These are exciting times in the Roseville City School District. The number of students enrolled in our eighteen schools tops 10,000. Teachers and classified staff are receiving meaningful professional development related to the new curricular materials and instructional practices, and building permits are increasing in the West Roseville section of the district. All indicators are pointing in a positive direction for Roseville City, including increases in student learning as measured by the California Assessment of Student Progress and Performance (CAASPP).
Last year we increased the number of Transitional Kindergarten classes offered throughout the district, reduced student-to-teacher ratios in all of our Transitional Kindergarten through 3rd grade classes to a school average of 24:1, added a counselor at all of our middle schools, provided additional staff members at our three Title I schools in order to provide direct support to students and families, implemented a new math curriculum, and hired additional personnel within the Maintenance and Operations Department in order to keep our schools beautiful and well-maintained.
This year we launch our new elementary music education program for every Kindergarten through 5th grade student. We will provide an upgraded wireless network infrastructure at every site, introduce a new Student Management System, implement a new K-5 English Language Arts curriculum, and complete construction on a new elementary school in West Roseville.
We will continue to invest in our children by investing in the people, programs, and infrastructure of our great district. I hope each of you has a wonderful start to the 2016-17 school year.
