Rancho Romero Vision
Rancho Romero is a community of learners joined together in a nurturing and safe environment. All staff members are committed to providing students with the tools to become productive and responsible citizens of the Twenty-first Century. It is essential that our students acquire skills in gathering, organizing, and analyzing information as well as developing skills in critical thinking and problem solving. Students will have access to modern technology and use these tools in their everyday lives. They must be able to express themselves through written and oral communication as well as the arts. Students need to be actively engaged in both mental and physical activities to keep their minds and bodies healthy and fit. Parents and community members take an active role in supporting and encouraging all members of the school population. The teachers, support staff, and parents work together to prepare students for the future with high expectations for all and a unified commitment to education.
IMPORTANT: New SRVUSD Volunteer Requirements
SRVUSD is implementing a new system for all adults who wish to volunteer on a school campus or drive/chaperone day and overnight field trips and athletic events. This new Volunteer Management System features a web-based software application that allows the District and all schools to better track and provide the appropriate level of clearance for school volunteers.
ALL adult volunteers will need to go through this new process. The District will NOT be asking parents to incur any of the costs associated with these clearance processes. For more information, and to begin the application process, click here (http://www.srvusd.net/parents/volunteers).
