High School Updates from Blue Oaks NA Meeting

On Wednesday, February 22, 2012, about 75 members attended a meeting of the Blue Oaks Neighborhood Association. BONA President David Larson had invited Roseville Joint Unified High School District (RJUHSD) Board members to discuss the high school status in the West Roseville area. RJUHSD officials attending included Steve Williams, Scott Huber, and Ron Sieverson.

BONA members expressed their concerns over the school district boundaries and having children bussed to Roseville High School when Woodcreek High School is closer. School board members responded that boundaries were redrawn eight years ago when Antelope High School opened. All of the high schools are now full except Oakmont High School (where our WestPark – Fiddyment Farm students are now bussed).

Parents told of the difficulties having students from Cooley Middle School sent to three high schools, splitting up friendships at a sensitive time in teenagers’ lives. The school board responded it receives over 1,600 transfer requests each year, but the transfers must be based on legitimate educational reasons, not separated friends. If a transfer is granted, it does not guarantee that the student will end up in a closer school.

Assistant Superintendent Ron Silverson said the new high school to be built in the West Roseville Specific Plan, originally projected to open in 2013, is not expected to open now until 2017, based on the declining housing sales and economic downturn. They don’t expect to address changing boundaries until closer to the new high school’s opening.
