arrow Previous bar Next arrow

Students shall qualify as district residents if placed within the district in a regularly established licensed children's institution, a licensed foster home, or a family home pursuant to a commitment or placement under Welfare and Institutions Code 200-987. The agency placing a student in such a home or institution shall provide evidence to the school that the placement or commitment is pursuant to law.

Students shall qualify as district residents if they reside in the home of a care-giving adult within district boundaries.

Upon enrollment, the care-giving adult shall execute, under penalty of perjury, the affidavit specified in Family Code 6552. Affidavits are valid for one year. Evidence that the caregiver lives at the address given on the affidavit shall be required at the time of enrollment as it is required of all other student registrations. If the student stops living with the caregiver, Family Code 6550 requires the caregiver to so notify the school.

When their whereabouts is known, parents/guardians of students living with a caregiver or in foster care shall receive all parental notifications required by law. They shall be contacted for all major educational decisions concerning enrollment, discipline and final grades. Unless legal guardianship has been established by a court order, the parent/guardian still exercises authority with regard to attendance and grades.

Caregivers and foster parents who have filed the affidavit specified in Family Code 6552 may authorize school-related medical care.

Care givers and foster parents shall receive a copy of all school notices.

Under certain circumstances, a "surrogate parent" may be appointed to represent a special education student regarding the provision of special education services. A surrogate parent is not a parent or a legal guardian for purposes of determining students who qualify as district residents.
