As part of our Personalized Learning Initiative discussions during the last school year, one of the recommendations to ease stress on families was to change the way families interact with the Dashboard on School Loop. Prior to this school year, all families would automatically receive a daily email from School Loop that showed a dashboard that displayed their child’s homework and progress in his/her classes.

 

New this year, families will need to manually opt-in to receive this daily email reminder. The Dashboard is always available on School Loop. You can log-in and view it at any time. But if you want to receive a daily email reminder to check the Dashboard, you will need to follow these instructions.

If for some reason the Instructions link is broken here is how parents can change daily email settings:

 

 

Opt In to Receive the Daily Email

Users who prefer to login to check their accounts rather than receive a daily email can do so by turning off the Receive Daily Email feature. This feature is located on your Account Management page.

  1. Click the Gear Icon at the top right of any page in your portal.
  2. Click the Change button to the right of "Receive Daily Emails".
  3. Click the Submit button at the bottom of the page.

If the default choice states 'NO' you will no longer receive the daily homework email and must log in to view assignments, grades, and news.

 

 

If you have any questions or need help opting-in, please contact your school office.

ATTENTION GRIZZLY FAMILIES

 

Due to SRVUSD construction, the MANGOS WALK-OVER BRIDGE will be CLOSED from August 1st with a target date to re-open in early September.  This will affect students who use the bridge as a means of travel to and from school.  For students who park along Mangos and use the bridge, this will impact their access.  For those students who drive, have already registered and would like to purchase a CHS parking permit you may still do so by either completing the FutureFund registration or following this link to the store: As a reminder, you must also attend a "Street Smarts" class to receive your parking permit.

Parents who live outside the boundaries of the San Ramon Valley Unified School District now have the opportunity to seek interdistrict transfers to enroll their children at SRVUSD schools. SRVUSD has streamlined the enrollment request process for eligible families who reside in other Bay Area communities, reducing the stress of finding a high-performing new school. 

 

First, a family must obtain an interdistrict transfer approval document from its home school district. Second, if the student is in middle school or high school, SRVUSD will need to review transcripts, discipline records and attendance records from the previous school.

 

Transfer requests are approved based on space availability and a review of transcripts, discipline and attendance records.

 

In some cases, a family’s home school district will send the documentation to SRVUSD when a parent makes the transfer request. In a few other cases, the family will have to handle the paperwork.

 

Families interested in transferring their children to SRVUSD should check with their home school districts to begin the process.

 

SRVUSD is one of California’s top performing school districts. More than 98 percent of its students graduate from high school, and 95 percent of those grads plan to attend college, with 71 percent attending a four-year university. Student attendance rate is 97 percent at SRVUSD.

 

Academic success is a tradition at SRVUSD schools – a tradition well known to university admissions officers. In college placement exams, SRVUSD students rank exceptionally high, with 88 percent scoring 21 or higher on the ACT and 83 percent scoring 1,500 or better on the SAT.  Almost 40 percent of SRVUSD students enroll in Advanced Placement classes, and 88 percent earn at least a Grade 3 on AP exams.

 

The SRVUSD experience doesn’t stop at college preparedness. The district offers more than 450 sections of performing arts classes. And younger children are exposed to fun ways to learn, with a science lab and science classroom specialist available at SRVUSD elementary schools.

 

SRVUSD is built for success in the 21st century, with 100 percent of its classrooms and other learning spaces updated with wireless connectivity. The district has more than 6,400 Apple laptops for students, along with more than 3,000 PCs and over 2,000 Chromebooks. SRVUSD students also have access to more than 5,600 iPads and Android tablets.

 

SRVUSD has approximately 32,000 students in 36 schools, taught and cared for by 3,500 dedicated employees.

 

For questions about how families can apply for interdistrict transfers to enroll their children with SRVUSD, please visit http://www.srvusd.net/interdistricttransfers

or contact Student Services at (925) 552-5076.

State law gives families the option to transfer to a different school when there is space available. When schools have space, families can choose to transfer to another school within a district (intradistrict transfers) or to transfer to a school in another district (interdistrict transfers).

 

SRVUSD has moved up its intradistrict open enrollment window for elementary families. The open enrollment window for elementary schools is now open and closes on April 6, 2018. Families can find the link to the online intradistrict transfer request form and information about SRVUSD’s open enrollment/intradistrict transfer process at www.srvusd.net/transfers.

 

SRVUSD students will continue to have placement priority in our schools. However, after we place our resident students at their school of choice, because we now have space available, California law requires that we allow students from outside the district to apply to attend our schools (interdistrict transfers). Interdistrict transfers will only be accepted if there is space available. Students from outside the district must maintain acceptable academic performance, attendance and behavior. SRVUSD anticipates openings for interdistrict transfers students at nearly all SRVUSD schools.

In order to accommodate California State testing, we will have a modified schedule during these two weeks (March 19 - April 13.)  All 11th grade students will be participating in two English Language Arts tests and two Mathematics test.

Helping Your Student Manage Stress

 

Thursday, March 15, 2018 at 7 p.m.

Teen stress is an important health issue. The early teen years are often marked by physical, cognitive, and emotional changes. Teens are also dealing with changing relationships, demands at school, pressure to succeed in life, college concerns, family tensions, and crammed schedules. Many are not prepared to handle high levels of stress and over time this can lead to depression and anxiety.

 

Presentations by Discovery Counseling Center and Contra Costa Crisis Center.

They talk to many of our students on a regular basis and are in touch with the many demands our students are facing.

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.

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.

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.
