Please look for California Healthy Kids Survey participation permission slips being sent home this week with your student. Students in 5th and 6th grade must have a signed permission slip from their parent/guardian before they can participate in the survey. Students in 7th and 8th grade need a parent signature only to "opt out" should their parent/guardian decide the student is not to participate in the survey.

 

The California Healthy Kids Survey (CHKS) is the largest statewide survey of resiliency, protective factors, risk behaviors, and school climate in the nation. Across California, the CHKS has led to a better understanding of the relationship between students’ health behaviors and academic performance, and is frequently cited by state policymakers and the media as a critical component of school improvement efforts to help guide the development of more effective health, prevention, and youth development programs. Administering the CHKS in MLUSD:

  • Allows our schools and district to monitor whether we are providing the critical developmental supports and opportunities that promote healthy growth and learning.
  • Assesses health risks, specifically relating to alcohol, tobacco, and other drug (ATOD) use; school violence; physical health; resilience and youth development; and school climate.

     Please note: The survey is in full compliance with all state (California) and federal regulations. Special attention has been paid to ensuring the confidentiality and privacy of the data, and that all student and parent rights are met.

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.
