  • Superintendent Coffee Chats

    Superintendent Rosas welcomes members of the community to join her for coffee  and conversation about the District - its goals, challenges, accomplishments and any issue related to education and the welfare of youth.  Now is your chance to share feedback on your experience in San Mateo-Foster City schools. Parents, students and staff members are invited to take part in these meetings to help guide our priorities as a district.  Feedback will inform our Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP). Dr. Rosas is looking forward to these coffee chats as a means of reconnecting with the community around issues that affect the education and well-being of our students.  We hope to see you there!
