Learn how screen time is impacting your teen! Come to a free screening of the film Screenagers. (See links for trailer and additional information.)

DATE: Thursday, October 4

TIME: 6:00-7:30pm

WHERE: RBV PAC

Are you watching kids scroll through life, with their rapid-fire thumbs and a six-second attention span? Physician and filmmaker Delaney Ruston saw that with her own kids and learned that the average kid spends 6.5 hours a day looking at screens. She wondered about the impact of all this time and about the friction occurring in homes and schools around negotiating screen time—friction she knew all too well. 

In SCREENAGERS, as with her award-winning documentaries on mental health, Delaney takes a deeply personal approach as she probes into the vulnerable corners of family life, including her own, to explore struggles over social media, video games, academics and internet addiction. Through poignant, and unexpectedly funny stories, along with surprising insights from authors, psychologists, and brain scientists, SCREENAGERS reveals how tech time impacts kids’ development and offers solutions on how adults can empower kids to best navigate the digital world and find balance.

RBV was recently recognized as a 2017-2018 Educational Results Partnership (ERP) Honor Roll School for our high achievement and student success! The Honor Roll program, sponsored by the Campaign for Business and Education Excellence (CBEE), is part of a national effort to identify higher-performing schools and districts that are improving student outcomes. RBV is one of 1,798 public schools in California to be recognized.

The 2017-2018 ERP Honor Roll utilizes public school student achievement data to identify successful schools and districts.

RBV stands above others in the state because of our demonstrated ability to get students to grade level achievement and beyond.

Schools that receive the ERP Honor Roll distinction have demonstrated consistent high levels of student academic achievement, improvement in achievement levels over time, and a reduction in achievement gaps among student populations.

Here a few important facts about the ERP Honor Roll:

  • It’s the only award given in collaboration with business leaders
  • It includes graduation and dropout rate data
  • It establishes a higher bar of performance than any other award
  • It is conducted by Educational Results Partnership, a nonprofit organization that maintains the nation’s largest database on student achievement

We did not apply for this award. Our results led them to us!

We are thankful for the hard work of our students and teachers here at RBV. This recognition is a testament to the sustained focus on academic results and commitment to student success that our school and parent community have shown over the years.
