Regular School Year Services

SPEECH AND DEBATE

SPEECH AND DEBATE

Speech and Debate offers migrant students an opportunity to compete academically in a safe and supportive environment, which fosters teamwork, self-confidence and teaches students to resolve conflicts using thoughtful and strategic language. Students develop skills in public speaking and debate through learning experiences that challenge students to increase their vocabulary, write persuasive essays, use technology to research topics, and effectively speak in a public forum. In the process of learning to deliver speeches and participate in debates, students collaborate with their peers, participate as a team to achieve success, sharpen their critical thinking, research, and public speaking skills, and learn to think on their feet. The Speech & Debate Competition is a continuation of ongoing ELA instruction during the year and prepares students to participate actively and successfully in the Migrant Education State Speech and Debate Competition. Students participating in this program will increase their communication and research skills. 
ELA-STEM ACADEMY (Woodland)

ELA-STEM ACADEMY (Woodland)

In collaboration with the Future Educator Support (FES) Program, Region 2 provides ELA Intervention-STEM Academies for Migratory Students residing in the Davis Joint and Esparto Unified School Districts. The academy is for students in primary, middle and high school levels. Each academy will provide up to 35 hours of intensive ELA instruction, and offered on seven consecutive Saturdays. The primary objective is to address the learning gaps in reading and writing. Students will read a variety of expository texts including newspaper articles, scientific journals and nonfiction readers that are descriptive, provide an insight into cause and effect and allow students a moment of comparison. This academy provides a space for students to explore STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics)-related concepts and develop an interest and passion for pursuing a career in the field of STEM. 
JOURNALISM ACADEMY

JOURNALISM ACADEMY

This service will utilize the Loyola University "Journalism for English Learners" curriculum for students in grades 3rd – 6th. This program consists of a total of 40 – 50 hours of engaging, active participation in the writing process through experiential learning of putting together a local newspaper to distribute to the local community. The Academy will run either on Saturdays or after school, or a combination of the two schedules. Students are divided into grade level clusters: 3rd – 4th and 5th – 6th. One newspaper will be published that includes written works from students in Region 2 academies.

Students will participate in read-aloud, literature-based instruction, free reading time, book discussions, book sharing, vocabulary sharing, reading logs, letter writing, journal writing, writing book reviews, research reports on people that were struggling readers, and one on one conferences with the teacher. The students will engage in discussions, real-world and personal application of the themes, and short projects based on the books. Students familiar with the topics, vocabulary, scenes, and experiences related to the books will enrich and expand the discussions. Twice a month, students will participate in whole-class instruction and hands-on activities based on selected expository texts or the read-aloud book. Students will have access to Chromebooks, iPads or other technology to conduct research.
MATH CHAMPIONS

MATH CHAMPIONS

This program is an afterschool math service for 4th – 6th grade students. In addition to the 4th - 6th grade program, the Region will pilot two sections of Math Champions in Yuba City USD for 2nd graders who need additional work on number sense, addition and subtraction of whole numbers to 20, using the relationship between addition and subtraction and other 1st grade math skills. Students participate in math activities, skills based games, team problem solving, and process learning. Teachers will help students set goals, evaluate, and acknowledge their growth throughout the service. Students will become more confident as their accuracy and problem-solving skills.  At the Family Math Literacy Nights, parents learn ways they can help their children develop math skills at home. When possible, Math Champions will collaborate with existing afterschool programs such as ASES.
EXTENDED DAY TUTORIAL (Oroville)

EXTENDED DAY TUTORIAL (Oroville)

Extended day tutorial will be held in Fall River and Colusa. Students will be instructed and supported in the completion of their homework by certificated teachers.

Classroom teachers and the extended day tutorial teachers meet regularly to discuss areas of concern for students. The Instructional Program Specialist (IPS) will check in with the teachers throughout the year. The IPS will check students' transcripts quarterly to see how students are doing.  In school districts where no after school supports are offered, Family Support Paraprofessionals and Intervention Specialists will provide "Student Support" through after school tutoring to migrant students to provide motivation and support for students to complete their homework and missing assignments.
MORNING BOOST FOR K-8 (SANTA ROSA)

Students will be exposed to expository texts, primarily non-fiction readings and essays.  Activities are designed to enhance vocabulary knowledge and focus on words with multiple meanings, analogies and shades of meaning, idiomatic expressions as well as Latin and Greek affix and root meanings. For students most in need of support in mathematics, the program will help students to connect the foundational concepts of mathematics to the symbols, language and have robust discourse about math. 
PREK-K REFERRAL SERVICE 

PREK-K REFERRAL SERVICE 

Family Support Paraprofessionals (FSPs) will collaborate with school districts to determine preschool and kindergarten registration windows and to identify students in need of Home Based or Family Biliteracy services.

PARENT ADVISORY COUNCIL (PAC)

PARENT ADVISORY COUNCIL (PAC)

Region 2 has three active parent advisory committees, one in each Area (Santa Rosa, Woodland, and Oroville). These three PACs make up the Regional Parent Advisory Council (RPAC). At these meetings, parents receive training, review needs assessment data, review student achievement data, review and approve the budgets, review and approve the regional plans, provide input on the region’s goals and objectives, set priorities, provide advice on instructional programs and support services for migrant students, and provide suggestions for parent education programs and parent involvement activities. All meetings are public and open to all migrant parents to attend. Each district that receives a sub allocation of migrant funds from Region 2 and allocates funds for regular year services must also operate a district PAC that meets six times per year. Through this process, parents become more aware of the district (migrant and non-migrant funded) resources available to their students and families. 
For more information, visit the Parent Advisory Council webpage.
