NOTICE TO PARENTS OF 18 YEAR OLD STUDENTS

The California State Law (Education Code 46012) has created questions regarding an 18 year old student assuming full responsibility for his/her education.

Delano Joint Union High School District feels an obligation to communicate with parents/guardians regarding the educational progress and progress is now the responsibility of an 18 year old. The district staff feels that both parents/guardians and students should be aware of the inherent responsibilities of the 18 year old.

Your child will be notified of these responsibilities and of the repercussions of their irresponsibility. Their responsibilities will include:

1. A 90 percent positive attendance rate

2. Attendance to class and school on time

3. Completion of all required classroom assignments

4. Compliance with the discipline handbook

5. Completion of 25 semester units, and compliance with graduation requirements

If an 18 year old does not meet these responsibilities he/she will be excluded from the high school. A transfer to Delano Adult School will be recommended. Should you have any questions regarding this notification, contact the school district at 725-4000.
