Inspiring District Initiatives
We’ve hit the middle mark of our school year and Roseville Area Schools are filled with events and activity. I want to draw your attention to some inspiring initiatives that are currently underway. District staff and community members are deeply involved in each of these efforts and our students are experiencing direct benefits.
- Long-Range Facilities Planning: Since August, we have been convening meetings of staff, parents, students, and community members who are interested in ensuring our buildings continue to meet the needs of our students and staff. Please visit our Facilities Planning webpage to read about the work of the Options Committee.
- Partners for the Future: Roseville Area Schools is building partnerships with individuals and organizations to build a stronger, healthier, more engaged community. Become a mentor. Inspire a young reader. Create career connections for our youth. We invite you to check out our Partners for the Future webpage about our initiative and how you can participate.
- Reimagine Minnesota: On February 8, Roseville Area Schools collaborated with St. Paul Public Schools and St. Anthony-New Brighton School District to host an evening focused on addressing integration, access, opportunity, and educational achievement. More than 200 community members, staff members, and students from the three districts participated in in-depth discussions around topics such as, “Describe your vision of an equitable, integrated, and excellent education for all students.” This event was the first of many similar collaborative events that will take place around the Twin Cities as part of the work of 42 school districts that have come together to develop a collective education plan for new local and statewide policies and practices.
It’s an exciting time to be a part of Roseville Area Schools and I know that we have our community to thank for sustaining a positive environment in which our students learn and grow.
