Schedule announced for Rockvale High, Rocky Fork Elementary rezoning meetings

NOTE: This FAQ will be updated as new information becomes available

 

ROCKVALE HIGH SCHOOL

 

When does the school open?

August 2019

 

When will the rezoning take place?

The school board and director of schools will discuss this issue at special-called board meetings that are open to the public. 

 

SCHEDULE:

  • Blackman High School                October 25, 2018               6:30 P.M.
  • Siegel High School                      November 8, 2018             6:30 P.M.
  • Stewarts Creek High School        December 3, 2018             6:30 P.M.

 

When the rezoning takes place, must my student change high schools?

As part of the rezoning plan, the School Board will decide whether any grandfather options will be available. 

 

Will state highway 99 be widened? Will the new road cutting through to the backside of the high school connect with 99?

 

Highway 99 will be widened and longer turning lanes will be installed. This will allow for more vehicle stacking. There will be an access road from the internal roadway system out to Thompson Road. However, there will not be a direct road from Highway 99 to Thompson Road.

 

Who is the principal of the new school? When can we expect to see job postings for the new school?

 

A principal will likely be chosen later this semester. Once this person is in place, the principal will then begin the task of hiring a staff. Interested candidates are always encouraged to connect with the district’s human resources department. RCS will host its annual job fair at Blackman High School on Saturday, Feb. 23 from 9–11 a.m.

 

Is there a drawing or image of what the new school will look like?

Rockvale High School will be very similar to the design used for Stewarts Creek High School.
