SCHOOL START


The interior halls of Rockdale High School’s old portion haven’t looked like this in 54 years. What missing? There are no longer any lockers. Here, Matt Schweitzer and Victor Cervantez prepare to re-tile the lower hall leading to RHS gyms. All lockers were removed from the school’s older portion during the summer. The high school’s new portion was built without lockers. Lockers remained in the older portion during the 2009-10 school term but were not used. Two sets of textbooks are issued, one for home use and one for classroom use. The interior halls of Rockdale High School’s old portion haven’t looked like this in 54 years. What missing?

Glenda Walker, RHS business teacher, works out on one of the new marvels, which are essentially blackboard sized computer screens. They include touch sensitive screens. Walker drew these designs with her fingers. Reporter/Mike Brown At left, this is not your grandfather’s blackboard.
