Riverside Unified School District welcomes families living outside RUSD boundaries to submit a District of Choice transfer application for the 2015-2016 school year beginning November 1, 2014 through January 1, 2015. The District of Choice option is available to any student who does not live within RUSD boundaries but is interested in attending RUSD schools. Please keep in mind that a District of Choice transfer request is to the desired district and not a particular school site. However, every effort will be made to accommodate specific school requests based on space availability. The DOC online applications will be accepted November 1, 2014 through January 1, 2015. No application will be accepted prior to November 1, 2014. If you do not have internet access, please visit the Pupil Services Department located at 5700 Arlington Ave. Riverside, CA 92504 during our business hours of 7:30 a.m. through 4:30 p.m., as there will be access to the DOC application through our kiosk.
The Jackson staff feels fortunate to have wonderful volunteers who work with our teachers to support achievement. Our volunteers are parents, community members and retired teachers. Volunteers are needed in in all of our classrooms, even in the upper grades! If you are interested in volunteering in a classroom, in our library, or even in the office, contact us! Regular volunteers must be approved by the classroom teacher, library media clerk or office staff and must adhere to a regular schedule. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate volunteers on a drop-in basis. You may volunteer in your child's classroom for single events as well. When volunteers are needed for events such as class parties, chaperoning field trips, or other events, the teacher will send information home to request volunteers. Your child's teacher will then notify you of the details of volunteering for that event, or if the need for volunteers has been satisfied.
