Playfighting is a form of Bullying

From an article by Kenzi Bizbing, Youth Services Manager, Oakland Mediation Center

Dr. Dan Olweus defines bullying as "when someone repeatedly and on purpose says or does mean or hurtful things to another person who has a hard time defending himself or herself." Bullying behavior has three key components. First, it is a form of aggression. Second, it is a repeated behavior. This is not to say that adults should wait until they see a pattern before intervening. Adults rarely see the pattern. Third, there is an imbalance of power or strength. This imbalance of power can be physical, emotional, verbal, and subtle and makes it difficult for youth to defend themselves. There are several things that influence how much power a person has– social status, gender, race, religion, abilities, money, real or perceived sexual orientation, etc. Overall, it is important to remember that bullying is a form of peer abuse.

Vallejo City Participatory Budget Approves Funding to fix Loma Vista's Streets

Loma Vista Environmental Science Academy has been asking for help getting Rainier and Olympic Streets repaved for many years.  Last year PTA President Mrs. Gaby Gonzalez contacted a television news station to highlight the poor condition of the road which serves Loma Vista, the Loma Vista Farm, and neighboring charter school MITA.  The project has received approval as part of the Vallejo City Participatory Budget Cycle 3.  Thank you to all Vallejo citizens who voted to fund this project!!!!

Update: 

$105,462 in funding was used to leverage a Safe Routes to School (SR2S) grant at Wardlaw Elementary that will enable Public Works to significantly expand its scope of work.

Wardlaw Elementary is particularly unsafe school/traffic area, with unsafe crosswalks, insufficient street parking/areas for loading and unloading, and 4 lanes of traffic at high speeds. The SR2S project, combined with the PB Project funding, will allow Public Works to completely repave the entire street while installing numerous safety devices and measures. The was completed in Fall 2016.

The balance in remaining funds ($159,538) will be used to repave Rainier Avenue and Olympic Avenue (VCUSD-owned roads adjacent to MIT Academy, Loma Vista Farm, and Loma Vista Elementary School) in Summer 2017.
