The rural Julian Union School District serves 322 students in ESK-8th grade in two contiguously located schools. Although our student population is small, our geographic boundaries encompass more than 600 square miles of mountain and desert regions, including two Indian reservations. The Julian Pathways Center for Family, Schools and Community (Pathways) provides support services to all district students and families as well as children ages 0-5 and their families. Pathways provides a spectrum of integrated support (spanning the areas of youth development, family services, academic enrichment, health and mental health) including 21st Century Community Learning and ASES extended learning programs, Intergenerational Safe Routes to Schools, Farm to School nutrition program and educational school garden, and Drug Free Communities.
Generation Citizen (GC) strengthens our community and our nation’s democracy by empowering young people to become advocates for change. Focusing primarily on low-income, minority students, GC changes how civics is taught, equipping middle and high school youth to make their voices heard by teaching them how to take action and make real change. Through an innovative in-class curriculum, students work with local leaders to fix local problems and increase equity in the community.
In addition to our core model – whereby college volunteers (“Democracy Coaches”) co-lead the Common Core State Standards-aligned in-class curriculum over the course of a semester – GC also offers training and Technical Assistance for teacher-led models, notably in communities where GC is otherwise unable to access/serve.
GC is currently projected to serve over 40 different classrooms in 18 different middle and high schools throughout San Francisco, Oakland, Berkeley and Richmond.
The City of San Pablo has five elementary schools: Dover, Downer, Riverside, Bayview and Lake and one junior high school: Walter T. Helms Middle School. In 2012, the City of San Pablo passed a resolution to make all of its schools Community Schools. Currently, Walter T. Helms Middle School is the pilot site and an emerging community school. In the new 2015-2016 school year, City of San Pablo and West Contra Costa Unified School District will be working together in implementing the community school strategy in two San Pablo elementary schools.
