The Danville/Sycamore Valley Rotary is working to rebuild the Quad area at Del Amigo High School.  “Del Amigo High School is the continuation High School for the San Ramon Valley Unified School District.  Continuation education is a high school diploma program for student 16-18 years of age, whose needs are not met by the comprehensive high school setting.  In an alternative setting that offers more flexibility, students benefit from smaller classes, shorter schedules, student-centered curriculum, increased counseling services, and individualized options for learning credits. Young people who have not functioned well in a large traditional setting often find themselves succeeding, earning credits, and developing feelings of self-worth, personal responsibility and community identity. These students can choose to graduate from Del Amigo, return to their residence school, transition to adult education diploma program, or study and pass the California High School Proficiency Exam (CHESPE) or the General Education Development Test (GED).”  The Danville/Sycamore Valley Rotary recognizes the need for a better environment for these students.  We are working to rebuild the Quad area into a more functional and useful area in the school.  We need community support to complete this project especially with architectural walkway concrete and landscaping services.  This campus beautification and improvement project will also benefit students in two other programs which call Del Amigo home – the Transition Classes for young adults with developmental disabilities and the county’s Marchus Center satellite program for students who need a small, structured self-contained classroom.  We are soliciting a dedicated partner or partners to assist us in this project.  Often forgotten these students in our community can and do go on to return to the community in great ways.  Your help is greatly appreciated.   Contact Danville/Sycamore Valley Rotary or Jim Coleman (925) 997-9528 to offer assistance.
