TITLE I – CRESTVIEW 2019-20 Policy-Compact SP 04/02/19-Spanish-
It is the policy of the Davis County School District and Crestview Elementary to promote a safe and orderly school environment for all students and employees. Criminal acts or disruptive behavior of any kind will not be tolerated, and any individual who engages in such activity will be subject to school disciplinary action as determined by school administrators, District disciplinary action as determined by the Department of Students Services Case Management Team (CMT), police referral, and/or prosecution. In determining appropriate discipline, school officials will consider the totality of the circumstances, including the severity of the offense, as well as the individual’s age, disability status, intent, academic status, and prior disciplinary record.
Crestview Elementary follows Davis District policy (5S-100) and Utah state law (53A-11a-101) governing bullying and hazing. These sources provide specific definitions for terms and governance.
Definition of Bullying (http://www.stopbullying.gov)
Bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior among school aged children that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time. In order to be considered bullying, the behavior must be aggressive and include:
An Imbalance of Power: Kids who bully use their power—such as physical strength, access to embarrassing information, or popularity—to control or harm others. Power imbalances can change over time and in different situations, even if they involve the same people.
Repetition: Bullying behaviors happen more than once or have the potential to happen more than once.
Bullying includes actions such as making threats, spreading rumors, attacking someone physically or verbally, and excluding someone from a group on purpose.
Definition of Hazing
“‘Hazing” means intentionally or knowingly committing an act that:
endangers the physical health or safety of a school employee or student;
involves any brutality of a physical nature such as whipping, beating, branding, calisthenics, bruising, electric shocking, placing of a harmful substance on the body, or exposure to the elements;
involves consumption of any food, liquor, drug, or other substance;
involves other physical activity that endangers the physical health and safety of a school employee or student; or
involves physically obstructing a school employee's or student's freedom to move;
and is done for the purpose of initiation or admission into, affiliation with, holding office in, or as a condition for, membership or acceptance, or continued membership or acceptance, in any school or school sponsored team, organization, program, or event; or if the person committing the act against a school employee or student knew that the school employee or student is a member of, or candidate for, membership with a school, or school sponsored team, organization, program, or event to which the person committing the act belongs to or participates in.”
Definition of Cyber-Bullying
“‘Cyber-bullying, means using the Internet, a cell phone, or another device to send or post text, video, or an image with the intent or knowledge, or with reckless disregard, that the text, video, or image will hurt, embarrass, or threaten an individual, regardless of whether the individual directed, consented to, or acquiesced in the conduct, or voluntarily accessed the electronic communication.”
Definition of Harassment
“‘Harassment’ means repeatedly communicating to another individual, in an objectively demeaning or disparaging manner, statements that contribute to a hostile learning or work environment for the individual.”
Definition of Retaliate
“‘Retaliate’ means an act or communication intended 1) as retribution against a person for reporting bullying or hazing; or 2) to improperly influence the investigation of, or the response to, a report of bullying or hazing.”
No school employee or student may engage in bullying or harassing a school employee or student: 1) on school property; 2) at a school related or sponsored event; 3) on a school bus; 4) at a school bus stop; or 5) while the school employee or student is traveling to or from a location or event
No school employee or student may engage in hazing or cyber-bullying a school employee or student at any time or in any location.
No school employee or student may engage in retaliation against: 1) a school employee; 2) a student; or 3) an investigator for, or a witness of, an alleged incident of bullying, cyber-bullying, harassment, hazing, or retaliation.
No school employee or student may make a false allegation of bullying, cyber-bullying, harassment, hazing, or retaliation against a school employee or student.
The school is obligated to notify parents of: 1) a student's threat to commit suicide; and 2) an incident of bullying, cyber-bullying, harassment, hazing, or retaliation involving the parent's student.
As per the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), information regarding students, including disciplinary action taken, is restricted to school personnel and the students’ legal guardians.
School faculty and staff: 1) teach, remind, and rehearse appropriate behavior, including proper reporting; 2) take appropriate disciplinary action with consideration to the totality of the circumstances and the individual; 3) maintain up-to-date records of incidents and action taken; 4) communicate with parents regarding behavior issues; 5) provide supervision during school hours; 6) regularly assess times and locations when and where issues arise. The school counselor: 1) teaches regular classroom lessons to build social skills; 2) meets with students individually and in small groups; 3) assists teachers and other staff in the development of bullying and harassment prevention.
Parents can help by: 1) setting an example of positive social interactions; 2) report incidents to the teacher first, then administration, as early as possible; 3) explain and practice with students how to deal with confrontational situations and difficult people; 4) encourage prompt and accurate reporting over retaliation.
Davis Education Foundation Computers for Kids
In the interest of helping students to succeed and making the most of the taxpayer’s investment in our schools, Davis Education Foundation in cooperation with Davis School District is refurbishing computers that would be sold as salvage and making them available to students who would not otherwise have access to a computer in their home. While these systems are certainly not state-of-the-art, they will meet the needs for most students at home. We have a limited number of these computers and, therefore, wish to award them to students who have the greatest need and would make the best use of the gift. Please do not apply if you already have a working computer in your home.
The computers are complete systems. They include a CPU with CD-ROM, keyboard, mouse, and monitor. The original operating system is installed, along with some personal productivity shareware and at least one or two gb RAM running Windows XP. The systems have been thoroughly tested and are in good working condition, but are not warranted by Davis Education Foundation, Davis School District or the manufacturer.
To be considered for one of these systems, complete the following application and return it to your principal.

H.E.L.P.strives to hire and train the best qualified staff. All staff must be highly qualified according to the Davis School District. Our staff are committed to providing engaging opportunities to the youth participating in our program.
H.E.L.P. utilizes many different ways to communicate and pass on information to our families. The use of phone trees, emails,newsletters and flyers will be used throughout the school year to get information to our families.
As students participate in activities, it is important for them to have proper dress for the occasion. Please make sure you provide appropriate clothing for weather activities. The staff will follow the District’s policy on dress code.
Parent concerns, opinions, and suggestions are encouraged at any time. Communication with the site director, or staff assistants is encouraged. The D.E.D. is continually building community partnerships. We are always looking for parent involvement in building community awareness in the importance of after school programs.
Parents are encouraged to participate and volunteer in the program at anytime.
A Parent Center will be available at the program site. It will display parent calendars and newsletters, which will inform parents of what is happening in their student’s program.
The center will make available information on upcoming events and additional parenting resources. It will also have a schedule for the day as well as current contact information.
H.E.L.P. operates with the help of many volunteers in the community. These volunteers are required to sign in and out and review the program goals. We do not allow our volunteers to be alone with the students at any time. There is always a paid staff present to provide supervision.
Enrollment in the program shall be granted without regard to race, sex, religion, color,
national origin, or ability to pay. Enrollment is open to any student who has a need for an extended day program. Student grades K-6 are eligible to participate in the Davis Extended Day and are enrolled on a “first come, first served” basis or referral by a teacher or the principal.
Children with special needs (physical, emotional or mental disabilities) are eligible to participate in H.E.L.P. as long as existing staff are able to provide adequately for the student’s needs in the Extended Day setting. We are not able to accommodate students who do not have age appropriate hygiene skills. We also cannot accommodate students who are unable to follow the Roles & Responsibilities.
Parents of students with special needs are required to make an appointment with the site director prior to registering the students in the program.
The D.E.D enrollment will be open to all students attending the school site. The enrollment capacity will be established by the site director and principal according to the needs and space available at the school.
Before your student can begin participation in H.E.L.P. a registration packet must be completed. The registration packet includes:
1. Youth Information
2. Parent/Legal Guardian Information
3. Emergency Contacts
4. Special Health Needs (allergies, medical needs, etc.)
5. People other than the parent/guardian who are authorized to pick up the youth
6. Fieldtrip/Transportation Release
7. Emergency Medical Treatment Release
8. A Computer and Internet Acceptable Use Agreement(on file in school office).
A Current emergency information and medical treatment form will be kept on file for each student. It will also be copied and taken on all field trips. It is the parent's responsibility to keep the program informed of any change in their child’s emergency, medical or physical conditions. In case of serious illness or injury, the staff will follow parental instructions written on the student’s medical treatment release form. However, in all cases, staff will call for emergency assistance in situations that are deemed to be serious enough in nature as to cause harm to your child’s life.
Students are required (per grant specifications) to work on homework for 30 minutes during program hours. This may include classroom reading or other homework provided by the classroom teacher. Each staff will assist students with any homework on a daily basis during that 30 minutes. If students do not complete daily homework during that time, it will be sent home and become the parent’s responsibility to help their student complete it. If you have any specific homework needs for your child that the D.E.D program can help with please contact the site director.
Sign In/Out Procedure
The following procedures will be followed when youth arrive or leave the program.
Each youth must be signed in and out of the program by an authorized person listed on the registration form. When signing out you must include the date and time the youth arrives or leaves.
Persons signing youth in or out of the program shall use identifiers, such as a signature or initials and have photo identification if they are unknown to the provider.
Only parents or persons with written authorization from parents will be allowed to take youth from the program. In emergency situations, the parent may give verbal authorization to the program staff. The staff will question anyone that is unfamiliar to them and check their authorization to pick up a student. If someone else is picking up the student, notification to the site director is required in writing.
Parents are required to provide their own transportation for the student’s pick-up each day. Whenever a student is picked up, a responsible adult must go in and sign the student out on their student’s sign-out sheet.
All children must be signed IN to the before school program each morning. The school works with the fire and police department to set up a safe walking path to school with lights and cross guards. This is not the case in the early before school hours. If this will not work with your family please consider asking another before school parent to assist with this issue, or have your child wait and just walk to school when it is going to start. Remember that these programs are an option and for the good of your child. Please help support us with this.
Arrival to Program
Youth in grades K-6th will arrive to the cafeteria from their school day classrooms on their own. They are to walk directly to the extended day program immediately following the school bell.
The staff will take a roll within the first 15 minutes of the program. Any child unaccounted for will have a call to home to check on the child. If no answer the staff will then go down the contact list to find a responsible adult to verify the whereabouts of the child. In an event that no parent or contact is available the staff will make a written note of the efforts on their sign out chart and the local police will be contacted. Remember that early efforts to locate the child will also include talking to the principal, checking the school absent list, talking with the school teacher and other children in the program.
Departure from Program
Each youth’s registration form indicates that the only available departure from the program consists of an authorized person signing the child out. There will be NO walking home from the program without that signature. You may have a friend of the family, neighbor, or other sibling (as long as they are in jr.high and listed on the approval to sign out list) sign out your child. This is for the safety of your child and the program.
We release your student as indicated on their registration form. Please contact the D.E.D program office in the event that a departure option has changed.

Abuse, neglect, or dependency of a child can be physical, or sexual.
Exclusion of Staff and Youth
If a youth has a communicable disease, the youth must be removed from the program until the proper treatment has been completed and/or the doctor releases the student.
Youth with any of, but not limited to, the following symptoms should not attend the D.E.D Program:

We do not care for ill youth. If your student shows signs of illness after arriving at the facility, we will separate the him/her from the other youth. If your student becomes ill during program time, the Site Director will contact you and require you or an authorized person to pick the student up from the program. If a parent cannot be reached, the youth’s emergency contact numbers will be called. (see “Should I send my child to school? Form)
We prefer not to give any medication to youth, but if a youth is to receive any medication during the hours of the program, the following policies must be adhered to. Our program will administer medication to a youth only after receiving a completed Authorization for School Personnel to Administer Medication form. If your child is in need of medication during D.E.D program hours you may receive the Administration form from your site director.
For the safety of your student, we ask parents to notify the Davis Extended Day Office if their youth will not be attending the program according to registration guideline In the event of illness, vacation or other activities on a regularly scheduled attendance day. The D.S.D Program site director needs to be notified by parents either through a written note or personal phone call. If the youth has attended the school day and has not arrived to the program, staff will attempt to notify a parent or emergency contact. If parents, guardians, and emergency contacts cannot be reached and the child is not located, local law enforcement will be called. (include your own school attendance specifics)
Transportation / Field Trips
At our program we do not transport after the program. Our program policies apply to the transportation of youth to and from off-site activities through the school district.
For youth attending any field trips, a transportation release form will need to be signed by the parent or guardian (included on registration process).
If there are delays with the return of a field trip, a program staff member on the field trip will notify the program office, then parents or legal guardians will be notified by a program staff on site. The program cell phone will be taken on all field trips.
If a minor accident or injury (a scrape, cut, bump, etc.) occurs with a youth during program times the staff person attending to the youth will administer minimal first aid. If a more sever incident occurs (hitting their head, open wound etc) an incident report will be filled out. A copy of the report, including how the incident occurred and steps taken will be given to the parents upon pick up of their child.
Computer Use and Internet Safety
It is the policy of H.E.L.P. to permit students to have internet access. An Acceptable Use Contract must be signed by the student and his/her parent or guardian. This contract is maintained in the school office.
The D.E.D. program is an equal opportunity employer, and holds that all employees, parents, and youth shall be free from all forms of discrimination and conduct which can be considered harassing, coercive, disruptive, or in violation of any civil rights.
Employees, parents, and youth wishing to appeal decisions and/or actions made by the D.E.D. Program shall first discuss the complaint with the Site Director. The Site Director shall conduct an investigation into the complaint as deemed necessary.
The Site Director may also include the school principal, counselor, or your child’s school day teacher if needed to help resolve the issue.
You may always use the suggestion box to address any problems, concerns or ideas of the program.
It is the goal of the D.E.D. Program to guide youth in becoming happy, responsible, cooperative participants through positive, non-threatening teaching techniques. We want to increase youth’s respect for themselves by guiding them to become responsible for their own actions, and to help them grow in their respect for the rights and feelings of other people. It is our policy to avoid forms of discipline that might impair the youth’s self-respect. The staff’s role is one of a strong leader and role model helping youth grow towards self-discipline and self-direction. Every effort will be made to obtain information that will help us understand your youth. This may include conferences with parents, classroom teachers, site director, staff assistants and school principals. When behavior problems arise, youth will be given options. We will find out what works best for each youth. The program uses discipline to encourage the youth’s self-control and reduce risk of injury and any adverse health effects to self or others. The program will use the following positive discipline measures: (Example)(Please include your own discipline and reward policy here)
o Listen to youth’s concerns and answer their questions
o Respect each youth’s point of view
o Encourage creativity, growth and foster self-esteem in each youth
o Provide positive reinforcement and mild consequences to the youth for negative conduct
o Encourage problem solving and critical thinking
Emergency and Disaster Preparedness
Our program has an emergency and disaster plan which follows the schools procedures for reporting emergencies and evacuating the facility. This written plan is at the school and immediately accessible to all staff, substitutes and volunteers. Evacuation plans are posted in prominent locations of each room or area that the D.E.D program operates in. The program holds quarterly emergency drills which are documented. The program is inspected annually by the local fire authority and maintains fire extinguishers with a current tag.
Evacuation site: If there is an emergency or disaster which requires us to leave our site, we will evacuate to _________________________________. If that site does not work out, our back up evacuation site is ________________________________.
We will transport the youth to the evacuation site by walking.
The program emergency and disaster plan is as follows:
The person in charge is the Site Director.
The person with decision making authority is the Program Director.
People who will be notified in an emergency are the School principal,Program Manager and parents.
