About Us

Paradise Unified School District was awarded the SHINE (Safe and Healthy in Northern) California Grant in collaboration with a community-wide partnership including Paradise Police Department, Butte County Sheriff's Office, Butte County Probation Department, Butte County Behavioral Health, Youth 4 Change; Project Vision, a community collation; youth and parent groups such as Magalia Youth Council; Feather River Hospital; and faith-based organizations; and concerned citizens. The maximum yearly award for SS/HS grantees is based on student enrollment. Paradise Unified School District was awarded $1,415,771 per year for 4 years.

The SS/HS Initiative draws on the best practices of education, justice, social services, and mental health systems to provide integrated and comprehensive resources for prevention programs and prosocial services for youth. An integrated, comprehensive, communitywide, and community-specific plan addresses the problems of school violence and alcohol and other drug abuse. This plan is focused on five elements:

 

·      Element 1: Safe school environments and violence prevention activities.

·      Element 2: Alcohol and other drug prevention activities.

·      Element 3: Student behavioral, social, and emotional supports.

·      Element 4: Mental health services.

·      Element 5: Early childhood social and emotional learning programs.

 

The comprehensive plans are designed to provide students, schools, and families with a network of effective services, supports, and activities that help students develop the skills and emotional resilience necessary to promote positive mental health, engage in prosocial behavior, and prevent violent behavior and drug use; create schools and communities that are a safe, disciplined, and drug-free environment; and engage parents, community organizations, and social services agencies to help develop an infrastructure that will institutionalize and sustain successful grant components after federal funding has ended.

California Healthy Families: Affordable Health Care for Children

The Healthy Families Program is low cost insurance that provides health, dental and vision coverage to children who do not have insurance today and do not qualify for no-cost Medi-Cal.

How will Healthy Families provide health care for my children?

When you enroll your children in Healthy Families, you choose the health, dental, and vision insurance plans. The plans provide the health, dental, and vision coverage for your children. This insurance pays most of your children's costs for visits to doctors, dentists, eye doctors, and specialists. The insurance plans also contract with clinics, laboratories, pharmacies, and hospitals for your children's health care.
