What We Do
The Roseburg Public Schools' Superintendent is hired by the Board. The Superintendent acts as the Board's executive officer in administering its pollicies for operation of the school. The Superintendent is available to the Board as a professional consultant and advises the Board on the needs and programs of the schools. In responding to public concerns or input, the Board usually acts through the Superintendent and Administrative Staff.
Welcome to the 2014-2015 School Year
Welcome to Roseburg Public Schools! On behalf of our nearly 650 dedicated teachers, support staff, and administrators, we commit to being a school district that consistently maintains high expectations for classroom achievement and behavior. At the same time, we also recognize our responsibility to respectfully 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.

Families wishing their child to attend Roseburg Public Schools are required to complete a Request for Nonresident Student Admission Interdistrict Transfer with Mutual Consent of Both Affected Districts form. As per school board Policy JECB: Request for Transfer of Resident Students and Admission of Non-resident Students.
School Board policy stipulates admission of non-resident students shall be for a period not to exceed the current academic year of application, and admission must be renewed annually for each student on their own form.
ALL students applying for a Resident District Transfer must complete this form.
The form must be completed, signed and dated by the student's parent or guardian, then returned to Patty Boggs in the Office of the Superintendent, 1419 NW Valley View Drive, Roseburg OR 97471 for processing prior to the student's ability to register in the requested non-resident school.
Families living within the Roseburg attendance boundaries requesting their students attend another district must begin the Request for Nonresident Student Admission Interdistrict Transfer process with the district that you would like to attend.

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.
