'Roxbury Reimagined' to Ponder Use of Space at RHS
Loretta Radulic, Roxbury's Superintendent of Schools provided an update on this year's district goals at Monday night's Board of Education meeting.

Every summer the board and the administration get together to lay out what the district goals will be for the coming year. This year's goals are grouped into four categories.


- Student Achievement/Professional Development

- Facilities/Finance & Safety/Security

- Culture/Climate & Community

- Roxbury Re-Imagined


One of the more interesting goals this year is the last one.  What will be the ultimate use of a 2,500 square foot space at the high school?

One of Radulic's goals is to convert the space to something the students really need. "The kids made a video to promote the idea. What do the students need? It's so exciting. We have this large space, and the goal is to find the best use for it," she said.

Students in a Hip Hop class will work on their strength, flexibility, and musicality through intricate fun and fast paced funky choreography.
