  • Each year, the RCC Foundation awards about $500,000 in scholarships to those attending RCC. We invite high school seniors who may be attending RCC in 20/21 to apply soon.

    The 20/21 application cycle opens 11/1/19 and closes 3/2/20. We encourage applicants to begin the application early, including asking two individuals to complete an online recommendation for them, then submit it as soon as their ’19 fall grades are available. A single, complete application means that they’ll be considered for multiple scholarships. And, they have made it easy by asking for the same essays as are required by the state/OSAC! How easy is that?

    To access the application , please visit

    Let us know if you need any help.

    January 11, 2021 -Superintendent  Update

     Dear Community:

    This is a brief update on where the Rogue River School District stands in regards to expanding our onsite learning with students.

    When Governor Brown announced on December 23, 2020 that the decision making for school reopening would now be put in the hands of local school districts, she also cautioned that districts should consider waiting until after January 19, 2021 to make any changes.  The reason the Governor cautioned schools on making any firm plans before January 19, 2021 is because she expects to release updated rules for safely operating schools on that day.

    Shortly after her announcement, the Oregon School Boards Association gave superintendents legal guidance stating that schools opening while still in the red zone according to the current metrics, would not have liability coverage.  Having that liability protection is crucial to protecting school districts from potential lawsuits.  All schools in Jackson County are currently in the red zone.

    In Rogue River, we are carefully planning to expand our offerings of onsite learning in some form to our students beginning February 1, 2021.  The new rules released on January 19, will play a major role in deciding what our expanded onsite instruction looks like on February 1. 

    Because of the uncertainties about how the guidance might change on January 19, 2021, and because of our uncertainty about having liability coverage, we are not announcing our reopening plans until we are more confident that we can actually follow through with them. 

    We are optimistic we will be able to bring more students back on campus in February.  We expect to give some form of update with more details on the status of our reopening plans on or around January 22, 2021. 

     Thank you,

     Patrick Lee
