Cautionary Notice: As added and amended by SBX3 4 (Ch. 12, Third Extraordinary Session, Statutes of 2009), ABX4 2 (Ch. 2, Fourth Extraordinary Session, Statutes of 2009), and SB 70 (Ch. 7, Statutes of 2011), Education Code 42605 grants districts flexibility in "Tier 3" categorical programs. The Atascadero USD has accepted this flexibility and thus is deemed in compliance with the statutory or regulatory program and funding requirements for these programs for the 2008-09 through 2014-15 fiscal years. As a result, the district may temporarily suspend certain provisions of the following policy or regulation that reflect these requirements. For further information, please contact the Superintendent or designee.

The Board of Trustees recognizes that personal, social, health and economic conditions of children and families sometimes place students at greater risk of school failure. The Board believes, however, that each student can succeed in meeting District academic standards with an appropriate educational program and support services.

(cf. 6011 - Academic Standards)

(cf. 6146.1 - High School Graduation Requirements/Standards of Proficiency)

(cf. 6146.5 - Elementary School Promotion/Standards of Proficiency)

The Superintendent or designee shall develop strategies to address the needs of District students at risk. District assessments and ongoing classroom evaluations shall be used to identify students performing below grade level or at risk of failing to meet District standards. The primary emphasis shall be on prevention and early intervention. The Superintendent or designee also shall ensure that school staff is prepared to implement intervention strategies as needed or to make appropriate referrals.
