Big news for our RoboKnights!

Team 5496, The Robo Knights, have just received amazing news! We've been selected to compete at the FIRST Robotics World Championships. This is an incredibly rare opportunity especially for a team as young as ours.  We have worked everyday since the beginning of the school year, including a six-week-long daily build season.  We have endured countless days and nights to ensure we are as prepared as possible for this event.  In addition, the Robo Knights spent everyday with community outreach, fundraising, and 200+ hours on designing, prototyping, and constructing our robot. 

Unfortunately, to attend we need to scrape up 16,000 dollars and this is where we need your help. Every donation would be greatly appreciated. Words cannot describe how happy and grateful we are for your support and donation. 

 

Click here to donate today!

 

or come to our garage sale this weekend!

Walk Up March 14th

Walk UP and extend kindness March 14th
Tomorrow is the national "Walk Out" movement, from 10:00 AM to 10:17 AM. As a district, we recognize that recent violent events weigh heavily on VUSD parents, staff and students. While VUSD is not promoting participation in the event, we will support students in middle or high school who feel compelled to express themselves in a respectful way during this time. Some student groups have organized voter registration efforts (non-partisan) and similar activities tomorrow. Teachers will remain in classrooms for students who do not wish to participate as well. 
"Walk Up" is another movement that encourages students and adults alike to extend kindness and support to others. Efforts of kindness is something we can all do today that can have immediate impact in our daily lives.

Addressing School Violence

Hello VUSD Families,

 

The recent school shooting in Florida is a horrible reminder that our worst nightmare is happening more and more. As we move forward through our fear for our own children and grief for families at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, I wanted to share what VUSD has and will continue to do to address school safety.

 

School violence is a complex issue. As a district we have worked to identify the aspects of school violence beyond legislation that we can directly control and impact in our schools.

 

As adults, the action that we can take today which serves as the foundation for a positive school climate is helping students understand the importance of respect, compassion, understanding and support of each other; face to face, on social media, at school and at home. We can model this behavior and help students look for understanding of each other. Our schools serve students with a wide range of emotional, physical and intellectual needs and it is important that we foster a culture that is inclusive of everyone. Sometimes behaviors we witness are misunderstood or present an opportunity to provide a student with needed support. However, consistent and understood consequences for students who choose to threaten, demean or bully others at school or online is also key.

 

A consistent and clear emergency response plan is also vital in keeping our students safe and addressing any potential threat on campus. We are in our fourth year of practicing the Standard Response Protocols (Lockdown, Lockout, Evacuate, Shelter). This plan was developed with guidance from the Vacaville Police Department. Vacaville PD is at the center of all our emergency responses and their expertise and support has been invaluable. A police sergeant and four school resource police officers are based on school campuses and serve all of our schools with safety and crime issues. Our emergency plan also includes monthly drills for students and staff as well as trainings for parents. I invite you to attend our next parent-training event on February 27th at 5:30 PM at 401 Nut Tree Road.

 

Our 2017-18 educational plan (LCAP) has also included funding and programing to systemically address social and emotional wellness for students. Each school has adopted systems of Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) that include teaching positive behaviors and offering a wide range of supports to fit each individual student’s needs. This includes sixteen mental health clinicians, therapists, and interns, school counselors, deans at secondary schools and school administration. The City of Vacaville also has a community service officer, two master social workers, family support workers and program managers who work to serve and support VUSD students as well.

 

Positive school climate and safety is an ongoing effort that must be the highest priority for the school district, parents, students, city and our community. Supporting students positively as they grow not only effects our school environment but our city as a whole.

 

If you have any questions or concerns about safety, please reach out to your school principal, district administration listed below or myself.

 

Director of Student Attendance and Welfare- Ramiro Barron (707) 453-7126 ext. 226

Assistant Superintendent of Student Services- Kim Forrest (707) 453-7201

Director of Community Engagement (emergency response)- Jennifer Leonard (707) 453-6155

School Safety

emergency response icons
School shootings are a terrifying thought for every parent and educator. Student safety is always in the forefront for us as a community. Given yesterday's tragic events in Florida, we thought we would share the following upcoming events that are part of our annual calendar to address school safety. 
The first is our district wide Emergency Operations Center Training on February 27th that includes all of our schools and departments in executing an EOC with the focus on the logistics of keeping our students safe and accounted for in a disaster. 

The second is an informational meeting for parents, reviewing our Standard Response Protocols as well as our Standard Reunification Method Protocols, also on February 27th from 5:30-7:00 PM in the Educational Services Center Board Room at 401 Nut Tree Road. 

Finally, March 15th is our annual district-wide school Lockdown Drill. The drills will be happening throughout the day at every school site. Each site creates a different scenario to practice each year, for example a school might elect to trigger the drill during passing period or recess rather than in the classroom so that students can practice the procedures under various circumstances. 

The Vacaville Police Department is an integral partner in keeping our kids safe. All of our protocols are created in collaboration with VPD. More information about VUSD's emergency response protocols can be found at http://www.vacavilleusd.org/SRP. Please feel free to contact Jennifer Leonard at (707)453-6155 with any questions or comments.

Hello VUSD Parents and Guardians,

The Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) connects the funding we receive to the goals we’ve established, and it outlines the ways we measure progress. Parent/guardian input is a critical component to the plan. Academic success for each student requires a collaborative partnership between parents/guardians and schools.

Please take a few moments to share your feedback and priorities with us by completing one survey for each school your student(s) attend(s).  (2 surveys for 2 different schools, etc.)

SURVEY AT: https://goo.gl/forms/2SovZX O9KAH0PjXv1
Thank you for partnering with us in your student’s education.

 

Sincerely,

Superintendent

Saludos a nuestros Padres/Guardianes de VUSD,

El Plan de Control Local de Responsabilidad (LCAP, por sus siglas en inglés) conecta los fondos que recibimos a los objetivos que hemos establecidos y describe las maneras en que medimos el progreso.  El aporte de los padres/guardianes es un componente crítico del plan. El éxito académico de cada estudiante requiere una asociación colaborativa entre los padres/guardianes y las escuelas.

Por favor tómese unos momentos para compartir su retroalimentación y prioridades con nosotros completando una encuesta para cada escuela a la que su alumno(os) asista.  (2 encuestas para 2 escuelas diferentes, etc.)

Gracias por ser parte de la educación de su estudiante.

ARREST & INCIDENT

As a follow up and response to the concerning incident this morning involving the arrest of a near a bus transit station, please see the update below. As always, we encourage parents to help students understand how to be aware of their surroundings, not engage with strangers and immediately tell adults about strange or threatening incidents. We appreciate the immediate action and support from Vacaville PD, and are glad that the suspect was identified.

 

THE FOLLOWING MESSAGE HAS BEEN POSTED BY THE VACAVILLE POLICE DEPARTMENT:

Two teenaged girls are to be commended for their quick thinking and actions yesterday, which have now led to the arrest of 29-year-old Vacaville resident Newton Payeah.

Yesterday morning while waiting for a bus at the Vacaville Transit Center on E. Monte Vista Avenue, Payeah approached two girls who were waiting for a bus to take them to school. He asked them if they would like to smoke marijuana with him and offered to give them a ride, identifying himself as an Uber driver. These brave young ladies did the right thing by not engaging him further and got on their bus when it arrived. They then reported what happened to an adult which resulted in police being called.

Our children's safety is extremely important to us and we immediately launched an investigation as to what occurred. Information was being shared on other social media platforms that in some situations was not correct. We want you to know we are committed to providing you information that is timely, accurate, and direct from the source on our social media platforms and sometimes that takes a little longer than we all may want, however this ensures accuracy in what's shared. Officers from our Youth Services Section were actively following up on the case when we learned Payeah returned to the transit center this morning. Officers immediately responded and safely took Payeah into custody. We were able to determine he does not work for Uber as a driver. Payeah was arrested for annoying a child under the age of 18 and booked into Solano County Jail. Below is a picture of Payeah at the time of his arrest and the car he arrived in.

This situation could have ended much different if not for the excellent decisions made by the girls. Please use this event to have those important conversations with your children about how to handle themselves should they ever be in similar circumstances.

Anyone with information regarding Payeah's actions is asked to contact Officer Erwin Ramirez at (707) 449-5200. Media inquiries can be directed to Lt. Mark Donaldson at (707) 449-5260.

School is Open Oct. 11th

School will be in session today.

 

VUSD schools will be open today with measures being taken to reduce smoke exposure for staff and students. Students who stay home with parental permission due to poor air quality will have excused absences.

 

“Our thoughts go out to our Fairfield/Napa/Sonoma neighbors and staff who are dealing with evacuations and tragedy. We understand that many VUSD parents cannot get time off for poor air quality and cancelling school creates childcare and income challenges for many. Keeping schools open, but excusing absences for those who choose to keep students home is the best way we can support our families during this tragedy while maintaining educational continuity.” VUSD Superintendent Jane Shamieh.

 

All VUSD schools will be collecting donations for fire victims today.

 

VUSD will follow data and guidelines from the Spare the Air Current Conditions table and the Air Quality Index. The following are measures that VUSD staff will take to ensure minimal exposure to unhealthy air.

Fire Relief/Donations

 

Hello Buckingham Community!! 

 

Our Leadership Class is trying to organize a very quick donation drive for relief for those affected by these fires. We plan to collect donations tomorrow and Thursday at lunch and after school. I would like to deliver all donations after school on Friday. There will be 3 bins on BOTH sides of campus. One for clothes, one for animal needs, and one for essentials/necessities. Any small amount can help those in need. The bins on the Fish Bowl side will also be available in the morning, just see Hala or Laura. Thank you for your support in this and your willingness to help our neighbors and community! 

 

Go Knights!

THE ECLIPSE IS COMING!

August 21 Eclipse Resources!

On August 21 all of America will experience a solar eclipse. Some areas will witness a total eclipse (when the moon entirely covers the sun); other regions will witness a partial eclipse.

The Bay Area will experience a 76% eclipse, with the moon beginning to cover the sun at 9:01 am, reaching maximum coverage at 10:15 am, and then moving away from the sun at 11:37 am.  

Some schools have made plans for students to go outside and watch the eclipse using special solar eclipse glasses and/or cards for pinhole viewing. Please check your school's website to see what kinds of activities are planned.  

If you want to send your child to school with glasses for viewing the eclipse, please be sure to provide designated solar eclipse glasses. Staring at even a sliver of the sun without adequate protection can cause permanent eye damage. (You can find more information about choosing safe glasses on the American Astronomical Society's website.)

The following websites have lots of layperson-friendly eclipse information to share with your families and friends:

Warning About "Blue Whale Challenge"

KCRA 3 news reportCBS 13 news story
Dear Parents,

We can never be too careful when it comes to protecting our children.  A dangerous “game” surfaced on social media a while back, particularly with students in other countries. The game is being talked about by student in our schools. 

The “Blue Whale Challenge” app involves the enticement of students into risky behavior that could result in the final challenge of taking one’s life. While we do not know of any VUSD students who are playing it, we want to make sure that you are aware of it.

Evidently, it has been removed from the app store.  We are appreciative of members of the community who brought this to our attention; our children benefit when we work together to protect them.

Sincerely, 

Kim Forrest

Members of the band will return to their hometown for a special dedication ceremony at Imagine That!  – Vacaville’s newly opened hands-on learning Exploratorium for children of all ages and abilities. Exhibits at the center encourage children to be free to imagine, create, and welcome sciences and art into their lives.

The highlight of this special ceremony will be Vacaville Mayor Len Augustine proclaiming May 3 as Papa Roach Day in Vacaville. In honor of Papa Roach’s generous support of our community, organizers have created a special exhibit at the center that celebrates their musical success. One portion of the exhibit invites youngsters to play out their rock dreams and musical talents.

Papa Roach formed in 1993, with Jacoby Shaddix, a student at Vacaville High, and Jerry Horton of Vanden High, since that time and with Members Tobin Esperance and Tony Palermo, Papa Roach have achieved critical and commercial acclaim selling over 25 million albums worldwide. 

The dedication will take place from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 3 at Vacaville’s Imagine That!, 848-B Alamo Drive.

For local information, contact Lauren Runow of Imagine That!, (707) 474-5317.

VUSD Bids Farewell to Nolan Sullivan

nolan sullivan

 

Superintendent Jane Shamieh and Board of Education President Shelley Dally presented Board member Nolan Sullivan with an award of appreciation for his years of service on the VUSD Board. Mr. Sullivan has a long history of serving students, not only as a Board member, but as the Chief Organizer for Measure A, the President of the Vacaville Public Education Foundation (VPEF) the Chair of Loop the Lagoon charity run and more. Nolan did not run for re-election so that he could spend more time with his young family, but we expect he will continue to have a strong and positive presence in our community. Thank you Nolan for all that you do.

He dropped off over 800 school supply items to VUSD this week! Heartfelt thanks Ryan. Your efforts mean so much to so many.

Buckingham Introduces a New Online Learning Program – BCOL

We have a new program called BCOL -- Buckingham Charter Online Learning. It's split into two branches, one of which may be a great fit for your family. One branch is BCOL-H, with the H standing for Hybrid. This is essentially what used to be called BCAL -- students may take three courses on site (depending on availability) and the rest online. The other branch is BCOL-D, with the D standing for Distance. This is a completely online independent study program, but is run by Buckingham teachers who will be regularly communicating via Skype, FaceTime, or in person with the students and parents. 

 

The goal is to provide a high-quality education with more flexibility for students and families that need it. The rigor and expectations are just as high, and the teacher support is just as readily available. Both programs use Edgenuity's online learning system, which utilizes video lectures, quizzes, assignments, papers, and tests to address a variety of learning styles. There will also be teacher-led additions, including Khan Academy practice, math support meetings, and science labs. Math support and science labs provide hands-on opportunities for students to put their learning into practice or get extra in-person help on difficult topics from highly-qualified teachers. 

 

There are some huge perks of enrolling in one of these two programs. The first is that your child will be considered a Buckingham student, which means that he or she will be able to attend school events and try out for sports. Secondly, he or she will have the option to come onto campus part-time or full-time at the semester if there is room. Students enrolling in BCOL will sign a Master Agreement which commits them to the program semester by semester; after that they can continue with Distance, Hybrid, or on-site (again, if there's room). 

 

There will be an informational meeting on Friday, May 27th at 3:00pm to get more information, have any questions answered, and enroll if interested. It will take place in Room 4 at the school; this is on the 188 (main office) side. Please let us know if you are able to come to the meeting by RSVPing here. This is a great new program that will open doors for even more students, which is a very exciting prospect. We hope to see you at the meeting!

Class for Parents: What Parents Should Know About Devices and Social Media

social-media-collage.jpg
 

Social Media class for parents: Wednesday, June 1st, 6:30 PM at Educational Services Center, 401 Nut Tree Rd. Vacaville in the Board room.

VUSD and the Vacaville Police Department are hosting a free class to help parents learn about current trends, aps, devices capabilities and dangers that face our kids. 

RECENT  NEWS: A New York state man was arrested by federal authorities following an investigation by Vacaville police that included a then 12-year-old victim in Vacaville. Homeland Security agents arrested Robert J. Garneau, 21, of Warwick, New York on charges of online child exploitation.

As social media trends change day to day and technology advancements do the same, keeping up with devices and social media can be challenging for parents. Even parents who are up on social media might be surprised about what aps are now available and what kids can be exposed to.

VUSD Evaluating School Start Times

sleeping.jpg

Children 5-11 years naturally wake early. Teens 12-18 years naturally wake later, despite bed times.

Researchers have studied the effect of delaying start times for high school students and have found that even a modest shift in start times benefits adolescent students.

 

Teen experience a biological shift in their internal clocks that causes them to be alert at typical bedtimes and to have difficulty waking early in the morning. Because they are drowsy in the morning, teens have more trouble: 

  • being alert in school
  • paying attention
  • solving problems
  • coping with stress
  • retaining information.

In hopes of creating the best learning environment possible for our students, VUSD is evaluating the start times for each school.

 

How would you be affected by a change in school start times?

 

Please take 10 minutes to consider the aspects of school start time changes and tell us what you think. Info and survey at http://www.vacavilleusd.org/times

Parents Can File Objection to Mandated Release of Student Data

INFORMATION REGARDING CONFIDENTIAL STUDENT DATA

A recent lawsuit against the California Department of Education (CDE) is impacting all school districts across the state, including the Solano SELPA, of which Vacaville Unified is a member district.

In April 2012, two organizations, the Morgan Hill Concerned Parents Association and the Concerned Parent Association, filed a lawsuit against the CDE alleging widespread, systemic non-compliance by local education agencies with special education laws. The suit also alleges the CDE fails to monitor, investigate and correct such non-compliance in accordance with the law. The CDE denies these allegations and is actively defending the litigation.

 

The Solano County Office of Education and our local school districts are not involved in the lawsuit and are not the subject of any of the suit’s allegations.

Nonetheless, as a part of this lawsuit, CDE has been ordered by the court to release all data it has collected on general and special education students since Jan. 1, 2008.

Una demanda legal en contra del Departamento de Educación de California (CDE por sus siglas en inglés) está afectando a todos los distritos escolares en el estado, incluyendo el  SELPA de Solano, del cual el Distrito Escolar Unificado de Vacaville es miembro.

En abril del 2012, dos organizaciones, la Asociación de Padres Afectados de Morgan Hill y la Asociación de Padres Afectados, entablaron una demanda legal en contra del CDE acusándolo de incumplimiento sistémico generalizado por parte de agencias locales de educación en cuanto a las leyes de educación especial. La demanda alega que el CDE no cumple con monitorear, investigar y corregir el dicho incumplimiento de acuerdo a lo estipulado por la ley. La CDE niega dichas acusaciones y está defendiendo el litigio activamente.

La oficina de educación del Condado de Solano y nuestros distritos escolares locales no participan en el juicio y no son objeto de ninguna de las alegaciones de la demanda.

Sin embargo, como parte de esta demanda, la corte ha ordenado a la CDE de divulgar todos los datos que ha recopilado en cuanto a estudiantes de educación general y de educación especial desde enero 1º  del 2008.

Para obtener mayor información acerca de la divulgación de estos datos y como usted puede presentar una objeción con la corte para que ésta considere no divulgar sus datos, visite: http://www.cde.ca.gov/morganhillcase. También puede contactar al Departamento de Educación de California al 916-319-0800.

New School Immunization Requirements

While the Vacaville Unified School District values the personal beliefs and perspectives of our District families, new legislation now prevents VUSD from accepting waivers pertaining to vaccinations. The new legislation (SB 277) states that, as of January 1, 2016, personal belief exemptions for state-mandated immunizations will no longer be accepted when registering students for school in Transitional Kindergarten, Kindergarten, and for the Tdap requirement for 7th grade. Parents who choose not to immunize their student have the option of home schooling or an independent study program.  More information about SB 277 is available at shotsforschool.org.

In order to prepare for emergency events at school sites, VUSD and the City of Vacaville Police Department have been implementing a new school safety program called Standard Response Protocol (SRP). 

The SRP is a universal response to an incident at any school site. A severe weather event, fire, accidents, intruders, and earthquakes are some of the safety scenarios that are planned and trained for by students, teachers, staff, and administration. This meeting will explain the SRP and will be directed by Vacaville PD and VUSD.

Congratulations Mr. Rowe!

noid1q01604.jpg
Buckingham Charter’s IM2 and AP Calculus teacher, Nate Rowe has added another accolade to his professional resume.  Nate was recently named as an Ambassador for the Khan Academy LearnStorm Initiative, which is piloting programs in the Bay Area, Chicago, Idaho and Ireland.

 

Here is small explanatory excerpt from Khan Academy about their Ambassador Network:

 

Khan Academy (KA) is on a mission to provide a free world-class education for anyone, anywhere.  At KA, we have wanted to create an Ambassador program to support and engage with enthusiastic and thoughtful educators for some time.  Our newest initiative, LearnStorm, has provided the perfect opportunity to start building our Ambassador network in collaboration with a small group of some of the best educators we know.  

 

Our goal with the Khan Academy Ambassador program is to empower a select network of innovative educators who will share their expertise and promote KA in their communities. We are excited for this group joining to form an in-person and online professional community that encourages, supports and inspires one another.

 

Ambassadors will be responsible for facilitating workshops, supporting classroom teachers and the broader community learning to use KA, and attending local conferences or events when appropriate. Ambassadors will be our on-the-ground experts, sharing their own educator experience and discussing ways KA can better serve students and communities.

 

Anyone interested in more information regarding Khan Academy and LearnStorm Initiative may contact Nate at NathanaelR@vacavilleusd.org.

Working Together to End Truancy

Solano County District Attorney Krishna Abrams would like all families to know the importance of good school attendance. Several county agencies have come together to make ending truancy a common goal. 

  • Up to 75% of children who miss 18 days or more of school a year without a valid excuse will end up dropping out of high school. 
  • Children who drop out of high school are 8 times more likely to end up in jail or prison than those who graduate. 
  • 68% of prisoners are high school dropouts.

PARENT INPUT REQUESTED FOR LCFF AND LCAP FUNDING

LOCAL CONTROL FUNDING FORMULA (LCFF) AND THE LOCAL CONTROL ACCOUNTABILITY PLAN (LCAP)

It is an exciting time in education, particularly in the Vacaville Unified School District. As you are aware, the state implemented a new method of funding public schools called the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). The LCFF has been passed by legislation to provide a more equitable, rational and efficient approach to allocating resources to all School Districts. This formula is structured to do what the name implies – allow local insight and meaningful conversations from parents, employees, and the community of their schools.

Another new component to this process is the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP). To ensure that the funding is targeted at the needs of all students in VUSD, as well as the identified subgroups of English Learners, Low Income, and Foster Youth, the District will begin the process of developing a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP).

As an involved partner with our district, I invite you to share your input and perspective based on the following Eight Priorities established by the California Department of Education for the LCAP, and also provide suggestions you feel will assist us in providing an optimum learning environment for students in the Vacaville Unified School District. Your input into this survey will be taken into consideration while developing the school district’s Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP):
