GATE Identification: The 2015-2016 school year GATE identification test will be administered at the District Office for students currently in 2nd-7th grade. The students will take the Otis-Lennon School Ability Test, OLSAT, that tests abstract thinking and reasoning ability. Students must attend one of the testing dates on the OLSAT Parent Permission Form in order to complete the testing by the district. The Parent Permission Forms will be made available on December 1, 2014 on our district website @ www.rcsdk8.org under the “Parent” tab. All forms must be returned to the District Office by January 9, 2015 if you would like your student tested. There are no exceptions as materials are ordered based on the number of returned forms. Make sure you check the district website under the “Parents” tab for more information regarding GATE services and testing.
Inter/Intra District Transfer Process
While parents and students generally desire to attend the school in their area of residence, the California Ed. Code and policies of the RCSD's Board of Education do allow options for students wanting to attend a school outside their established attendance area. Based on the provisions of the law and the applicable Board policies. Below you will find the letters in Spanish and English for Inter/Intra District transfers for the 2015-2016 school year. Applications are available at the district office or Cooley. Open enrollment applications will be accepted from January 20, 2015 through Feburary 20, 2015. A separate and final application window is available from March 2, 2015 through March 13, 2015. Applications during the last period will be given a number as they are received at the district office and will be addressed in the order they are received.

School Supplies: The following items are suggested school supplies for this year: Sturdy backpack, 2” binder, binder paper, pens, pencils (No. 2), highlighters, glue sticks, and a ruler. Individual instructors may suggest additional materials.
The Cooley Student Handbook: This important publication is included In the Cooley Planner. “The Handbook Test” will be given to every student the first week of school, and this test is to be completed – Open Handbook! – and returned to Second Period. We encourage students and parents to complete the test together. Other activities are planned to help students understand school expectations as well. A PDF version of the Handbook it below.
Just Read! Many times each week, parents ask, “What can I do to help my son/daughter do better in school?” There is no greater support that you can give your child, besides love, of course, than encouraging them to read, read, read. Reading just 20 minutes each night will greatly increase your student’s abilities in academic classes throughout the year.
