Rogers Public Schools has over fourteen thousand students in its PreK-12th grade programs. There are fourteen elementary schools, four middle schools, two high schools, and an alternative school that all follow the District guidelines of providing educational excellence where all belong, all learn, and all succeed. The Arkansas Department of Education provides curriculum guidelines that are based on the Common Core Standards, which have been adopted by forty-five states, as of December, 2012. Additionally, Rogers Public Schools has developed its own curricular guidelines for both parents and teachers which are very detailed. For the K-5 grade levels, there is an overview of what is being covered during six-week periods in the various subjects, what the goals for the unit are, and how parents can participate in their child’s learning. The parent resources state that parental involvement is valued and encouraged. In middle school and high school, there are plans for teachers which specify the course objectives, vocabulary, resources, and materials.
Students in the District speak thirty-seven different native languages. The teacher/student ratio for Rogers Public Schools is 1:16, which is very strong. Rogers Public Schools has five Pre-Kindergarten Centers which provide early learning skills to children who meet eligibility requirements.

Chalk Talk: How To Handle Bullying
Bullying is very difficult to handle because often children do not tell their parents all of the details when incidents happen. Children are embarrassed or do not want to tattle on others. There are steps that parents can take to try to help their children. 1) Get as much information as possible. Let your child know that you are proud of him or her for trusting you and for telling you the truth, 2) Work with your child to try to solve the problem. Let your child brainstorm possible solutions and guide him or her to come up with reasonable actions, 3) Encourage your child to stay in groups because bullies usually bother children who are alone, 4) Involve your child's teacher if the bullying is happening at school. Often many students are being bullied and the school should participate in solving the problem, 5) If your child is the bully, tell him or her that this behavior is unacceptable. Work on activities to improve your child's self-esteem. Cooperate with your child's teacher so that the bullying can be stopped, Although bullying is a difficult problem, adults must take the responsibility to help kids who are involved.
