School-Based Student Motivation And Maintenance Program   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The Board of Education desires to assist district schools in providing high-quality instructional programs and auxiliary services that will reduce student absenteeism, tardiness and dropout rates, and lead to the satisfactory completion of a high school diploma by all students.

(cf. 0420.1 - School-Based Program Coordination)

(cf. 5113.1 - Truancy)

(cf. 5147 - Dropout Prevention)

(cf. 5149 - At-Risk Students)

(cf. 6146.1 - High School Graduation Requirements)

The Superintendent or designee shall give all district principals information about the School-Based Pupil Motivation and Maintenance Program and ensure that principals provide that information to teachers, other school personnel, parents/guardians and, in secondary schools, students. (Education Code 54725)

Before a school begins to develop a school plan for the program, a school site council shall be established to consider whether or not it wishes the school to participate in the program. All interested parties, including but not limited to the principal, teachers, other school personnel, parents/guardians, and, in secondary schools, students, shall have the opportunity to meet in public to establish this site council. (Education Code 54725)

(cf. 0420 - School Plans/Site Councils)

The Superintendent or designee shall use program funding to hire and support an outreach consultant at each participating school. The outreach consultant shall help identify the school's at-risk students, coordinate the resources of the school and community to meet the needs of these students, and fulfill other responsibilities identified by the Superintendent or designee and/or the school site council.

The plan and any revisions shall be approved by the Board prior to implementation and retained at the school site. (Education Code 54722)
