Community Resources

  • Please note: In order to provide the highest level of support to the MetroED community, it is imperative that we educate others about important issues that directly affect our work and the students we serve. On this page you will find resources from outside agencies and organizations that model these practices. Sharing them enables us to truly meet our mission to “prepare high school and adult students for future success in college and careers.”

Opioid overdose awareness

  • The Opioid epidemic is a serious national crisis affecting public health and social and economic welfare. *In 2019, the misuse and addiction to opioids, including prescription pain relievers and heroin and synthetic opioids such as fentanyl, claimed the lives of almost 50,000 people. 

    The following informs educators and parents about opioid use, and signs of overdose and provides information about available effective treatment that can save lives.​ For more information click here.

Educator Toolkit: Understanding and Affirming our K-12 Asian American and Pacific Islander Students

  • The Santa Clara County Office of Education (SCCOE) takes great pride in celebrating the diversity of our students and families. Our county’s diverse population includes more than thirty percent of K-12 students who identify as Asian. The SCCOE is proud to partner with the Santa Clara County Office of Education Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Educators Network to develop this Educator Toolkit: Understanding and Affirming our K-12 Asian American and Pacific Islander Students. This digital resource is intended to develop broader and deeper knowledge of the local AAPI history and community, and support teachers and administrators in the education and identity development of AAPI students in Santa Clara County. The content of this toolkit is aligned with the History-Social Science Framework for California Public Schools, Kindergarten Through Grade Twelve. See the toolkit linked here.
