New Teen Driver Education Program to Emphasize Safety at San Ramon Valley Unified Schools

 

The San Ramon Valley Unified School District (SRVUSD) will implement a new system for students who wish to obtain on-campus parking permits that emphasizes traffic safety. Beginning in the 2018-2019 school year, the SRVUSD in partnership with Street Smarts and the California Highway Patrol (CHP) will sponsor free two hour CHP Start Smart classes. Students and their parent/guardian must attend one free two hour CHP Start Smart class in order to be eligible for a parking permit at all SRVUSD High Schools. 

 

The Start Smart presentations provide an opportunity for teens and their parents/guardians to discuss the serious laws, obligations, responsibilities and family expectations that are part of driving a vehicle.  The goal is to promote and create safe driving habits around SRVUSD schools.

 

The Start Smart presentations will begin in the 2017-2018 year for parking pass eligibility in the 2018-19 school year. At this class, officers from the California Highway Patrol will discuss traffic avoidance techniques, collision causing factors, driver/parent responsibilities and seatbelt usage. All SRVUSD comprehensive high schools will offer 3-4 free classes each year that are open to anyone. The class must only be taken once during a student’s high school career.

 

Click here to find class dates at SRVUSD schools. 

 

Register at  chp-bayarea.eventbrite.com. Reservations are required.

Parent and Community Education on Monday, October 23, 2017 at 7:00 in the California High School Theatre

Suicide Prevention Presentation by Contra Costa Crisis Center 

The mental health of our students is a top priority in the San Ramon Valley Unified School District. According to the California Department of Education, 20 percent of the State’s kindergarten through 12th grade students struggle with mental health issues that impact their relationships at home, in school and in the community. Sometimes these feelings lead to students silently contemplating suicide.

The San Ramon Valley Unified School District has been a leader in providing suicide prevention education in our schools. These efforts have been reinforced with the passage of Assembly Bill 2246: Pupil Suicide Prevention Policies. 

As part of the District’s education on mental health, there will be a Suicide Prevention Presentation on Monday, October 23 at 7 p.m. in the California High School Theater. The presentation is a general overview and introduction to suicide prevention where participants explore the issue of suicide, learn current suicide related statistics, how to recognize the warning signs of suicide, and how to get help.

For more information, visit the Contra Costa Crisis Center website.

Students,

The last day to drop a class without penalty is September 22nd. If you choose to drop before that date, you will have to find a teacher to aide for, you will not be able to enter any other course.  The class you dropped will not show up on your transcript.

After September 22nd, teachers have the option to give you a No Mark or an F and either of these will go on your transcript. Again, if you drop after September 22nd, you will need to find a teacher to aide for.

Please see your counselors now if you are considering dropping a class so you can get help on knowing your options.

If you are looking for volunteer hours and enjoy working with kids (grades-2-7), please consider becoming a mentor for the Imagineering Program offered by the San Ramon Valley Education Foundation (SRVEF). This is a significant volunteering opportunity as mentoring assignments are available for multiple times during the year and during the summer. For each Imagineering class we offer, we employ 4-5 high school mentors. It's a great resume builder for your college applications and the children enrolled value the intimate support our mentors provide by keeping the ratios low during each class.

 

Imagineering is a beyond school enrichment program for SRVUSD students. The goal of Imagineering is to spark student interest in choosing STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math) classes in middle and high school with the ultimate goal of identifying more STEAM majors who will ultimately become highly sought after talent in the US corporate workplace.

 

For more information about Imagineering:
