- Guiding Principles
Welcome to Roseburg Public Schools! As superintendent I pledge that our district will stand as a model of excellence in education and will maintain high expectations for classroom achievement and behavior, while providing assistance for those students who need alternative approaches to learning. At the same time, we also recognize our responsibility to educate Roseburg’s children to become productive citizens who have the skills and the emotional intelligence to meet the requirements of a work world that doesn’t even exist yet.
As parents, please understand that you play an absolutely essential role in your children’s schooling experience, and we ask you to partner with us to set high expectations for your children’s academic success. A parent’s expectation of success becomes a propelling force to motivate a child. Simply put, when children aren’t expected to do well, most often they don’t. So please don’t accept mediocre grades and poor study habits; rather, get involved and insist on better performance. There are many ways to do this, such as by supervising homework, fostering reading at home, limiting TV and video games, and talking with your child about the importance of education.
We urge you to also set high expectations for Roseburg Public Schools. We welcome your involvement, your support, and even your criticism, because we recognize that constructive criticism can help us to improve. Specifically, please get involved with your children’s schoolwork and tell us right away about any possible problems – for example, whether homework is too easy or too difficult. And most importantly, get to know your child’s teacher and form a partnership on behalf of your student.
We, all of us in Roseburg Public Schools, look forward to working with you to achieve educational excellence for your child. Please don’t hesitate to speak to me or another administrator about how we’re doing.
Dr. Larry C. Parsons
