In an effort to ensure better campus safety CVUSD schools will utilize the Raptor Visitor Management System. Upon entering the Briggs campus, visitors will be asked to present a valid state-issued ID, which will be scanned into the system. The Raptor system only scans the visitor's name, date of birth and photo for comparison with a national law enforcement database. Additional visitor data from the driver's license is not gathered nor is the system connected to any other system such as the Department of Motor Vehicles. Therefore any other information on the ID is not scanned by the system and is not accessible to any of the users. Once entry is approved, Raptor will issue a badge that identifies the visitor, the date, and the purpose of his/her visit. All parents, volunteers and visitors must have a Raptor badge to enter campus. The Raptor system will better allow us to track visitors, contractors, and volunteers in our schools and provide us with a safer environment for our students and staff.
Briggs’ Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) Program, is a College Readiness System dedicated to preparing all students for college, career and other postsecondary choices. Students receive a rigorous program of instruction in academic "survival skills" and college level readiness skills. The AVID program teaches students how to study, read for content, take notes, and manage time. Students participate in collaborative study groups or tutorials led by tutors who use skillful questioning to bring students to a higher level of understanding.
The hands-on program boosts classroom engagement and excitement, drives collaboration, and inspires “aha! moments” and deep comprehension. And as students engage in PLTW’s activities in computer science, engineering, and biomedical science, they see a range of paths and possibilities they can look forward to in high school and beyond. Gateway is “activity oriented” to show students how technology is used in engineering to solve everyday problems and is designed to spark an interest in STEM subjects as well as prepare students for further study in high school.
PLTW Launch introduces young minds to the wonders of science, technology, engineering, and math. Through PLTW Launch, our program for kindergarten through fifth grade, students become problem solvers. They use structured approaches like the engineering design process and employ critical thinking. They apply STEM knowledge, skills, and habits of mind, learning that it's okay to take risks and make mistakes. As teachers and students learn and discover together.
Team Machine: General Skillz' Machine tells the hometown story from the farm to the table (and beyond). Our team is from the city of Chino, known for our potent smelling daires. The project starts on one of our local farms where water is purified and pour on the wheat. The wheat is then fed to a hungry cow making deliciously fresh milk. The milk travels upstream to the factory where it is processed and packaged, and shipped off to the store. Once the store opens, hungry customers fill their bags with General Mills goodies! One particular customer is hungry for cereal, they race home, spreading through road blocks that light the street. The car crashes into a napkin block sending the hand into the spoon and feeding the most delicious Cheerios into the mouth. As the cheerios are digested they fall into the toilet "bowl".
