Principals Wish List
2017-2018 Principal’s Wish List
There are many things the Sarasota school district simply does not pay for. Our mission is to provide funds for the enhancement of education at Riverview High School when there are no other funding sources.
Below is a list of the most needed items on the Principal’s wish list for this year.
ELECTRONIC MARQUEE SIGN
Total Cost: $20,000
RHS needs to communicate relevant information to students & parents clearly, quickly and effectively. The use of digital graphics on a sign in front of the school will greatly enhance our ability to reach parents and students with important school news and information.
ACADEMIC INTERVENTIONS PROJECT
Total Cost: $35,000
Our goal is to graduate 100% of our students by supporting them and embracing their changing needs. Funding needed for Academic Interventions:
- AP study materials for underprivileged students
- Teacher stipends to support student learning and successful pass rate of AP students
- ACT and SAT remediation for students to successfully pass the FSA 10th grade graduation requirements
- Teacher stipends for ACT and SAT remediation
- Teacher stipends to support remediation of CTE students to increase the levels of proficiency Transportation costs for students who stay after school for academic assistance
STARS TO STARFISH AQUADOME PROJECT
Total Cost: $33,700
Unlike any other program, the “Stars to Starfish” Aquaculture Aquadome requires 24-hour maintenance, supervision, and development. The kids (fish and coral) never go home. The district and school play a huge role financially, but it just is not adequate.
NEW POLE VAULT MAT
Total Cost: $15,000
We need to upgrade this equipment to a quality product that will support our student athletes and help Riverview continue its tradition of excellence. The equipment is 10+ years old and needs to be replaced.
THE COLLEGE AND CAREERS PROJECT
Total Cost: $74,000
Each of our counselors currently works with over 400 students while the suggested standard is 250 to allow counselors the maximum opportunity to work with students. We have one college and career specialist who is now responsible for working with all 2,500 students. We need college counselor with expertise to assist our students.
DEVELOP A DIVERSITY & RESTORATIVE JUSTICE PROGRAM
Total Cost: $50,000
The Mission is to Fund a Diversity and Restorative Justice Coordinator. Diversity and Restorative Justice give students, teachers and families strategies to address behavior problems and build community in our classrooms and on the entire campus. Riverview is committed to embracing the changing needs of our students. Riverview intends to bring its pockets of excellence to scale and ensure that every child has the opportunity to receive an outstanding education.
