Attention ALL Seniors! Do you need help filling out the Financial Aid Application (FAFSA) or DREAM Act Application? On Thursday, October 19th SJHS will be holding a Cash for College Workshop. Parents, guardians, and students can stop by anytime between 3:00 and 7:00 pm in Room 21.  Counselors, Financial Aid Personnel, and the DCAC Advisor will be helping with the process. They will be working with students and parents/guardians to fill out the FAFSA and DREAM Act Applications and to help with any issues or questions that may arise. Cash_for_College_Flyer.pdf

California Healthy Youth Act

In January 2016, the state approved the California Healthy Youth Act. This law requires that all school districts provide comprehensive sexual health education and disease prevention to students at least once in middle school and at least once in high school. The SJUSD School Board approved that this curriculum is delivered in grades 8 and 9. These education programs are meant to encourage students to communicate with their parents, guardians, or other trusted adults about human sexuality and healthy relationships. The information provided will be medically accurate, age-appropriate, and inclusive of all students.

Please note that this instruction will be delivered by Planned Parenthood at San José High School in 9th Grade PE classes from October 30 - November 15, 2017, in order to guarantee that students receive accurate information from Health Educators in the field.

If you want to learn more about the program, please attend one of the scheduled Parent Information Nights:

If you do not want your student to participate in comprehensive sexual health education and disease prevention education, please submit a written request to the Principal of your student’s school by September 30th or in advance of the curriculum delivery.
