Every Student • Every Possibility • No Matter What
The mission of Santa Rosa City Schools, in partnership with parents, educators, staff, and the community is to provide active, involved learning for all students so they will achieve personal, academic, occupational success and become responsible citizens.
Santa Rosa City Schools is just beginning to assess the needs of our school community after the devastating fires. The best way to help right now is to donate money or gift cards. You can do that in two ways:
- Send checks or gift cards to Fiscal Services Office, Santa Rosa City Schools, 211 Ridgway Avenue, Santa Rosa, CA, 95401.
- Contribute using our PayPal link (the red "Donate with PayPal" button)
If you do not specify that the donation is for a particular school, we will make sure your donation goes to those in our district who need it. The need in our school community is unimaginable. Thank you for your donation!

Election change update The Board of Education has selected Map Scenario #4 for our district's new by-trustee area elections. See the Map Scenario on the by-trustee area elections webpage. Thank you for all of your comments and input in this process!
New calendar for next year The 2018-19 SRCS Instructional Calendar has been approved. Check the calendar for important dates, like Winter and Spring Break. School starts on August 15th!
New school phone numbers All of our schools and district offices are getting new phone numbers and phones, as part of a phone system upgrade paid for by Bond Measures I & L. Some schools have already received their new numbers, others will get them in early 2018. Principals will be sharing phone information with their schools. Schools will have a main phone number, and teachers and staff will have extensions. When you call a school, you will be able to use a directory to search for the person you want to find. Old numbers will forward all calls to the new numbers through the end of this school year.

G Suite for Education
SRCS is using an online collaboration system for schools called G Suite for Education. This includes document creation, email (within the school environment for younger students), collaboration tools, and thousands of learning applications. Students under 13 years old need signed permission from parents/guardians to enable their account. Students over 13 do not need permission, but parents can opt out for their student.

CA School Dashboard
The California Department of Education has a new website called the California School Dashboard, designed to look at multiple indicators of school success and track progress in those measures. Santa Rosa City Schools is called "Santa Rosa Elementary-High" on the Dashboard. Click on this link to our district's page. To search for a particular school, visit caschooldashboard.org, and enter the school name in the search box.
Brochures about the Dashboard, in English and Spanish, are available at our schools. For a quick introduction to the Dashboard, watch this video, shared by the Alameda County Office of Education:

Our Substitute Teachers are important partners in the education of our students. Santa Rosa City Schools invites substitute teachers who are interested in providing a continuum in our student's education and who value the safety of the student at all times. Link to More Information
