Parents: Protect Your Child!

Just as you had to teach your children to safely cross the street, warning them of dangers, watching them closely - you should be teaching them about the internet, warning them of dangers, watching them closely - No child should be unsupervised while using the internet - move your computer to a common area of your home and disable the internet when you cannot supervise. Monitor your child's cell phone. Protect your child from preditors, cyberbullying, and inappropriate content.

Common Core Standards

Since 2010, 45 states have adopted the same standards for English and math.  These standards are called Common Core State Standards.  Having the same standards helps all students get a good education, even if they change schools or move to a different state.  Teachers, parents, and education experts designed the standards to prepare students for success in college and the workplace.

What is Title IX?
http://www2.ucsc.edu/title9-sh/titleix.htm


In order to comply with United States Department of Education Office for Civil Rights (OCR) requirements school districts must have in place basic procedures regarding federal statues and implementing OCR regulations, Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, as well as Vocational Education Guidelines for Eliminating Discrimination and Denial of Services on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex and handicap. These basic procedures include an annual public notice, continuous notification, designation of a person(s) to coordinate activities under Title IX, Section 504, and Title II and a grievance procedure that will allow students and parents an avenue for dealing with alleged discrimination. Also, all educational programs and activities under the jurisdiction of the State Board of Education receiving or benefiting from state or federal financial assistance shall be available to all qualified persons without regard to sex, sexual orientation, gender, ethnic group identification, race ancestry, national origin, religion, color, or mental or physical disability pursuant to the California Code of Regulations, Title 5, Chapter 5.3, section 4900 et seq
