Provide support to push through innovative projects

    RPE continues to build on what the original founders saw as such an incredible resource in our community. While RPE will work closely with RSS to help achieve common goals, the mission is to add to and not replace any existing programs.
