STUDENTS LEAVING EARLY FOR SUMMER VACATION

A NOTE FROM AUSD - STUDENTS LEAVING EARLY FOR SUMMER VACATION:
Albany Unified School District is dedicated to academic achievement and success for all students. Regular school attendance is an integral part of that success. California law states that absences are excused only if the child is ill, or for bereavement of an immediate family member. All other absences are unexcused. School districts are required to report students as truant when they have 3 or more unexcused absences and/or over 30minute tardies, in a school year. Many parents may be unaware that taking a vacation or going out of town for a "family emergency" during school, is an unexcused absence and thus subject their child (or children) to laws related to truancy. Therefore we have implemented the following policy for students who leave for vacation or family emergencies, during the last 30 days of school. Students who are absent 10 or more consecutive days of school and not returning before the last day of school, will be dis-enrolled to avoid being reported as truant. Students must re-enroll at the District Office upon returning to Albany; however, there is no guarantee that you will receive the same school assignment. Returning students will be treated as new applicants and will be assigned to an elementary school based on space availability. Middle school and high school students will not be guaranteed to receive the courses previously selected for 2016-17. Courses, including elective, will be assigned on a space-available basis. Parents must also verify their Albany address at the time of re-enrollment. Students with inter-district permits, will be in violation of the Inter-district Attendance Agreement and risk losing their permit to attend school in Albany. We are confident that by working together, we can ensure excellent attendance for each and every one of our students. Thank you very much for
your cooperation. If you have any questions, please contact your school principal. Linda Williams, Student ServicesCoordinator—AUSD (lwilliams@ausdk12.org).
