Welcome to the Roseburg School District
New Superintendent Search
Our current superintendent, Dr. Larry Parsons, will be retiring at the conclusion of the 2014-15 school year. Roseburg Public Schools has contracted with an executive search firm, Window to Leadership, to assist with the process of recruiting a new superintendent. District administration and the Roseburg School Board believe it is essential our Roseburg community members and district employees have an opportunity to express their opinions during this process. To facilitate this, a link has been established to a survey. The responses to this survey will be presented to our school board at the January 28, 2015 board meeting. This will help our board determine the most critical characteristics necessary as they consider applicants for the superintendent position. Take a few minutes to complete the survey and add your voice to this process. Thank you for helping our district to be the very best it can be.
The Online Survey is now closed.

Emergency Closure Notice
REMINDER TO UPDATE TELEPHONE NUMBERS TO RECEIVE “ONE CALL NOW” MESSAGES
The arrival of fall reminds us that in a few months inclement weather or dangerous road conditions might cause us to need to use our One-Call Now telephone system for contacting parents. With One Call Now we can contact parents personally and relatively quickly when school must be delayed or closed because of weather conditions (or for any other important announcement). Parents who wish to receive One Call Now messages will want to alert their student’s school of any changes to their home or cell phone numbers.
Information about school delays or closures will still be available through local television and radio media, as well as on our district website (www.roseburg.k12.or.us) under the quick link titled Emergency Info. Decisions about school delays or cancellations because of inclement weather are made by 5:30 a.m. each morning when weather or road conditions are an issue. However, signing up to be a part of the One Call Now telephone system is the best way to ensure you receive information every time we need to get an important message to you immediately. Please don’t hesitate to contact your school’s principal or Roseburg Public Schools at (541)440-4014 if you have any questions.
Also, if Roseburg Public Schools must be delayed on a Wednesday, the regular weekly Early Release schedule will be cancelled and schools will end the school day at their normal afternoon times.

Roseburg Public Schools to Begin All-Day Kindergarten in 2015
At the February 12, 2014, School Board meeting, directors voted to begin all-day kindergarten district-wide effective with the 2015-2016 school year. In preparation for the shift to all-day kindergarten beginning in the fall of 2015, and in recognition that the all-day kindergarten experience for children should be uniquely different from our current model, staff will spend the next several months planning for the transition from half-day to all-day classes. That transition will include the hiring of approximately 10 new kindergarten teachers, the creation of new classrooms in every Roseburg elementary school, and the development and implementation of a robust and effective curriculum for all kindergarten classes district-wide.
This is a great opportunity to give all our youngsters a first-class start to their schooling experience!

Roseburg Public Schools Adopts Collaboration Time Schedule
Roseburg Public Schools Board of Directors has adopted a school calendar that will release students one hour early each Wednesday during the school year. During these Wednesdays teachers and other staff will work together with the intense focus of improving student achievement by discussing curriculum and teaching practices, and by allowing staff time to work in collaboration to improve the quality of the learning experience for students. This weekly Collaboration Time mirrors models already in place in several school districts in Douglas County and around Oregon.Click here for more information.
