RELEASE OF LIABILITY & ASSUMPTION OF RISK AGREEMENT
In consideration of the acceptance by the City of the application for entry into the classes or activities listed on the Registration Form on the reverse side of this Agreement
and entry to and use of any facilities or equipment as part of these classes or activities, I hereby waive, release and discharge any and all claims for damages for death,
personal injury, or property damage which I may have, or which may hereafter accrue to me as a result of my participation in said classes or activities. This release
Agreement is intended to discharge in advance the City of Santa Clara, its City Council, officers, agents, and employees, the Santa Clara Unified School District, its School
Board, officers, agents and employees from and against any and all liability arising out of or connected with my participation in said classes or activities and entry to and
use of any facilities or equipment, even though that liability may arise out of NEGLIGENCE or CARELESSNESS, on the part of the persons or entities mentioned above.

I HAVE READ THE DESCRIPTION IN THIS CATALOG OF EACH CLASS OR ACTIVITY FOR WHICH I HAVE REGISTERED, AND I AM AWARE THAT THESE CLASSES OR ACTIVITIES
MAY SUBJECT ME TO PHYSICAL RISKS AND DANGERS. NEVERTHELESS, I VOLUNTARILY AGREE TO ASSUME ANY AND ALL RISKS OF INJURY OR DEATH, AND TO
RELEASE, DISCHARGE, AND HOLD HARMLESS ALL OF THE ENTITIES OR PERSONS MENTIONED ABOVE WHO, THROUGH NEGLIGENCE OR CARELESSNESS, MIGHT
OTHERWISE BE LIABLE TO ME, OR MY HEIRS, PERSONAL REPRESENTATIVES, RELATIVES, SPOUSE OR ASSIGNS.

It is understood and agreed that this waiver, release, and assumption of risk is to be binding on my HEIRS, PERSONAL REPRESENTATIVES, RELATIVES, SPOUSE and
ASSIGNS and is intended to be as broad and inclusive as is permitted by the laws of the State of California and that if any portion of this Agreement is held invalid, it is
agreed that the balance shall, notwithstanding, continue in full legal force and effect.

I have carefully READ this Agreement and fully understand its content. All participants registered in classes or activities, including minors 13-17 years of age, must sign

    agreement has been EXPLAINED TO THE MINOR.
    I certify that I have custody or am the legal guardian of said minor and that I and/or my minor child are physically able to participate in recreation
    activities. In the event I or said minor requires medical treatment while under the supervision of City staff and/or agents, I authorize said staff to
    provide and/or authorize medical treatment. I expect City staff to contact me immediately in the event emergency medical treatment is required for said
    minor, but this contact is not necessary to administer emergency aid. I will pay for all medical treatment which I or said minor may require. I hereby
    grant permission to City to include pictures and/or video of me and/or said minor during department activities for brochures or other publicity. I
    understand I will not receive any compensation for use of such pictures or video.

Success stories SANTA CLARA
       from… UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT

A MARRIAGE MADE IN … SCHOOL
It used to be that in a school staff meeting all the literacy teachers sat on one side of the table and
the math and science teachers sat on the other side because they did not have a lot in common.
Now, thanks to a generous grant by National Semiconductor, Santa Clara Unified School District
literacy and science teachers will have a lot in common to teach. Sandwiched among the Bryon
Osborn Nature Center, the SCUSD Science Refurbishment Center and Full Circle Farm, all located on
the Peterson Middle School Campus, National Semiconductor announced the grant to link Literacy
and Science. With 30% of SCUSD students considered English language Learners, the students face
the challenge of learning English as well as mastering the subject content required to be successful
in the future.
The Nature Center, founded thirty years ago by long time
teacher Bryon Osborn, allows students to participate in
science and learn about nature and the interconnectedness of
our environment. The Science Refurbishment Center houses
hands-on science experiments used by all SCUSD schools to
teach science. Full Circle Farm grows fruits and vegetables
and conducts classes for the district’s middle school students.
Through the National grant, teachers will learn science
content and how to bridge science with strong literacy
instruction. With National Semiconductor’s support, coupled
with the passion and enthusiasm SCUSD teachers have for
their students, and these powerful learning lab facilities,
SCUSD will make significant gains for students in Science
and Literacy.
