The Goals

Guiding Principles


The Roseville Joint Union High School District is committed to the following guiding principles:

Students are the center of everything we do. Our district will change and adapt to best serve our students.
Students will experience in school what they are likely to experience after graduation through work that requires them to solve problems and to apply learned skills and behaviors in real-life situations.
Students will be guided and supported by valued staff members who seek, develop, and implement successful practices and innovative ideas.
Students will be served through a process of continuous assessment and improvement that requires and values the active participation and contributions of students, parents, staff, and other stakeholders.
Students will be provided with a safe and supportive learning environment that involves the active participation of the educational staff, students, parents, and community members.
Students will be served through the continuous improvement of communications and working relationships with all district customers.
The Roseville Joint Union High School District serves the needs of nearly 10,000 students representing communities in both Placer and Sacramento counties. RJUHSD is comprised of five comprehensive high schools, a continuation school, an adult school, and an independent study school with an attendance boundary that includes the city of Roseville, the community of Granite Bay, and part of Antelope. RJUHSD and the Board of Trustees maintain a high level of commitment and high expectations for student learning and community involvement.

Roseville Joint Union High School District 2011-2012 District Goals

  • Increase by 3 percentage points in every subgroup the number of graduates who complete UC “a-g” requirements.
  • Improve by 5 percentage points the number of students who are proficient (scoring 70% or better) on the district-designed core academic common assessments.
  • Train 10 additional teachers at each site on PLC concepts, and additionally train 15 teachers per site on instructional practices to increase the effectiveness of their professional learning teams and to improve student learning.
  • Improve student performance to meet mandated Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) targets with every significant subgroup on 10th grade California High School Exit Exams (CaHSEE).
  • Improve student proficiency on California Standards Tests by 10 percentage points in Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2.
  • These goals and guiding principles represent the district philosophy and fundamental belief that every student should have access to a quality education, and that given the opportunity, every student can learn at a high level.


Despite amazing efforts by staff throughout the district, RJUHSD has narrowly missed meeting all NCLB requirements. RJUHSD was designated a Program Improvement (PI) District in 2006-07 and is currently in its third year as such.

AnHS Core Values

SCHOLARSHIP
The creation and application of knowledge, with an emphasis on inquiry, research, exploration, investigation, and creative production. We are creating educational opportunities which address the learning of ALL students.

LEADERSHIP
Motivating others to take actions for the betterment of their school and community. Individuals or groups can influence and energize ideas, actions, and capabilities of others toward promoting school pride, a safe school environment and positive community citizenship.

PARTNERSHIP
AHS will work collaboratively to address complex issues and problems, both within and beyond the boundaries of AHS. A high school cannot solve problems or increase student learning working in isolation. It must do so by interacting with all stakeholders. By working in partnerships, we gain an understanding and a shared responsibility of what can be accomplished together that could not have been accomplished alone.

CULTURAL AWARENESS
AHS will foster a student¡¯s ability to appreciate, investigate, and understand a cultural background different from his or her own as a means of bringing our students together. Cultural awareness promotes tolerance, relationships, and respect for a variety of cultures, both domestic and international, and facilitates opportunity for interaction, communication and engagement within a local and global community.
