Engage with Our Superintendent

All community members benefit from the success of their local public schools. RCSD encourages community members to learn more about district strategic work by engaging with our Superintendent. 

Why should all community members, including non-parents, get involved?

The answer lies in the understanding that a strong educational system benefits everyone. When schools thrive, communities thrive. Here's why:

Economic Prosperity:

Businesses benefit from having a skilled workforce, which is cultivated through quality education. By supporting our schools, we invest in the future workforce and economic stability of our own local community.

Social Cohesion:

Schools are not just educational institutions; they are hubs of community life. Strong schools foster a sense of belonging and unity among all residents. Engaging with schools allows community members to build connections, strengthen social bonds, and create a more cohesive society.

Property Values:

Schools are a cornerstone of desirable neighborhoods. Property values are often influenced by the reputation and performance of local schools. By actively participating in school committees and supporting educational initiatives, community members can help maintain or increase property values within the district.

Civic Responsibility:

Education is essential for nurturing informed and engaged citizens. By supporting schools, community members contribute to the development of future leaders, problem-solvers, and active participants in democracy. A well-educated community is better equipped to address societal challenges and drive positive change.

By investing in our schools, we invest in the prosperity, cohesion, and future of our Redwood City community as a whole.
