Newport-Mesa Unified School District Logo

School safety is a concern for everyone. Tragedies like what occurred in Texas today remind all of us to continue to be vigilant and prepare as best as possible for the unexpected.

Our district regularly reviews, practices, and enhances our safety procedures.

We have a partnership with the Costa Mesa Police Department and the Newport Beach Police Department to provide School Resource Officers (SRO), which are local law enforcement officers who work closely with all of our schools.

All school sites have safety plans in place which are updated yearly and as-needed throughout the year. Safety plans are regularly reviewed and updated in collaboration with emergency responders and local law enforcement, including SROs.

Schools regularly conduct safety drills with students and staff to prepare for a variety of potential situations. Drills include procedures for lock down, shelter in place, run, hide act, among others such as earthquake and fire procedures.

Schools participate in threat assessment and emergency response trainings with local law enforcement and first responders.

Our district has a Crisis Response Team that is immediately deployed to a school(s) during a crisis to provide immediate and ongoing support and resources. Counselors, social workers, and school psychologists are available to students should they need additional support during difficult times. We also encourage parents to have open discussions with their children to help them process the event and continue to raise awareness about the importance of safety.

While we have plans in place that are regularly practiced, please know that school safety is not something we can do alone. The partnership and support that we have with our local law enforcement and our school community is critical.

We ask for parents’ support in reminding students to please take all drills seriously, follow law enforcement, teacher and site administrator instructions, and if they see something, say something - it is the best deterrent to potentially harmful situations. We want everyone on our campuses, including parents and guardians to be empowered to report unusual or suspicious activity. 

Please know that we do all we can to provide a safe learning environment when students are in our care. We prioritize safety and continually assess our preparedness, improve our practices, and evolve with the changing times.

Newport-Mesa Unified School District

In August 2017, Newport-Mesa Unified School District (NMUSD) began the process of evaluating and piloting new math instructional materials for sixth through eighth grade. Through the seven month, teacher-driven, pilot process, teachers and staff identified Illustrative Mathematics as the comprehensive set of sixth through eighth grade math instructional materials for NMUSD students.

Illustrative Mathematics materials are available for public review on the Open Up Resources Website.  If you would like to review a hard copy of the materials, please contact Tere Russell at (714) 424-5066 or trussell@nmusd.us to make a viewing appointment at the District Office (Sanborn Building) – 2985 Bear Street, Costa Mesa 92626. Material viewing will be available from May 10, 2018- to June 12, 2018. All schools will have the QR code, links and a computer available should you wish to review material at the site. A recommendation for final approval will go forward to the Board of Education on June 12, 2018 to implement these new materials for the 2018/19 school year.
