Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year.
The Board of Education and I would like to welcome you to the Roseville City School District and the 2018-19 school year. More than 11,000 TK – 8th grade children arrive every day ready to learn in one of our nineteen safe and caring schools. Teachers and classified staff work diligently to provide meaningful learning opportunities for every child, while engaged parents are active in their school communities. All indicators are pointing in positive directions for Roseville City.
Three years ago we added Transitional Kindergarten (TK) at all of our elementary schools, 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.
Two years ago we implemented a new elementary music education program for every Kindergarten – 5th grade student, provided an upgraded wireless network infrastructure at every site, introduced a new Student Management System (PowerSchool), implemented a new K-5 English Language Arts curriculum, and completed construction on Orchard Ranch Elementary School in West Roseville.
Last year we added high school-aligned Spanish language classes at all four middle schools as a means to provide additional learning opportunities, opened Orchard Ranch Elementary School to over 500 students, and hired additional personnel within the Technology Department to better serve our students and staff.
This year we’ve launched new district and school websites designed to improve communication with our parents and local community, partnered with Westpark Communities to submit plans for our next elementary school in West Roseville, and bolstered the Career Technical Education (CTE) pathways at each of our four middle schools, in partnership with the Roseville Joint Union High School District, through a $400,000 grant. The grant funds will be used to purchase new industry standard technology, machinery, tools, and materials in order to create more meaningful learning opportunities for our students as they prepare for college and career.
As a District, we will continue to invest in our children by investing in our people, programs, and infrastructure. We thank you for entrusting your children to our care. I hope each of you have a wonderful school year!
