April 4th

Dear Ballwin Families,

On April 4, Rockwood voters will consider Proposition T to address increasing enrollment and the district's continued support for STEM/Innovative learning.

Rockwood Superintendent Dr. Eric Knost has been keeping our community informed via a “Super Talks” series. This week, our high school students interviewed him and asked about class sizes during this time of increasing enrollment in the district.  

I encourage you to take a moment to view the video. You’ll hear about Rockwood’s preferred class sizes across the district. Plus, view the Prop T projects that will fund additional space in our schools. 

A 57.14 percent majority is necessary for passage on Election Day. The $95.5 million bond issue will not raise the current Rockwood tax rate. 

As always, if you have questions, please give me a call.

Thank you,

Rodney ​​​

Hello, Families,

Election Day is less than two weeks away.  I want to let you know that Rockwood has Prop T on the April ballot to address increasing enrollment, class sizes and our continued support for STEM and innovative learning.

WHEN IS THE ELECTION? 
Tuesday, April 4, 2017. Polls are open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. 


WHERE CAN I VOTE? 
Just prior to Election Day, each registered voter will receive a postcard from the Election Office designating the polling place for the voter. You can find your polling place at www.stlouisco.com/YourGovernment/Elections.

HOW MANY “YES” VOTES ARE REQUIRED FOR THE BOND ISSUE TO PASS?
The Constitution of the State of Missouri requires a four-sevenths (57.14%) majority for passage of the bond issue.


WHERE MAY I FIND OUT MORE ABOUT THE BOND ISSUE?

You can visit the Prop T website: www.rsdmo.org/PropT. Plus, view the latest Super Talks video where our own Rockwood students interview Superintendent Dr. Eric Knost regarding STEM education.

If you have questions about Prop T, please give me a call.  ​

Dear Ballwin Families, 

Rockwood consistently balances its budget and works hard to be fiscally responsible. In fact, we are one of only four school districts in Missouri to earn a AAA rating from Standard & Poor’sfor this high level of financial responsibility. 


​Now, we are aware of 2,300 new homes being built in the district in the coming years.

These projections of increases in student enrollment led district officials to review current capacity in our schools. We evaluated how much space is available in each school – realizing the calculations are different at the elementary, middle and high school levels. We also considered our curriculum and the learning spaces needed to meet the needs of instruction.


During the last few years, the district has made a concentrated effort to decrease elementary class sizes. Our preferred Rockwood class sizes have made a difference in our school as we move toward the state’s desirable class size numbers.

​ 

In the latest edition of Super Talks with our Rockwood Superintendent, Dr. Eric Knost provides an overview of Prop T. The bond issue will address increasing enrollment and our continued support for STEM/Innovative learning.  Prop T is a $95.5 million bond issue that will not raise the current Rockwood tax rate. 


Learn more about Prop T on the April 4 ballot.


Thank you!

Prop T

Dear Ballwin Families,


We have known for a long time that hands-on, experiential activities engage more students. We have made a concentrated effort to provide more STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) education to prepare our students for the future.


Being a critical thinker and problem solver is one of the most essential skills for students to be successful. Our Rockwood Superintendent Dr. Eric Knost shares what innovation looks like in our schools. Take a moment to view the video and read the message.
