Rowland Heights – The Rowland Unified School District announced it will launch its District Climate Survey once again, where the community can provide valuable feedback on programs and services the District provides. This recurring survey provides data responses that assist during planning and review of District operations and educational services. The District also announced that it will hold information meetings this month for parents to learn more about the Common Core State Standards, how it will impact their child, and will share the implementation efforts made in RUSD.
To participate in the online survey (also available in Chinese, Korean and Spanish), the community can visit the “Your Voice” section of the District website (www.RowlandSchools.org) and on every school website. It is also located on the free Rowland Unified School District “Mobile App” available for iOS and Android phones/devices. The District Climate Survey is available now through Jan. 30. Individuals who do not have access to computers may visit any RUSD school to take the survey online, or visit the District Office located at 1830 S. Nogales Street in Rowland Heights. The district phone number is (626) 965-2541. The results from the survey will be shared with the community in the “Your Voice” section on the District website in the Spring.
Parents and interested community members are also invited to attend an informational meeting about the Common Core State Standards that will be implemented next year. The next meeting date is Wednesday, Jan. 22 at Giano Intermediate in the Multipurpose Room (located at 3223 S. Giano Avenue, West Covina 91792). For additional resources and information about the Common Core, a Parent Common Core Toolbox with videos and handouts is located on each RUSD school website or at http://www.RowlandSchools.org.
