Our Vision

Is for our diverse learners to be empowered, prepared, and equipped with academic and life skills needed to be productive citizens who can positively contribute to society.

Our Goal

Is to create a Full Service Community-Based District School Partnership that works collaboratively to ensure all youth and families have support to reach their fullest potential: academically, socially, emotionally, and have access to integrated services.

Safety

We believe that all children should be safe, healthy, supported by meaningful adult allies, and have strong sense of self to develop into their fullest potential. We believe it is the responsibility of the Vallejo full service community-based school collaborative to ensure this occurs.

Full Service Community School

The Staff of Loma Vista is here to help all students achieve their academic and social potential.  We will be hiring an ASP to work with students, teachers, parents, and the principal to bring all resources together to achieve our goals.  If your family or your student would like to explore all that we have available in the VCUSD and at Loma Vista, visit room 35 today.

Spring Family Night was Tuesday, March 14, 2017

Many thanks to the Loma Vista families for attending the Spring Family Night.  Our Community Partners shared information and activities with students and parents ranging from healthful activities to the Girl Scouts to Fighting Back Partnerships and STEAM Education to name a few.  Everyone enjoyed a chicken salad dinner put together by Academic Support Provider Ms. Katherine Hill and the hardworking Loma Vista Team of Office Manager Ms. Liz San Nicolas, Clerk Ms. Barbara Gary, STEAM Content Specialist Mrs. Imelda Enos, Farmkeeper Assistant Mrs. Alisha White, Library Technician Mrs. Monica Martinez, Teacher Leader Mrs. Lali Sircar and Head Custodian Mr. Kevin Traveler.  The audience was treated to the spoken word Black History performances by students from Ms. Fran Mabry, Mrs. Elaine DiStefano, and Mrs. Shontae Wills.  Principal Britt Hammon and Solano County Worker Ms. Christian Moore presented information to the adults on Commercially Sexually Exploited Children.  It is a growing problem here in our community, and the VCUSD is moving to bring awareness and prevention to our families. A highlight of the evening was the awarding of certificates to the 38 students who scored well enough to be redesignated as English Fluent from English Learners.  We are very proud of the work these students have put in to learning and mastering the English language.

Interested in Becoming a School Volunteer?

VCUSD believes that parent participation in our schools is a great way to engage students and increase academic, social, and attendance goals.  For parents/guardians to become eligible to volunteer on campus and field trips, each adult must have a current clear TB test and have a Department of Justice fingerprint clearance through our Human Resources Department on Mare Island at 665 Walnut Ave, Vallejo.  Below is a description of the process, but the process can not be done on-line.

Restorative Justice at LVESA

Restorative Discipline Description:    The Vallejo City Unified School District believes that the school community is better served by building strong interpersonal relationships and reducing the amount of conflict between members than waiting for conflict and relying on discipline consequences.  The practice VCUSD and Loma Vista ESA has adopted is known as Restorative Justice

Restorative Justice is a set of principles that guide the response to conflict and harm.  There are three main goals:

1.       Accountability-Restorative justice strategies provide opportunities for wrongdoers to be accountable to those they have harmed, and enable them to repair the harm they caused to the extent possible.

2.       Community safety-Restorative justice recognizes the need to keep the community safe through strategies that build relationships and empower the community to take responsibility for the well-being of its members.

3.       Competency development-Restorative justice seeks to increase the pro-social skills of those who have harmed others, address underlying factors that lead youth to engage in delinquent behavior, and build on strengths in each young person.
