El Dorado County Youth Commision - Attention All 8th Graders

Attention all  8th Grade students interested in making a difference in their community. The El Dorado County Board of Supervisors and the El Dorado County Office of Education are accepting applications for the 2015-2016 El Dorado County Youth Commission. Applications are available on the El Dorado County Board of Supervisor’s website: (http://www.edcgov.us/BOS/) and the school website.  Applications are due by Friday, September 25, 2015.  Please submit your application to the El Dorado County Office of Education; attention Lisa Boyle; 6767 Green Valley Road, Placerville, CA 95667. The El Dorado County Youth Commission gives students the opportunity to be involved with their community and make a difference. Our structure and processes are similar to the El Dorado County Board of Supervisors. As part of the Youth Commission students have the opportunity to make decisions that will impact their community in a positive way.  Each student is a representative of a specific District in El Dorado County and works in conjunction with that District’s County Supervisor. Throughout the year the members of the Youth Commission work on projects that are important to the youth of the community. Ideas are brought forward from members of the Commission and from youth throughout the county. Some examples of these projects are: support of Sugarloaf Camp by participating in the Sugarloaf Stampede; re-opening of the Placerville Skate Park; fundraising for youth scholarships, leadership conferences, and support for community youth organizations. By joining the Youth Commission students will have the opportunity to develop their leadership skills and gain government experience. Students may also earn community service hours.  For additional information or questions, please contact Lisa Boyle at lboyle@edcoe.org or phone 295-2210.

Every Day Counts

Every Day Counts in a child’s education. Every day a student misses school, he or she gets more than two days behind his peers, because he or she must make up missed lessons and catch up with new lessons at the same time. Regular and punctual attendance will help increase student academic growth. California Education Code Section 46010 states that the only valid reasons for absences from school are:

  1. Illness or injury to the child
  2. Quarantine of the home by a health official
  3. Doctor or dentist’s appointments that can only be scheduled during school hours.
  4. Attendance at funeral services for immediate family.

School districts NO longer receive funding from the State of California for students who are absent from school. This includes ALL absences, even those related to illness, medical/dental appointments. In other words, schools will receive state funding only for students who are in their seats for that day. Please be sure to assist your child in maintaining exemplary attendance to insure the best possible education for him/her, as well as maximum state funding for student attendance. Even if a student attended school part of the day we could still receive income for that student ($35-$40 a day per child). We kindly ask you to be sure your child only stays home when it’s absolutely necessary.

We know you want the very best education for your child, and we do too. Thank you for understanding that Every Day Counts, together we can give your child the very best education.
