Celebrating 150 Years

Established in 1869, the Roseville City School District (RCSD) is celebrating 150 years of inspiring and educating the youngest minds in Roseville, CA. From the Gilded Age to the Information Age, our commitment and focus has always been child-centered. 

We invite you, the members of the community, to join us in this yearlong pursuit as we honor the heritage and achievements of our alumni, staff, and students. Throughout the school year, we will be commemorating our District's heritage with one of a kind events, digital time capsules, and school site spotlighting to honor where we've come and where we're going.

Please share your ideas, photos, and stories with us here, and don't forget to include our new hashtag #RCSD150 in all of your anniversary posts.


RCSD in the News
We've spread the word on traffic safety. Watch Cooley's Principal Karen Calkin's interview with KCRA.

RCSD's sesquicentennial is a major, yearlong celebration. Read more on our 150 years in the Roseville Press Tribune and in West Roseville News.


Safety Reminder
When our heads are down, we miss a lot. Preventable car accidents spike with the Back-to-School rush, and distracted driving is at unprecedented levels. With more than 30,000 Roseville area students heading back to school in August, we’re asking parents to do this ONE thing: Put the phone away. We can all improve our safety.

Principal Spotlight
Jessica Brooks
Stoneridge Elementary School
How and when did you begin your career in education?
I began my career in education accidentally. I had been doing marketing for an online education company when a principal asked me if I was interested in a long-term substitute position teaching Spanish at a middle school. Let's just say, I said, "Yes", and the rest is history. 

What led you to become an educator?
I have always loved children and wanted to work with them. My original career goal was to become a pediatrician. Clearly, that didn't quite work out, but I am still helping and working with kids. It was meant to be! 

What is your favorite Stoneridge tradition?
I cannot say there is one tradition I like the most. There are many events and activities that have been happening since the opening of the school, and some that are newer. All of them make Stoneridge a strong community rich with tradition.

What are your favorite hobbies?
My favorite hobbies are watching my kids play sports, driving my kids to sports, playing sports with my kids. Ha! Kidding, kind of. On a serious note, my favorite hobbies are doing anything active and spending time with my family.
Come grow with us! RCSD is hiring, and we want you to join the family.

Woodbridge Parking Update

Our Woodbridge Woodchuck families would like to give a shout out to @the Grounds! They have been allowing our families to park alongside the fairgrounds on Niles Avenue, which has been a big help to our families and staff. We even took advantage of their generous offer during Back to School Night!

Each year, RCSDF works to raise awareness and funds to support elementary music education and STEAM classroom grants for teachers. Through community support and events, all money raised goes directly into RCSD classrooms to benefit our kids. The Foundation has two signature fundraisers planned for the 2019-20 school year.

Mark your calendars and save the date for our third annual Comfort Food Cook-off on January 24, 2020. Enjoy an evening full of delicacies prepared by principals, teachers, and parents from each school site to raise money to support music education. Then, get ready for our annual Run4Roseville Schools on April 26, 2020. Enjoy a morning of healthy family fun along with the fan-favorite Principal Dash. See you at the starting line!

Facilities Update
Our Facilities Department works hard to beautify and maintain our school sites, such as laying fresh asphalt at Cirby to keep our play spaces safe for students (below).
But the makeovers don't stop there. At Fiddyment Farm, new portables received fresh carpeting, ready to welcome students for the 2019-20 school year (below)!
Superintendent's Corner

One hundred and fifty. 150. Sesquicentennial. No matter how you say it, it’s what we are celebrating during the 2019-2020 school year!

For 150 years, Roseville City School District has been inspiring and educating the youngest minds in Roseville. RCSD began modestly in 1869 with 44 students. In the last 150 years, we have grown to an impressive 11,500+ students. From the Gilded Age to the Information Age, our commitment and focus has always been child-centered. Throughout the year, we will be celebrating where we were and where we’re going. We invite you, the members of the community, to join us in this yearlong recognition as we honor the heritage and achievements of our alumni, staff, and students. Please share your ideas, photos, and stories with us at and remember to tag your photos and posts online with #RCSD150 to help spread celebratory cheer.

As Roseville continues to become a destination for young families, our enrollment continues to climb. Welcoming these new families and students means the construction of new schools like Riego Creek Elementary in Phase II of the Fiddyment Ranch neighborhood. While the District coordinates all the moving parts associated with our growth and new school openings, it’s essential that we keep parents and guardians informed. With growth and new schools, comes the need to adjust the attendance boundaries of Orchard Ranch Elementary School and Fiddyment Farm Elementary School for the 2020-2021 school year. We invite impacted families to our Boundary Information Nights to learn more.
Join us Monday, September 16th at 6:00 PM at Orchard Ranch or Monday, September 23rd at 6:00 PM at Fiddyment Farm to learn more about the attendance boundary changes and Riego Creek Elementary School. We’ll also make the information available on our website: I look forward to seeing you soon!
