Rocklin Unified School District

Family Engagement Framework
 
A TOOL FOR CALIFORNIA SCHOOL DISTRICTS
 
In support of establishing strong, healthy, and systematic
school, family, and community partnerships statewide,
the California Department of Education (CDE) engaged
the assistance of the California Comprehensive Center at
WestEd (CA CC) to develop a tool describing expectations
and implementation strategies for integrated family
engagement within state educational programs. This Family
Engagement Framework is intended to provide guidance to
educators, districts, schools, families, and communities
as they plan, implement, and evaluate strategies across
multiple programs for effective family engagement to
support student achievement and close the academic
achievement gap.

Coalition for Placer Youth Parent Pledge 2.0
 
Hashtag Campaign is On!
 
 
The Coalition for Placer Youth is dedicated to preventing and reducing youth substance use in Placer County as well as being committed to a healthier community for youth and their families. In past years, CPY has had a tremendous and positive response from our Parent Pledge Campaign to increase parent and community dedication in these efforts.
 
Research shows that teens identify parents as the number on influence in their lives and kids who learn about drug risks from their parents are 50 percent less likely to use alcohol.  If you think your teen isn’t listening, think again.
 
Teens will listen if they sense that parents value their input and feelings, and if there is ongoing two-way dialogue. Discuss drugs and alcohol as part of everyday conversations.
 
Don’t wait to have “The Talk.” Use “teachable moments” from TV shows, radio songs, advertisements, your teen’s friends, or someone under the influence.
 
The Coalition for Placer Youth is launched a Parent Pledge 2.0 Hashtag Campaign titled,  #IMadeThePledge to utilize the power of social media to support parents, teens and families by spreading positive stories and resources through our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages. From September 5th – September 30th, we will have a new Hashtag Campaign each week on a theme that supports youth, parents and families. We invite you to follow us on these sites and participate to spread the great choices that teens, parents and families are making in Placer County!  Below are the themes for each September week with the Hashtags to use during these weeks. We are thrilled to highlight the positive activities and coping strategies of teens and families in Placer County and look forward to your posts on the following sites. Please invite your teen to follow us on our new teen led Instagram and Twitter pages that will be launching with this September Campaign:  #IMadeThePledge.

What can you do to help your teen have a fun and safe Senior Ball?

  
Senior Ball is a special night for many teens. It is a chance to dress up, go out on a date, and a night to remember with friends. Senior Ball is also a night when teens experience an increased pressure to drink and get high.
 
Senior Ball can still be magical without getting drunk or high. Talk with them about making positive choices on Senior Ball night. Discuss Senior Ball plans while encouraging a fun, memorable, and sober evening.
 
Visit CoalitionForPlacerYouth.org for information about the latest marijuana trends.
