Rosemont Scholarship Criteria Changed
The RCA board modified the qualifications for the RCA High School Scholarship to open it to all seniors living in Rosemont, not just those attending Rosemont High. The rationale is that as a community association representing all living here we should be encouraging all our seniors to apply regardless of the school they attend.

Big Change Coming at RHS
The Sacramento City Unified School District Board has just approved a major change in the administration at Rosemont High. Beginning in the school year 2014-15 our new RHS Principal will be Elizabeth Vigil. Ms. Vigil comes to Rosemont from California Middle School. It is not unusual for a school's leadership to be changed like this periodically.
Current RHS Principal Leise Martinez will be taking over as principal at New Technology High School, a school focused on technology and project based learning. These moves are seen as good ones for all involved.
RCA thanks Ms. Martinez for her dedicated efforts on behalf of our students and her strong support of the Rosemont community. Under her leadership there have been many cooperative projects with the community which we anticipate continuing with the new RHS leadership. We look forward to working with her for the balance of the school year; we have lots of things planned together still.
