I have no skin in the game (my kids have already gone through the school system) but I live in the community and am really tired of seeing the Stand signs still up. We get it. You don’t know like charter schools. Or you don’t like THIS charter school. You want your neighbors to put their kids in the school your kids go to. We got it! We got your message a year and a half ago when you first put the signs in your yard. Are you going to leave them up for ten years? And now you’re putting… Read more »

Signs, magnets, flyers–none of it matters. RVC is a wonderful, thriving school despite all of it. My children are so happy to go to school at RVC every day.

Mass exodus of teachers from White Hill. Isn’t it about time for an EXTERNAL unbiased survey (not one designed by StanDistrict*) of staff satisfaction and a 360 review of administration’s impact on teachers and site administrators….or is it more effective to just blame everything on RVC?

The mass exodus of teachers at WH were forced resignations. I know because one of them was my good friend and she was stunned! Went back to her empty classroom in shock and tears . She was one of the most loved teachers by the kids and very active in the community . She had many years of experience so was paid more but was reaching her third year in RVSD – and the district snips before tenure . It costs less to hire new teachers . We lost 2 – 7th grade science, Spanish, history ,8th grade math, 8th… Read more »

Also, if you are counting susie martone in your white hill teacher losses…. she was offered a job for a lot more money in the South Bay because she won so many chorus events with our white hill kids. Tech has more $ to pay our great teachers.
