Proposition T


On April 4, Rockwood voters will consider Proposition T (Thrive) to 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. A four-sevenths (57.14 percent) majority is necessary for passage on April 4. 

Class Sizes

  • building a new Eureka element​ary school to address increased student enrollment
  • repurposing the existing school for early childhood education and RSD programs
  • adding classrooms to schools to address increased student enrollment

Innovative Learning

  • creating and equipping elementary innovative learning spaces to support Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics in our curriculum
  • completing the final phase of high school STEM lab renovations​
  • expanding the implementation of the one-to-one student/technology program

​According to Rockwood Superintendent Dr. Eric Knost about 2,300 homes are expected to be built in the district in the next five years. "The timing and reasons for this bond issue are driven primarily by the compromise to our recent class size efforts, especially in our elementary grades.  The growth that is coming has the potential to ripple a redistricting effort district-wide, while also sending class sizes in the wrong direction," shares Dr. Knost. "Overall, the main focus is our need for additional spac​e and continued support for our STEM/Innovation efforts.​"
