Safe School Efforts
As a school district, our highest priority is providing a safe, nurturing environment for students to learn. SRVUSD is a strong partner in the community's efforts to create and maintain a healthy and safe community for all! 
 
This section of our website provides comprehensive information about policies, programs and other outreach strategies in place in the district. This list is not complete, but provides a glimpse into the district's safe school efforts.

District-wide Climate Surveys – Grades 4-12

To see a sample of the survey being given in grades 4-12, please click on the links below:
 
 
 
 

Majority of students feel "safe" according to survey

In April, approximately 20,000 SRVUSD students, grades 4-12, participated in the District’s 2nd Annual Bullying Prevention and Awareness survey.  The purpose of this survey was to ask our local youth what types of bullying they see and/or feel and what adults on our local school campuses can do to reduce/prevent bullying behaviors.

“Gathering this information, using multiple measurement tools, has been a great way to verify the data and see what programs have been effective and where we still have a need to improve.” Said Scott Gerbert, SRVUSD Coordinator for Student Services. 

According to both survey instruments, the percentage of students who “feel safe on campus” has steadily improved over the last few years.  According to the California Healthy Kids Survey data, middle school students who report feeling “safe” at school has grown by 10% over the last 5 years.  In addition, high school students, according to our District Survey, report feeling “safe” or “very safe” 88% of the time at school.  The high school survey was taken in April by 7,524 students in grades 9-12 and includes all six high schools in the District.

Form for Suspected Bullying

The San Ramon Valley Unified School District is committed to protecting students and staff members and preventing discrimination on our campuses. SRVUSD believes that our students have the right to be free of bullying, intimidation and harassment while on any of our campuses or associated with any school/district related activity. In accordance with these beliefs and commitments, SRVUSD has adopted Board Policy 5145.3

All students, employees, parents and community members should report incidents of suspected bullying immediately. If you witness or suspect bullying, please complete the following fillable form and immediately forward to the school principal. An investigation will be conducted to determine if bullying occurred and corrective action needed.

-FORM FOR SUSPECTED BULLYING-

"Bullying" is defined as: physical, verbal, nonverbal or written conduct that is so severe and pervasive that it affects a student's ability to participate in or benefit from an education program or activity; creates an intimidating, threatening, hostile, or offensive educational environment; has the effect of substantially or unreasonably interfering with a student's academic performance; or otherwise adversely affects a student's educational opportunities.

SRVUSD Climate Committee

The District Climate Committee was formed in 2001 at the request of the Board of Education.  The purpose of the committee, which is comprised of district staff and students, is to serve as a district resource and support in creating a positive climate on all San Ramon Valley Unified School District campuses.  The committee meets quarterly to discuss current climate issues at the site and district levels, shares appropriate resources, learns and studies together and creates and endorses district initiatives that support positive school climate.


School Climate Committees at all middle schools and high schools - All secondary schools have established their own site climate committees in order to effectively identify site specific climate issues and to develop appropriate strategies to deal with them.  These site committees are linked to the district’s committee and have representative membership.  Site committee members include staff, students and in some cases, parents.

Comprehensive School Safety Plans

The development of a comprehensive school safety plan is mandated by California Education Code 32281.  This mandate, which was established by Senate Bill 187, states that each school’s Site Council, or a Safety Planning Committee authorized by the Site Council, shall develop a “safety plan” relevant to the needs and resources of the school.  "Safety", in terms of these plans includes aspects of social, emotional, AND physical safety for both youth and adults at our schools.  In order to improve the community's knowledge of what school sites are doing regarding these areas of "safety", we are developing a searchable database where anyone in the community can search by school, activity name/type, grade level, and even one of the District's six character traits (citizenship, empathy, fairness, respect, responsibility, and trustworthiness).

If you are interested in seeing the "action plans" for school sites, please visit your school's web site and look for their "comprehensive school safety plan".  If you would like to see plans from previous years, please click here .
