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

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.

Do you remember what it was like to enter middle school, or any new school? Sometimes it's a great experience, and sometimes it's not the best. WEB Leaders are 8th graders who are positive role models for 6th grade students (as well as the entire DVMS student body) and leaders of the school.

 

ATTENTION: At Diablo Vista Middle School WEB is not an elective or an extra class you have to take. Therefore, you are still able to take the electives you want, in addition to being part of this extraordinary program!

Applications are due February 14.

Youth 2 Youth 2018

 

Registration Link: https://tinyurl.com/Y2Y2018
 What:  24th Annual Youth to Youth Middle School Conference
 When:  March 24, 2018
 Where:  Castro Valley High School, 19400 Santa Maria Ave., Castro Valley
 Time:  7:45 P– 10:00 P.M.
 Cost:  $45 before February 24; $55 after February 24


The Youth to Youth model creates opportunities for teens to support each other in decisions to be drug-free.  One of the strongest predictors of adolescent drug use is association with drug-using peers.  The youth staff simply says that Youth to Youth is about kids helping other kids stay drug-free.  The conference is an entire day where youth get together, have fun and talk about some really important issues.

More than 100 high school students will work at the conference, guiding their middle school peers through skits, games, panel discussions and small-group activities.  More than 20 workshops will be offered throughout the day.  Some of the topics to be covered include building self-esteem, stress reduction, drug and alcohol abuse, positive body image, dating and relationship troubles, self-defense, jazz dancing, art, and communication skills.  True stories of teens and substance abuse will be a key element of the conference.  There will also be small group discussions, a motivational speaker and a dance at the end of the conference.

The learning and fun continues from morning till night during a Y2Y conference.   The day is very interactive, high energy and youth are kept moving from activity to activity.
If your students’ like hanging out with their friends, meeting new friends, having fun, dancing, and good food – then this is the conference for them.   More than just an “event”, the Youth to Youth Middle School Conference is a way to see the best in teens and their leadership skills.

 

Youth to Youth’s principles are simple:
Youth 2 Youth program is youth driven, every teen is given the opportunity to take on leadership roles and each young person is guided in developing assets within themselves.

 

Do not miss out on this potentially life-changing, saving, and enhancing experience! 

 

*Attending the conference will count for three hours of Soaring Eagle community service

Dear DV families,

 

I would like to give a heartfelt thank you on behalf of Walter Helms Middle School and Diablo Vista Leadership.  With your help, we were able to support approximately 100 people in having a happy holiday.  Helms is out sister school and we do what we can to support our extended family.

 

We asked them what else they need, and their request was simple.  They are in need of warm jackets and clothing.  We would like to support them in having a warm coat drive, so as you are cleaning out your closets, if you find that you have gently used coats to spare, we would be happy to deliver them to Helms.

 

Please send gently used or new warm clothes and jackets to room 1.67. We will deliver January 17.

 

Contact Mrs. Pappachan if you have questions.
