Welcome to Rowan Partners for Education. 

RPE is an independent partnership created by the Rowan County Chamber of Commerce and the community to educate our citizens about public education and advocate for public school excellence.

Mission Statement

RPE is a citizen-led initiative that will meet the challenges, offer support, and bring fact-driven reasoning to public school improvement in Rowan County.



Educators' Express is running full steam ahead! 
- Teachers, be sure to sign up to "shop" with us at our FREE store for RSSS teachers.

- Donors, thanks for your support with this program.  We need to keep those donations rolling in so we can continue to stock our shelves and help meet the needs of our public school teachers! 

Thanks to those who attended our 3rd Education Summit on 10/15/09. 
A special thanks to our sponsors who made it all possible.
