Meet Our Roseville City School District  Board of Education
The mission of the Roseville City School District is to maximize learning for each and every one of our students. It is our goal to provide the best possible educational program to meet the needs of all students attending our schools. We all have a responsibility to see that those needs are met through quality instruction for students of all abilities. The basic educational program has been, and will continue to be, stressed in the formation of the District’s policies, programs, and projects. We have a five-member school board, one of which serves as president of the Board for one year and one serves as clerk of the Board for one year. 

Get to know each member of our hard-working school board!

Child Nutrition Update
Do you qualify for free or reduced price meal?
We know there are more students who qualify for free or reduced priced meals than those who apply. In the Roseville City School District, if a student qualifies for reduced-price meals, they will automatically receive free meals. It's also important for parents and students to know that there is no identifying information as to which students receive free meals. Our lunchroom staff, school staff, and classmates are not aware of a child's meal status. For more information and an application, click here!

Eat Right! Save Money! Save Time!
RCSD provides school meals that make a great alternative to the traditional sack lunch. We take great care in selecting and preparing our meals for students, so students will have a variety of grains, fruits, vegetables, protein, and low-fat dairy. In addition, we work closely with The Life Time Foundation, and most of our menu items meet their specific nutritional requirements. Learn more about our nutrition program here.

Principal Spotlight
Erin Peterson
Blue Oaks Elementary School

I began a career in education... as a sixth-grade teacher, then taught middle school math, and spent a year as a teacher on special assignment before becoming principal at Blue Oaks Elementary. I have been with the Roseville City School District for 15 years!

I became an educator because... I had many amazing teachers that always inspired me as a learner. As I was growing up, I wanted to do the same for others and give back to the same community where I was raised, which happens to be Roseville (I attended K-6th grades in the  Roseville City School District). My passion is watching children grow and succeed academically, socially, and emotionally. Building relationships with students and helping them achieve their goals makes going to work exciting each and every day!

My favorite Blue Oaks tradition... is our monthly school sings. The entire school comes together and recognizes students for exemplifying character traits while spending time singing and dancing to a variety of songs. It is such a fun and uplifting start to the morning and builds a positive school community on our campus.

I went to college at... Sacramento State University for my BA in Liberal Studies, Teaching Credential and MA in Education with an emphasis in Curriculum and Instruction.

In my spare time... I love spending time with friends and family, including my sixth-month-old son, being outdoors whether it is hiking, boating, swimming or camping, shopping, and playing cards or board games.

Keep up with Mrs. Peterson and the Blue Oaks Bears on Facebook!

Facilities Update
Have you ever found yourself thinking “It’s always something!"? Our school buildings need upkeep just like our homes, cars, and workplaces. Our facilities teams are consistently working to making sure our schools are maintained so our students and staff can be comfortable, safe, and have pride in their school. A few projects they worked on this summer include: 
  • New lower grade playground at Vencil Brown 
  • New portable classrooms at Orchard Ranch to accommodate growth
  • New flooring in the library at Stoneridge
  • Completion of the STEAM Wing at Stoneridge
  • Replacement of roofing at Vencil Brown
  • Removing tree roots that cause tripping hazards
The Roseville City School District Foundation is excited to announce that Partners in Education (PIE) Grants will be offered and awarded at the November RCSD Board meeting! 

Our commitment to music education for every student is going strong! We donated $25,000 to the District to purchase supplies and equipment for the District’s music program. The District was able to purchase ukuleles, percussion sets, 
boomwhackers, mallets, chimes, digital pianos, alto saxophones, tenor saxophones, flutes, recorders, xylophones, metallophones, wide bar glockenspiel, bongos, a snare cajon, digital music subscriptions, music curriculum, books and magazines, risers, a chair dolly and rugs/carpet... PHEW!  This is all possible through the generous community support through fundraising events such as our Run4Roseville and the Comfort Food Cook-Off.

Superintendent's Corner
Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! This is one of my favorite times of year because in the month of August, we welcome our students and families, new and returning, to their classroom homes across RCSD. 

Summer ushers in new families to our community and school district. I want to extend a warm welcome to these new members of our community and say how much I look forward to seeing the growth that will transpire in the following months. Our District continues to grow, both in numbers and by schools, and it is a top priority of mine to find 
balance in this growth. With new students comes an additional need for classes, teachers, facilities, and resources. You can rest assured knowing each student will be equipped with the resources they need to be safe, academically challenged, and socially prepared for their next steps. 

Speaking of growth, our newest member of the RCSD family, a fresh elementary school in West Roseville, has officially been named! Planned for tentative construction in 2022, the campus will help support our growing community by providing access to facilities and resources our students need and deserve. The District accepted naming submissions from the public for the school. During the six-week submission period, the district received 15 suggestions that proposed namesakes of local landmarks, a famous scientist, and historical individuals who have made contributions to the City. While the decision was tough, you can now say a hearty “Welcome!” to Riego Creek Elementary! Riego Creek will accommodate 800 students at full capacity and will include indoor and outdoor learning spaces, flexible learning space, and a dedicated music room on a 10-acre site, adjacent to a city park. 

The 2018-2019 school year comes with more new and exciting developments to help us continue our legacy of excellence in education. We have transitioned our schedule to align with the Roseville Joint Union High School District, which will help the District and families more easily coordinate academic calendars, bus schedules, 
and other like-activities.

There will always be changes and transitions happening in RCSD, but the one thing that will never change is our commitment and passion for educating the bright young minds of our RCSD Champions.
