Our Stories and Initiatives
RCSD welcomes its community, neighbors, and friends to learn more about the school district that serves our community's children. In this section, we tell the stories of our students, teachers, staff, programs, schools, and initiatives that make RCSD a great school district.
Reclassification is the process in which a student, who learns another language or languages at home before English, is initially classified as an English Learner (EL) and later demonstrates English language proficiency. In RCSD, students speak 37 different languages at home including Arabic, Mandarin, Polish, Russian, Samoan, Spanish, and Vietnamese.
Redwood City School District (RCSD) seeks applicants for three vacant seats in the Measure U Citizens Oversight Committee membership. The purpose of the Measure U Citizens Oversight Committee (COC) is to inform the public at least annually in a written report concerning the expenditure of the parcel tax proceeds.
It’s not uncommon for children to express that they don’t want to go to school at least once during their academic careers, but when it becomes a frequent phrase it can cause attendance issues, even chronic absenteeism, and struggles in the household.
Selection of California Distinguished Schools is made by the California Department of Education (CDE). Schools proved their resilience across the state as they faced unprecedented challenges in recent years.
The COVID-19 pandemic affected schools and student learning worldwide. The 2022 Dashboard provides valuable information to all schools about how the pandemic affected student learning, student engagement, and differences in outcomes for student groups, which is why RCSD will prioritize its MTSS work. The goal of MTSS is to intervene early to help individual students catch up with their classmates.
Trustee Cecilia Márquez returns for a second term to represent Area V while Mr. David Weekly will serve RCSD as a Trustee for the first time. Mr. Weekly will represent Area II after the retirement of Trustee María Díaz-Slocum who served RCSD children for 21 years. Ms. Márquez and Mr. Weekly will both serve four-year terms.
Díaz-Slocum wraps up 21 years of service as an RCSD Board of Trustees member–and five-time Board President–as she retires this month, but she leaves a lasting legacy. Raised many years in Redwood City, working as a beloved public librarian, and an RCSD staple, she has touched many lives of those in the community and made many meaningful connections.
RCSD’s Board of Trustees recognized CNS for its efforts and flexibility in serving children well-rounded meals in times of high need and change, particularly over the course of the past three years.
