RCPS hires School Social Worker
Posted On:
Thursday, July 18, 2019
Please join me in welcoming a new staff member who was approved by the School Board at their July 2019 meeting to fill the newly created position of School Social Worker - Ms. Kathy Sickler.
Kathy is both an experienced and a licensed clinician with a plethora of experience in a variety of roles in her field, along with the academic degrees from ODU (Undergrad) and VCU (Master's) and professional licenses to match.  She has nearly two decades of experience in the field, most of which has been spent working with at-risk youth.  She has also worked collaboratively with our school system for the past five years and no doubt will be a familiar face to some of you.
Kathy will be housed primarily at RCHS, although she will serve the entire division.  Her addition to our staff gives us an invaluable tool in our perpetual quest to improve and strengthen our students' experiences here at RCHS.
A big thank our School Board and Dr. Grimsley, both of whom worked hard to make this dream of a school social worker a reality for us.  Ms. Sickler will, as Dr. Grimsley said, be "...an amazing resource..." and I am confident, as I hope you will be, that she will be a welcome addition to our Rapp family.
Jimmy Swindler, RCHS Principal
