SWAT office - home of the Truant Recovery Program?
- At the Richmond Public Library there is a flyer posted in the window
signed by Dr. Gloria Johnston, Ph.D Superintendent of Schools and
Sylvester Greenwood Assistant Superintendent Pupil Support Services
THE SCHOOL-COMMUNITY POLICE TRUANT RECOVERY PROGRAM
MAKES CONTACT WITH OVER 1000 STUDENTS AND THEIR PARENTS
EACH YEAR. THE PROGRAM IS A PREVENTITIVE RATHER THAN PUNITIVE
PROGRAM AND ITS PURPOSE IS TO KEEP YOUTH IN SCHOOL AND OFF THE
STREETS DURING SCHOOL HOURS.
The first thing listed on this flyer is that
LOCAL POLICE JURISDICTRIONS MAKE CONTACT WITH STUDENTS
ON THE STREETS DURING SCHOOL HOURS
#2 says STUDENTS WITHOUT A VALIDATED EXCUSE SLIP FOR BEING OUT OF
SCHOOL WILL BE TRANSPORTED TO THE WCCUSD STUDENT WELFARE AND
ATTENDANCE OFFICE AT 157 9TH STREET AND PARENTS WILL BE CONTACTED AND
REQUIRED TO REPORT TO THE STUDENT WELFARE AND ATTENDANCE OFFICE
Now folks, I have no idea how long this flyer has been in the
window. Of course it is not dated.
We have so many cities to cover! If our district had a collaboration
with the law enforcement of each city then that is news to me. We
saw just what happens when people get together about an issue over in
Pinole. It is exciting to hear about the things that worked at
Pinole Valley High for safety last year. I heard a crazy rumor that
good behavior was actually being rewarded!!!
I find it hard to believe this information and if we have such a
wonderful program, why is our graduation rate dropping? why are
great, smart kids falling through the cracks?
Well, if he board does bring in the sheriff dept to handle security,
the department has a really cool name.
Can the diff cities report about any known collaborations like what I
read about in that window? Or board members?
