The Great Kindness Challenge

Next week many of our schools will be participating in the Great Kindness Challenge.  The Great Kindness Challenge is a proactive and positive bullying prevention program that improves school climate and increases student engagement. The Great Kindness Challenge is one week devoted to performing as many acts of kindness as possible on campus. Be on the lookout for information regarding special activities and spirit days from your school.

WeTip Anonymous Reporting System

At the beginning of February we will be launching a new anonymous reporting system, WeTip, customized for our school district.  This new reporting system will allow users to report crime, bullying, or any other misconduct by phone, text or web submission.  The WeTip reporting system allows for two way communication while keeping your identity 100% anonymous.  A reporting link will be added to all our school websites, and flyers will be posted around campuses.  We are dedicated to always improving campus safety and want to provide students and families with a safe and easy way to report concerns.  More details will be provided in the next few weeks.

Families in Schools Focus Groups

Hueneme ESD has partnered with the organization, Families in Schools, to help us build strong school family partnerships.  The mission of Families In Schools is to involve parents and communities in their children’s education to achieve lifelong success.  As part of our partnership, Families in Schools will be holding family focus groups at every school site over the next few months to get your input on how we can improve.  Principals will provide details for each school specific focus group.  We look forward to working together as we continue to build strong school family partnerships.
