Donate to the Redwood City Education Foundation (RCEF). The RCEF is an all-volunteer non-profit organization that raises private money to provide enrichment programs to all students in the Redwood City School District. The RCEF's funding focuses on the arts (including music), academic achievement, wellness programs and instructional innovation through SMART grants.
Currently, the Trustees are elected in “at-large” elections, meaning that each member of the governing board is elected by the registered voters across the school district. Under a “by-trustee” area elections system, distinct geographic electoral trustee areas within the school district will be formed and each trustee area elects one Board member.
The Redwood City School District (RCSD) Board of Education (BOE) seeks the input of the school district’s community as its five members transition from an “at-large” elections process to one in which they will be elected by voters “by-trustee-area.” One of the first steps for the transition is to seek community input regarding the makeup of potential trustee areas.

Welcome to the McKinley Institute of Technology (MIT), a small traditional middle school housed in a beautiful historical building that has been transformed into a technology-learning hub for sixth through eighth grade students. We provide a safe and supportive learning environment where we identify and address each student’s individual needs.
In the backyard of Google and Facebook— and in the midst of Silicon Valley—middle school students are experiencing hands-on learning with coding, keyboarding, and expanded uses of technology while also receiving instruction in core subjects, and offering a variety of elective choices. We also have the resources to provide the students with a chromebook at the start of every year that they can use for instruction a home and at school.
Our school’s smaller size facilitates a supportive learning community for students, whose teachers can take the time to get to know each of their students as individuals and work closely with their parents in order to best facilitate their child’s success in school. We extend this consideration through McKinley’s after school program, YMCA, which provides a safe and caring place for students to complete homework, learn, and have fun.
McKinley thrives because of our strong committed staff members and parent groups that are focused on the success of every child. McKinley also recognizes the importance of giving students a voice in their education, through Student Council and their elective / explorative classes.
