SCOE and County Health are partnering to remind parents of state-required (non-COVID) vaccines that children must have at least started to receive before they can attend public or private schools. Students who have not started receiving the mandated vaccines are to be excluded from school until they begin. These include polio, measles, mumps and other childhood diseases, but not the COVID-19 vaccine, which remains strongly recommended. Vaccinations are required for new TK and K students as well as boosters for 7th graders at all public and private schools. Please click here to read about TK FAQ's from Shots for School. For more details on required vaccines, visit

Inter District Transfer Policy:
The District must meet it's obligation to serve resident students before using it's resources to serve new students who transfer into the District through an inter-district transfer agreement. The Governing Board of this District supports providing out-of District students with an in-District placement where possible. In order to accomplish this, the District must determine the limitations on capacity for purposes of inter-district transfers exist to allow for in-district residents.

Classes at the relevant grade level may be deemed to be full for the purposes of inter-district transfer when TK classes reach 17:1, when K-3rd classes reach 21:1, when 4th-6th grade classes reach 28:1 and when 7th-8th grade classes reach 30:1.

For special day class ("SDC") students, in addition to considerations of grade level and district capacity: A Mild-to-Moderate SOC may be deemed full for purposes of inter-district transfers when the student:teacher ratio exceeds 8:1. A Moderate-to-Severe SOC may be deemed full for purposes of inter-district transfers when the student:teacher ratio exceeds 8:1.

Math: Counting, sorting, patterning, shapes and simple addition help students build skills that lead to complex mathematical understanding in later years. Problem solving and reasoning are taught to bring concepts from the abstract to the concrete.

Language Arts: Students learn the building blocks of reading and writing through our adopted reading program, “Benchmark Advance.” Phonics and literature are used to instill confidence, a love of reading, and learning through reading.

Art: Through the Rincon Valley Art Docent program, students are given the opportunity to learn art appreciation and participate in specially designed hands-on art lessons.

Music: Each class visits a music teacher weekly for rhythm activities, dance, songs and beginning musical theory. Classroom music is also an important part of the day.

Science: Each campus has a Rincon Valley Educational Foundation funded science lab which allows an easy connection to the science curriculum

Technology: Student devices are available for use in each classroom. Students access Waterford Early Reading in their classrooms. This program supplements the daily phonics instruction. They also have access to the school computer lab.

Library: Students learn library skills and have the opportunity to check out books during their weekly visit to the library.

Physical Education: Weekly visits to our PE instructor build large muscles, develop balance and stability, teach body awareness and spatial orientation. Sharing and taking turns is also emphasized.



The District operates an extended day care program for students in grades TK-6. Extended Care is offered before school, beginning at 7AM, and after school until 6 PM on regular school days, August (first day of school) through June (last day of school).

The Extended Care Program is designed to provide a safe and supervised environment for children. A variety of age-appropriate activities are planned which may include: table games, expressive play, arts and crafts, outdoor play, computer and homework time, story time and a daily snack.
