Riverbank Unified School District (RUSD) is committed to providing an outstanding educational program for students, families and the community. Student learning is the focus of RUSD through providing effective and rigorous instruction. Each day the use of technology is provided to all students as a tool to stimulate learning as well as preparing them for the world in which they live. Each day meaningful instruction occurs therefore it is important all students attend school every day unless they are sick.  School attendance matters.

The support of education by families is vital to the learning for each student. Families are encouraged to attend the Back to School Night’s the week of August 12, 2019. Each school will provide additional information. For planning purposes, the schedule is as follows:

  • Monday, August 12 Adelante High School

  • Tuesday, August 13 California, Mesa Verde, Riverbank Language Academy

  • Wednesday, August 14 Cardozo Middle School

  • Thursday, August 15 Riverbank High School

Family attendance will demonstrate to students how much they value education and is a great way to learn about what the students will be learning during the school year.  Family support matters.

On November 6, 2018 the voters of Riverbank displayed a commitment to students through the passing of Measure G. Funds received from Measure G will be used to repair and upgrade facilities at our schools including but not limited to items to improve campus security, modernize science labs and repair buildings. Some projects have already started, while others are in the identification and planning phases. Work will be completed during the next several years. Community support matters.

The education of each student is important to their future. Working together as school staff, family and community will help our students succeed. It will take all of us, working together, to make this a great school year!
