    Message from the Superintendent - Nov. 13, 2020


    Hello Roosevelt Community, 
    I wanted to take time to share an Important Video Message with you for the month of November (see video link below) and reiterate that our district’s top priority is the safety, health and well-being of our students, staff and community. As you know, per our last communication, we have made the decision to remain in a virtual learning setting at least until Winter Break. We are continuing to monitor Maricopa County health data and currently the data is showing that the COVID-19 positivity rate is not only increasing in our community but also in our city, our state and across our nation. We would like to encourage you and your family to stay vigilant during this winter/holiday season by wearing masks, maintaining social and physical distance from other people outside of your households and continuing to wash hands frequently. It’s more important now than ever in order to stop the spread of the virus. Our district team will continue to prepare for offering multiple in-person learning setting options in mid-January, data permitting. For now, we believe that it is the right decision for our school district to remain in a virtual learning setting. Additional details and information will be provided prior to the beginning of Winter Break.

    As we continue to refine our virtual learning environment to provide a high-quality experience for all students and staff, we remain committed to providing the needed support for students and families to be successful this academic year. This means ongoing support with meals, broader on-site care support at all schools andtechnology/internet support. Please reach out to your school campus if your family is in need of any type of support. Additionally, in the upcoming weeks, you will receive communication from your child’s school to confirm your learning setting preference for your child -- whether you would like your child to return in-person (once that option is available based on Maricopa County data) or if you would like your child to remain learning from home in a virtual setting. Please know that we are committed to working together to make the best decisions for all of our students, staff and families regarding a safe in-person return to school. As always, thank you for your support as we continue to make the best, most informed decisions for our district.

    Be Bold. Be Well. Be Safe.
    Quintin Boyce, Ed.D.

    Grateful for our Amazing Governing Board Leaders 

    As we reflect on all that we are grateful for this month – at Roosevelt we are very grateful to have great leaders. At our November 10, 2020 Governing Board meeting we highlighted our amazing resilient Governing Board Members, who passionately care about this community and who are helping to transform the lives of our “beautiful young people.” Our five Governing Board Members, President, Mr. Lawrence Robinson, Board Clerk, Ms. Michelle Campuzano, Mrs. Rosa Jones, Mrs. Norma Munoz and Ms. Nancy Pina-Gray, truly exemplify and demonstrate the vision and mission of this district  – and they have stayed the course during the most difficult of times and with tremendous fortitude – to make this district a successful, innovative and inclusive learning environment – and an overall beautiful place for every student to learn and every employee to work. We created this short video to honor them.


    Family Engagement Workshop Opportunities 

    Our district provides resources, workshops and events to help our families thrive. During this pandemic, it's even more important for us to come together and help each other. We will continue to update the Family & Community Engagement Workshop page frequently with new, virtual workshops and events. As you will notice, some of the virtual events are district-wide for all parents and families to attend and some are school based. 


    Bold Virtual Teaching Highlight Video

    As we all know, the 2020-21 school year has started off a lot differently than in prior years. Our students and teachers have boldly adapted to the methods of remote learning. This is in large part due to the commitment and dedication of our incredible Roosevelt teachers, who continue to navigate through these current circumstances to provide innovative learning at the highest levels possible.  Here is a short video highlighting some of the bold and innovating teaching that has been happening virtually. You will see clips from the Phoenix 11 TV segments, teachers virtually instructing their classes from their classrooms and our Exceptional Student Services team providing both online instruction and 1-on-1 services to our amazing students. Watch video below to see amazing teachers in action! Thank you for all you do!
