Online Parent and Staff Survey Regarding Superintendent Search is LIVE!

Leadership Associates, the firm coordinating the District's search for the next superintendent has provided us with this link to their online survey. The survey is confidential, brief, and important to their task of gathering input from our parents and staff members regarding the characteristics YOU want to see in the next RUSD superintendent. The survey questions were developed jointly by the members of our school board and the Leadership Associates advisors, in the hope of collecting as much data from our community as possible.

PTA Nominating Committee is looking for volunteers!
The RUSD PTA is looking for volunteers to serve on the PTA Nominating Committee which is responsible for nominating the District PTA slate of officers to be elected for the 2015/2016 school year.  These committee members should have a broad acquaintance with the membership and an understanding of the PTA organization's functions and purposes.  The nominating committee should consist of individuals from all three school sites and represent different geographic areas of our district.  This is a short-term commitment - 
only 3 meetings plus some phone and email time.  It is a great way to have a voice in PTA leadership.  If you would like to serve on the committee, please email Julie Soja at or call 415.518.1230.  Thank you!
