Thank you to those who were in attendance of last night’s board meeting. For those of you who were unable to attend, please see below the summarized meeting minutes regarding the expansion.
The search for a sponsor has produced some possibilities and a December 6 special board meeting has been scheduled to discuss the potential authorizer. The financial report was distributed and reviewed as well as the educational section of the RA3 charter.

To All Families on Rocklin Academy Waiting List (K-6)/Western Sierra Waiting List (6-7) & All Current Rocklin Academy Families
Last month you received a letter indicating that I would be speaking to the Rocklin Academy Board of Directors on October 22, 2012 regarding a proposal that would allow us to potentially serve more students in this community.
As some of you may know, the Rocklin Academy Board of Directors met and voted unanimously to allow administration to explore the possibility of opening a new Rocklin Academy K-8 school, which would include transitional kindergarten (TK)*. This process is complex and involves finding a sponsoring district, writing a new charter, and finding a suitable facility/location.
For planning purposes, we need to determine the number of students interested in attending a new TK-8 school so that administration can move forward to secure a suitable facility/location. If you would be interested in having your child/children attend a new Rocklin Academy TK-8 charter school, or if you have friends who might be interested, please complete the Intent to Enroll form and submit it no later than November 30, 2012. The information provided on this form will help us keep you informed as we continue with this process.
By submitting the Intent to Enroll form, you are indicating that you are interested in having your child/children attend a new Rocklin Academy TK-8 charter school. You also understand that the form expresses interest only and is not an application for enrollment or guarantee of placement. At the appropriate time, we will have an open enrollment period when we will accept applications.
*Transitional Kindergarten eligibility dates are for children who turn 5 years of age between October 2-December 2, 2013.
