Save The Dates This Week

A full house attended RUSD UCR’s STEM High School Project meeting last Thursday.

The neighbors all agree STEM is great and everyone should have access to STEM classes.

Neighbors and students comprised most of the crowd. The  questions asked were articulate and from perspectives that clearly were never imagined by staff in the planning process for this educational collaboration.

None of the School Board Members were in attendance at this meeting. That’s why we need to show up again on Monday night.

If you think School Bond Money IS Being Misspent on STEM HS on UCR Campus,
Show Up For November 5, 2018 RUSD SCHOOL BOARD MEETING and COMMENT!

The RUSD School Board’s ONLY November meeting is Monday, November 5, 2018, beginning at 4:30 p.m. It begins with “Public Input on Closed Session Matters” followed by an Open Session at 6:30 p.m. unless otherwise noted.

Presumably 6:30 begins the Open Session at which public comments can be made. Come with 6 copies of any written comments for board members and staff, or just come with oral comments.

SHOW UP TO KEEP THE MOMENTUM ABOUT WATKINS DRIVE BEING THE WRONG LOCATION FOR A THREE-STORY STEM SCHOOL GOING! All meetings will take place at the Riverside Adult School, Board Room, 6735 Magnolia Avenue, Riverside, unless otherwise noted.

There’s no note the November meeting is somewhere else, so that’s the location.

Please, once more, tell them what we love about living in the neighborhood of our dreams.

Don’t forget, Thursday November 8 is the UNA monthly meeting. Watch for the agenda.

RUSD UCR Hold Meeting For New STEM High School Project

Save The Date! Tuesday September 25, 2018

It’s time to get informed and organized. It’s critical to show up and bring your questions.

This project will alter the fabric of the neighborhood. It will bring traffic that cannot be mitigated.
So it’s up to us to drive the conversation about mitigation.

Riverside Unified School District and UCR will be holding the first of two community meetings to discuss the proposed RUSD STEM High School on Tuesday, September 25.

 The meeting will be held at 6:00 pm in room J-102 of the Bannockburn Village, located at 3637 Canyon Crest Dr, Riverside, CA 92507

The Regents of the University of California, on behalf of UC Riverside are partnering with the Riverside Unified School District (RUSD) to propose a ground lease of University-owned Glen Mor Intramural Fields on East Campus for the purpose of constructing a new RUSD STEM High School serving grades 9 through 12.

UCR STEM High School Site Proposal

The RUSD STEM High School will be a magnet school for 800 students (half full-time and half part-time) who are pursuing their interests and aptitudes in areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

The High School would consist of classrooms, administrative office space, a multi-use discovery center, fabrication lab, food service, lecture facilities, a fitness center, outdoor learning areas and associated parking and circulation.

There will be a follow up meeting on November 1st.
