Roseland launches college readiness effort

SANTA ROSA – Roseland School District is embarking on a district-wide program to ensure that Roseland students who enter a college or university actually complete their post-high school studies and graduate with a degree.

 The program, created at the conclusion of a one-year study by Roseland staff and representatives of Sonoma State University and Santa Rosa Junior College, provides a series of action plans for improving the college success rates of Roseland children, a majority of whom come from Hispanic/Latino families and are English learners and economically disadvantaged.

 The plans set both short and long-term goals for meeting challenges in college performance by Roseland University Prep graduates now enrolled in public and private universities and colleges.

 One course of action, for instance, focuses on increasing English and Math proficiency at the college level by 2015.

 Other action plans address college performance challenges faced by children in the Roseland community by developing new teaching strategies beginning in the second grade.
