News & Events
This fall, the San Ramon Valley Unified School District will implement a new curriculum called "Childhelp Speak Up Be Safe” for 1st through 6th grade. This is a research-based, comprehensive child abuse and bullying prevention education curriculum that has been used nationwide to teach students the skills they need to play a significant role in the prevention or interruption of abuse and bullying. The implementation follows a successful pilot last year at several SRVUSD schools.
This new program is part of our ongoing efforts to help ensure the safety of our students. Childhelp Speak Up Be Safe covers topics such as child abuse, bullying/cyber bullying, sexual harassment and technology safety, all at an age-appropriate level. It is offered through the Child Abuse Prevention Council of Contra Costa County.
The curriculum will involve two safety lessons facilitated in each classroom. Follow-up activities are administered by teachers to reinforce the lessons' content. Take-home educational materials are emailed home and distributed to students to share with parents and caregivers and to encourage discussion on these important topics.
Learn more about this curriculum and speak to the SRVUSD and Child Abuse Prevention Council staff at two meetings in August:
This curriculum is available for viewing in the district and school offices, and summaries of the lessons can be found at the Child Abuse Prevention Council’s website at https://www.capc-coco.org/childhelp-speak-up-be-safe.html.
For more information about the curriculum, please contact Carol Shenon, Child Safety Awareness Coordinator, Child Abuse Prevention Council of Contra Costa County at firstname.lastname@example.org .
As a PTA member you speak up for your children every day. Now, with the Click My Cause app, you have the power to speak up for all children with the press of a button. Here's how it works: when a PTA supported bill needs public support in Sacramento, we'll send you a mobile alert. As soon as you receive the alert:
1. From your iPhone, download the Click My Cause app from the App Store
a. Select your organization (PTA)
b. Select "ok" to allow notifications. You must allow notifications to receive our alerts
c. Take the quick tour and get started
a. On your organization home screen, you will see the list of bills we are tracking.
b. When there is a red "Act Now" button below a bill, it's time for you to take action and use the app to email Sacramento:
Click 1: "Act Now" button
Click 2: "Send Postcard"
3. We'll send you more alerts. When you see the alerts, there are 2 ways to act:
a. From the Alert on your iPhone screen:
Click 1: open the alert
Click 2: "send postcard" (Email)
b. From the Icon on your iPhone screen:
When you have an alert pending, the Click My Cause app will display a red badge with the number "1" in it. When you see this number, open your app.
By clicking "Send Postcard," an email will be delivered from you to your CA State Assembly Member, your CA State Senator, the committee or floor where the bill is pending, and the Governor.
4. Your First "Postcard"
5. Repeated Alerts
Look for alerts in June, August and September of this year. You may receive repeated alerts on the same bill as it progresses through the legislature. When you have a pending alert, the app icon will display a red badge with the number "1" on it.
