9:00 AM - 10:00 AM Dan O. Root II Spelling Bee
6:00 PM - 7:30 PM I'm a PTA, PTO, or Booster Club Board Member - Now What?
Dear Dan O. Root II families,
We are excited about the prospect of Dan O. Root II transitioning from a TK-5 school to a TK–8 school in the coming years. With this transition, we are also proposing to our Governing Board a name change. The proposed change would be “Dan O. Root II Health and Wellness Academy” to emphasize the school theme. The proposal will be presented to the Fairfield-Suisun Unified School District Governing Board meeting on Thursday, Jan. 26, 2017 at 6 p.m. at 2490 Hilborn Road in Fairfield. Action on this proposal is expected to take place at the Governing Board meeting to be held on Thursday, Feb. 9, 2017 at 6 p.m. Both meetings are open to the public.
The proposal is to expand Dan O. Root II to a TK-6 for the 2017-2018 school year, TK-7 for the 2018-2019 school year and TK-8 for the 2019-2020 school year. The school emphasis will be Health and Wellness.
The attendance boundaries will not be adjusted for the 2017-2018 school year. However, it is proposed to revise the Dan O. Root II attendance boundaries in future years to accommodate the growing student population. Students living in the current Dan O. Root II attendance area will be expected to attend Dan O. Root II for the 2017-2018 school year unless granted open enrollment or accepted into specialized programs. The FSUSD open enrollment window is Feb. 1-28, 2017. More information on open enrollment and the application can be found at www.fsusd.org.
Feel free to contact me with further questions or concerns at 421-4240.
