School and District Budgets
School Budget is just a quick way to say what it costs to educate students. The DJUSD budget is a reflection of the funding that comes into the District and how we choose to spend those dollars. In this presentation we will discuss our funding sources and our spending decisions that reflect the District's values and priorities. 

Special Education
Special Education in Davis: what sets us apart from other districts.  Special Education staff will discuss Davis' inclusive special education model and how it best serves students with special needs. 

Suicide Prevention in DJUSD
It can be difficult to talk about mental health; it can be particularly challenging to talk about suicide. In this presentation, parents/guardians will learn which warning signs to look for as well as how to find resources and support. In addition, participants will learn about the prevention, intervention, and postvention efforts within DJUSD.  

Vaping - What you need to know
