Rochester Public Schools is committed to providing opportunities for all students to realize their potential. We are committed to building relationships and developing a sense of ownership within the entire community to improve student learning experiences. 

As such, we want to hear your thoughts on our school calendar. Specifically, we are considering adopting an earlier start to the school year - before Labor Day. We have considered the earlier start because this provides additional time for the District to complete bigger construction projects that will begin in the Spring of 2019. We want to hear from you regarding your thoughts and questions around making this change. 

For the purposes of the Thoughtexchange questions Calendar 1 refers to a modified school calendar with a pre-Labor Day start and Calendar 2 refers to our current school calendar, starting after Labor Day. 

We would also like to recognize the Meet and Confer Committee which is a committee composed of the Rochester Education Association (REA) President, teachers, several principals, several cabinet members, a member of the Rochester Public Schools Board of Education, and the Superintendent. This committee brings forward suggestions from the teachers at each building. Along with discussing many different factors to build the best schedule possible for families and students. The committee is committed to reviewing our community's feedback so we can continue to improve upon our calendar.

Washington Elementary has been designated as a National Blue Ribbon School for 2017!








Greetings,

I am humbled to announce that Washington Elementary has been designated as a National Blue Ribbon School for 2017 by the U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos. Schools recognized as National Blue Ribbon Schools are “exemplary high performing schools.” The National Blue Ribbon Schools Program honors public and private elementary, middle and high schools where students achieve very high learning standards or are making notable improvements in closing achievement gaps. The award affirms the hard work of students, educators, families, and communities in creating safe and welcoming schools where students master challenging content.

Washington Elementary is one of 342 schools nation-wide, and one of 8 schools in the state of Minnesota, that will be recognized by the U.S. Department of Education in a ceremony on Nov. 6th and 7th  in Washington, D.C.

None of this would be possible without exceptional students, highly talented staff, and wonderfully engaged families at Washington Elementary. Congratulations to Principal Chad Schroeder and our entire Washington Elementary community. I look forward to celebrating with our students and staff very soon!

 

Michael Muñoz
Superintendent
