A Season of Transition 

As April graces us with warmer days and longer sunshine, we find ourselves in another season of change. While families anticipate transitions from one grade to the next, with many middle schoolers stepping up to high school, our dedicated staff gears up for the final stretch of the academic year.

After a well-deserved spring break, students and staff are preparing for state testing, which includes the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP). These standardized assessments in English Language Arts, math, and science (for 5th and 8th graders) align with California Common Core State Standards, providing valuable insights into student progress and guiding instruction. Educators, schools, and the district then use these assessment results to evaluate student performance, identify areas for improvement, and inform instructional practices.

To help your child feel prepared, encourage them to rest well, fuel up with a nutritious breakfast, approach the tests with confidence, and do their best. For extra practice, explore practice tests together and reassure them that giving their all is all that matters – we’re already proud of their hard work!

A major component of how we ensure our students excel is by effectively staffing our sites and programs to support all students. This sometimes means an increase in staffing needs, so we’re actively seeking individuals of strong character who are caring, competent, and compassionate. If you or someone you know fits the bill, explore our open positions at EdJoin.org/RCSDK8!

As we navigate this season of transition together, our focus remains on supporting students to finish the year strong. Your continued partnership in education is the backbone of our success as a district community. Thank you!

A new year signifies a blank slate and an opportunity to start fresh with goals. While most feel a renewed sense of purpose with a new calendar year, those of us in education acknowledge our year really starts with the school year. January is the time when both of those calendars come together. As we welcome 2019, our district is already preparing for the 2019 – 2020 school year. Yes, that’s right! It’s time to enroll new, returning and transferring students.

As we “fall” into a new school year routine and a new season, I am feeling extra thankful to lead a school district full of eager and ready-to-be challenged students and staff. What more could I ask for?

Our families, staff and school board members create a community of schools, making each day a valuable opportunity for our more than 11,000 students to shine. This fall, while I give thanks to the familiar faces I get to work alongside every day, I am pleased to welcome two new school board members who will join our hard-working and dedicated team of RCSD Champions.

The Roseville City School District community of students, staff, parents, and guardians is growing! Your child spends so much of their time with us, learning, creating and growing every day. This requires enough resources to sustain their curiosity, desire to learn and provide the facilities needed to support all our students. Here is a snapshot of our District by the numbers:
