About the Presenter
Dr. Chamberlin has twelve years counseling experience on school sites including program management, administration, outreach, education, and intervention. She spent nine years in private practice providing psychotherapy to children, adolescents and their families.

Dr. Chamberlin is currently the Mental Health Coordinator with the Conejo Valley Unified School District where she is developing programs for students across the developmental continuum. It is Dr. Chamberlin’s vision to meet the social-emotional needs of all students through prevention and intervention and by increasing the availability of school-based mental health services.
Inclusion, engagement, and fun are at the center of Thousand Oaks High School, Newbury Park High School and Westlake High School’s second year of Unified Sports Leagues. At all three comprehensive high schools, the Unified Teams are comprised of approximately half Athletes (students with intellectual disabilities), and half Unified Partners (students without intellectual disabilities). Each school has developed a unique model of stewardship for their Unified Sports Leagues.
The CVUSD community is invited to cheer on students, and support this program, by attending the upcoming Unified Basketball Tournament on Friday, February 7th at Newbury Park High School. More details here

Earned Income Tax Credit Information Act Communication
You may also be eligible to receive the California Earned Income Tax Credit (California EITC) starting with the calendar year 2015 tax year. The California EITC is a refundable state income tax credit for low-income working individuals and families. The California EITC is treated in the same manner as the Federal EITC and generally will not be used to determine eligibility for welfare benefits under California law. To claim the California EITC, even if you do not owe California taxes, you must file a California income tax return and complete and attach the California EITC Form (FTB 3514). For information on the availability of the credit eligibility requirements and how to obtain the necessary California forms and get help filing, contact the Franchise Tax Board at 1-800-852-5711 or through its website at www.ftb.ca.gov.
The California Revenue and Taxation Code (RTC) Section 19853(b) requires local educational agencies (LEA) that operate the National School Lunch Program to annually notify households about the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) Information Act.
