SAFETY OF OUR STUDENTS AND STAFF, CONTINUES TO BE OUR #1 PRIORITY

The Rosemead School District has an excellent team of employees who work together to ensure the safety of our students and staff as our #1 priority.

As the long-term Superintendent of the Rosemead School District, I am blessed to work with a wonderfully competent and caring group of professionals.

The Rosemead School District Administrators, Staff and Board of Trustees will continue to reassure you, our parents that your children - our students’ safety will continue to be our #1 priority.  We continue to research, explore and implement new technologies to assist with campus security.  In addition, our professional development days (pupil free days) have not only been used to increase teacher and staff development in curriculum and instructional strategies; these days have also been used to train staff in disaster and emergency preparedness including active shooter scenarios. 

We are all here for the best interest of all "our" children.  Next school year, we will continue to launch more staff trainings in the area of safety and security of our children and campuses. 

I have met and meet with our City Chief of Police and City Manager on a regular basis.  We continue to work closely as a team.

Thank you to our staff for their countless hours of dedication and support to the Rosemead Community and families.  Thank you to our parents and community who support our security measures on campuses with a single point of entry and the fingerprinting and security checks of volunteers.


NEW NETFLIX SERIES – CONTAINING SENSITIVE THEMES, “THIRTEEN REASONS WHY”

Our staff, parents and guardians should be aware about a new television series with a sensitive theme that is expected to be popular with teenagers. The series is based on a 2007 bestselling novel with the same Netflix title, "Thirteen Reasons Why."

The topics covered in this book are: adolescent bullying, rejection, heartbreak, sexual assault, abuse, revenge, depression, and desperate but unsuccessful efforts to find help or understanding. These topics are depicted as many of the reasons for the character's suicide at the end of the series. Series like this can be difficult to watch and could trigger feelings of distress in viewers.

In the event your student chooses to view this Netflix series, parents and guardians may wish to discuss some of the issues mentioned above or may need support in discussing such issues. Although Netflix opened all 13 episodes for continuous viewing, metered viewing is advised to allow time to process and discuss themes and feelings that may arise.

I am notifying all staff: at each site administrators, counselors and teachers in the Rosemead School District about this new series.  I have recently been informed of this series and as always, I want to keep you informed of the matters that can affect our students.

Our administrators, counselors and teachers are a resource for all students and parents.  If parents have questions about how to have conversations with their students, the counseling team in collaboration with our administration is always available for parents and students.

If our parents and guardians would like to read more about this book/series, you can use these two resources: 

 Note: The intention of this message is not to recommend viewing this Netflix series; rather, it is intended to provide you with relevant information to the health and wellbeing of all RSD students and families.

    ACCOUNTABILITY REPORTS AND MUSCATEL MIDDLE SCHOOL 

    A growing body of research shows that positive school climate is a key lever of students’ academic and social development and success.  An alliance of California Schools through REL West has published information and research on middle school environments.  At Muscatel Middle School, we believe that the academic results are related to the Leader in Me (LIM) Program, Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) and outstanding staff and instructional curricular resources and assessments available to keep staff informed of student progress.  PowerSchool parent portal allows parents to view the progress of their child or children both academically, attendance wise and other.  Our teachers with emails and classroom phones have ease of communication with our parents. 

    Below you will find the latest state Smarter Balance test score information for Muscatel Middle School who is also working on a 1:1 Chrome book initiative with our students.

    Muscatel

    In the past 10 years, there has been no shortage of research studies on specific technologies and their impact on student knowledge and skills; a trio of studies cited by Goodwin (20100) highlights this inconsistency in measuring overall effect of Michigan’s one-to-one program.  So, giving all students laptops or other devices may not translate to better student achievement, but we believe it does couple with our specific software programs in our schools.  I believe that successful use of technology tools and programs comes down to how they are used. 

    Despite current research or the lack of evidence that technology improves learning, we know that learning the 21st century skills that students need to succeed in the global economy require s the use of technology.  The Partnership for 21st Century Learning defines Information, Media and Technology Sills as one set of necessary skills – and technology support the learning of their others which includes Critical Thinking and Problem Solving, Communication and Collaboration, and Creativity and Innovation (www.p21.org).
