Homicidal Threats Reporting Requirement Memorandum To: Parents and Guardians of Students at Vaughn Next Century Learning Center From: Fidel Ramirez, CEO Subject: California Law Regarding Reporting of Homicidal Threats to Law Enforcement The purpose of this memorandum is to inform parents and legal guardians of all students at Vaughn Next Century Learning Center regarding the required reporting of homicidal threats to law enforcement. Effective on January 1, 2023 school employees must immediately report homicidal threats to law enforcement per Senate Bill 906. This law requires a school official who is alerted to or observes any threat or perceived threat related to grades 6-12, to immediately report it to law enforcement. Law enforcement, with the support of the LEA, must immediately investigate the threat. "Threat or perceived threat" means any writing or action of a pupil that creates a reasonable suspicion that the pupil is preparing to commit a homicidal act related to school or a school activity. This may include possession, use, or depictions of firearms, ammunition, shootings, or targets in association with infliction of physical harm, destruction, or death in a social media post, journal, class note, or other media associated with the pupil. It may also include a warning by a parent, pupil, or other individual. The threat does NOT need to be firearm-specific, it must only be related to a homicidal act/thought. Please speak with your child about the potential consequences of making threats to the school, other students, or school employees. Sincerely, Fidel Ramirez Chief Executive Officer Vaughn Next Century Learning Center
Firearm Safety Memorandum To: Parents and Guardians of Students at Vaughn Next Century Learning Center From: Fidel Ramirez, CEO Subject: California Law Regarding Safe Storage of Firearms The purpose of this memorandum is to inform and to remind parents and legal guardians of all students at Vaughn Next Century Learning Center of their responsibilities for keeping firearms out of the hands of children as required by California law. There have been many news reports of children bringing firearms to school. In many instances, the child obtained the firearm(s) from his or her home. These incidents can be easily prevented by storing firearms in a safe and secure manner, including keeping them locked up when not in use and storing them separately from ammunition. To help everyone understand their legal responsibilities, this memorandum spells out California law regarding the storage of firearms. Please take some time to review this memorandum and evaluate your own personal practices to assure that you and your family are in compliance with California law. ● With very limited exceptions, California makes a person criminally liable for keeping any firearm, loaded or unloaded, within any premises that are under their custody and control where that person knows or reasonably should know that a child is likely to gain access to the firearm without the permission of the child’s parent or legal guardian, and the child obtains access to the firearm and thereby (1) causes death or injury to the child or any other person; (2) carries the firearm off the premises or to a public place, including to any preschool or school grades kindergarten through twelfth grade, or to any school-sponsored event, activity, or performance; or (3) unlawfully brandishes the firearm to others.  ○ Note: The criminal penalty may be significantly greater if someone dies or suffers great bodily injury as a result of the child gaining access to the firearm. ● With very limited exceptions, California also makes it a crime for a person to negligently store or leave any firearm, loaded or unloaded, on their premises in a location where the person knows or reasonably should know that a child is likely to gain access to it without the permission of the child’s parent or legal guardian, unless reasonable action is taken to secure the firearm against access by the child, even where a minor never actually accesses the firearm.  ● In addition to potential fines and terms of imprisonment, as of January 1, 2020, a gun owner found criminally liable under these California laws faces prohibitions from possessing, controlling, owning, receiving, or purchasing a firearm for 10 years .  ● Finally, a parent or guardian may also be civilly liable for damages resulting from the discharge of a firearm by that person’s child or ward.  Note: Your county or city may have additional restrictions regarding the safe storage of firearms. Thank you for helping to keep our children and schools safe. Remember that the easiest and safest way to comply with the law is to keep firearms in a locked container or secured with a locking device that renders the firearm inoperable. Sincerely, Fidel Ramirez Chief Executive Officer Vaughn Next Century Learning Center
