Security Department Information

  • In 1997, the Sunnyside Unified School District's K-12 Prevention Program won the prestigious "Meyer & Libby Marmis Humanitarian Award", presented by the Tucson Jewish Relations Council for "significant and lasting contributions in the fields of human welfare and social reform on behalf of the people of Arizona."
  • The Prevention Program involves the District's commitment to have full-time counselors, full-time nurses, parent involvement assistants, psychologists, and campus security monitors at every campus. The Prevention Program also involves coordination and liaison with the Tucson Police Department, the Pima County Sheriffs Department, the Pima County Juvenile Court, and the Pima County Attorney's Office.
  • Sunnyside's Prevention Program provides staff development and student trainings in violence prevention, gang awareness, resiliency factors, drug-free lifestyles, and making healthy/position choices, aligned with the District's K-12 Comprehensive Health Curriculum. The program works to provide resources and opportunities to explore and create options for "at-promise" students during and after school.
  • The Prevention Program uses research-based information to develop and implement programs and procedures in prevention/intervention services that work to make the Sunnyside Community a safer, healthier place to live.
