|Message from the Superintendent|
The Robla School District is located in the North area of Sacramento. We are a small elementary district. Robla is surrounded by larger districts: Twin Rivers Unified School District on three sides and Natomas Unified School District on the other. Many people do not know that we exist. When I tell people that I am the superintendent of the Robla School District, the response I generally receive is "Where is that?" But those of us who live and work here are proud of our size. A good friend of mine once said, "Robla is small but mighty." That statement indeed sums up who we are in Robla. We are small - our current student enrollment is just under 2,000 students. Students attend one of five elementary schools: all have less than 500 students. We also have an exceptional preschool program which serves hundreds of children each day. This small size allows us to work together as a family. We are able to meet the unique needs of our students by getting to know who they are and by developing relationships with each of them and his or her family. Before I was selected as superintendent of the Robla School District, I was the principal of Main Avenue Elementary - one of the five elementary schools in Robla. I enjoyed many aspects of my job as principal, but my absolute favorite was the fact that I knew each student at my school by name. Our might comes from our employees. Our organization thrives on the hard work of teachers, classified employees, and administrators. They are truly dedicated to supporting our students.
If you are a parent of a Robla student or a potential parent, I suggest you spend time at your child's school. You will soon find that what I say about our employees is true. You will also find that our schools are safe and caring places for children. You can learn about how to support your child or how you can support his school by talking to his teacher. The principal of your child's school can also offer you ideas and suggestions. There are a very large variety of ways to become involved. Every school holds a many family events throughout the year. The dates for these events are published in school newsletters, and on this website. We also encourage parents to become leaders in our schools. Parent involvement is a high priority for all of us. Parents can help shape decisions by serving on School Site Council, English Learner Advisory Council or other decision-making bodies. Some schools have other parent clubs. The Robla Education Foundation, a non-profit organization which supports our schools also looks to parents to support their work.
If you are a potential employee or a member of the larger educational community, I invite you to find out more about Robla. Visit our schools and talk to employees and our families, I am confident that you will find that we are doing important work to help prepare our children for a successful future.
