Our school safety plan was last reviewed and approved by the School Site Council in Fall 2018. The plan, which is reviewed annually, focuses on ensuring all school staff members are prepared to respond to any emergency. We hold monthly safety drills to ensure all staff and students know emergency procedures. These drills include earthquake, fire, and lockdown drills. Our safety goals focus on increasing students’ feeling of safety on campus and holding regular safety drills to ensure a safe and orderly school environment.

Opportunities for Parental Involvement (School Year 2018-19)

Fairwood recognizes the importance of family involvement in children’s education and strives to welcome families into the classroom by encouraging their active involvement in the school. Fairwood Explorer encourages parents to be actively involved in their child’s classroom through weekly participation. Parents also lead after school programs including Destination Imagination and lead activities such as Project Cornerstone’s Asset Building Champions program. Finally, parent representatives serve on our School Site Council, English Learners Advisory Committee, and the Fairwood Explorer Alliance Board. We strive to involve parents through a variety of social and educational events designed to increase parents’ connection to each other and to our school.

State Priority: Pupil Achievement
The SARC provides the following information relevant to the State priority: Pupil Achievement (Priority 4):
• Statewide assessments (i.e., California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress [CAASPP] System, which includes the Smarter Balanced Summative Assessments for students in the general education population and the California Alternate Assessments [CAAs] for English language arts/literacy [ELA] and mathematics given in grades three through eight and grade eleven. Only eligible students may participate in the administration of the CAAs. CAAs items are aligned with alternate achievement standards, which are linked with the Common Core State Standards [CCSS] for students with the most significant cognitive disabilities); and
• The percentage of students who have successfully completed courses that satisfy the requirements for entrance to the University of California and the California State University, or career technical education sequences or programs of study.

Note: Percentages are not calculated when the number of students tested is ten or less, either because the number of students in this category is too small for statistical accuracy or to protect student privacy.
Note: ELA and mathematics test results include the Smarter Balanced Summative Assessment and the CAA. The “Percent Met or Exceeded” is calculated by taking the total number of students who met or exceeded the standard on the Smarter Balanced Summative Assessment plus the total number of students who met the standard (i.e., achieved Level 3–Alternate) on the CAAs divided by the total number of students who participated in both assessments.

Note: Double dashes (–) appear in the table when the number of students is ten or less, either because the number of students in this category is too small for statistical accuracy or to protect student privacy.
Note: The number of students tested includes all students who participated in the test whether they received a score or not; however, the number of students tested is not the number that was used to calculate the achievement level percentages. The achievement level percentages are calculated using only students who received scores.
