Community Meeting for DesignTech Charter School

You may be aware that there is a proposal to build a new facility for the existing Design Tech charter high school on Oracle’s Redwood Shores Campus, and there remain open questions about many aspects of this project.Te proposed facility will accommodate 550-600 students and faculty in grades 9-12. Design Tech is chartered to the San Mateo Union High School District, although the Shores is part of the Sequoia Union High School District.School officials have stated that student enrollment will be determined by a “lottery” system, but it is not yet clear:

  • What qualifications (academic, residential, etc.) are required to enter the lottery? How will the lottery then work?
  • How many students from the Sequoia HS District (Belmont, Woodside, Atherton, San Carlos, Redwood City and Menlo Park) will be accepted? How many students from the Shores will be accepted?

Concerns have been expressed about the effectiveness of the proposed ‘No Driving Policy’ and the potential impact of 550+ high school students on traffic and parking in surrounding areas, ensuring public access to the waterfront during school hours, and on potential overcrowding of the Redwood Shores Library after school hours.

Here’s a chance to get questions answered about all aspects of the proposal to build this facility on the Oracle Campus.

When: Saturday, April 16, 3:00 pm

Where: Oracle Building 600

There will also be representatives of the City to answer questions about City processes involved and approvals required before construction can begin. You can find more information about the existing Design Tech School and proposed new facility at:

Sandpiper Community Meeting

Thank you to all who attended this event! There was a great turnout, and wonderful questions and comments were given to our school district leaders. For those unable to attend, questions about the Sandpiper expansion proposal can still be sent to the district, and RSCA will be sharing a contact point to send those questions as soon as we have it.

On March 12th, RSCA and the Belmont-Redwood Shores School District will be holding a community meeting regarding the proposed expansion at Sandpiper Elementary School. The event will include a walk through of the area, and also a question-and-answer period as to what is planned for the site.

We encourage Redwood Shores residents to attend this important and informative community event.

Eggstravaganza 2016!

It’s time for the RSCA’s annual Eggstravaganza, held every year at Marlin Park in the center of Redwood Shores. Bring all your children and a basket for goodies to the park for the big Egg Hunt, where toddlers and young kids can seek out goodies hidden in the grass and playground. Also, the Easter Bunny will be there to lead off the Egg Hunt and later to pose for pictures with the boys and girls, so be sure to take along a camera as well!

The festivities begin at 1:00 PM on Saturday, March 19th at Marlin Park here in Redwood Shores.

Be sure to arrive early so that your child can line up in the right age category — the eggs disappear quickly, and the whistle begins exactly at 1:00, so be on time! (Please limit your children to 6 eggs each so that everyone can share.)

Our local RWC Police will also be available to provide voluntary FINGERPRINTING for children of parents who might wish to have this record for identification. Because a child’s appearance can change in a short time, fingerprinting can be the best way to identify a lost child. And parents, don’t forget your camera for photo opportunities with the Easter Bunny.
