PARENTAL NOTIFICATION:

OPTION TO TRANSFER FROM A PERSISTENTLY DANGEROUS SCHOOL

Dear Parents/Guardians:

The California Department of Education has designated the ___________________ School as a "persistently dangerous" school based on state criteria which include expulsion rates for certain types of offenses, gun-free schools violations and violent criminal offenses committed on school property.

Federal law requires that all parents/guardians of students in this school be offered an opportunity to transfer their children to another eligible district school or charter school which has not been so designated. Such transfers would take effect on [date].

The following schools are available to accept transfers:

Other district schools may not appear on this list because either (1) they also have been identified as "persistently dangerous," or (2) the Superintendent has determined that all transfer requests can be accomplished among the above schools.

Information about each available school is enclosed, including information on academic achievement.

If you decide you want to transfer your child, please submit your top [number] choices of schools on the enclosed form by [date] to the [district office or the principal at your child's school]. It cannot be guaranteed that your first choice will be available, but your preferences will be considered.

If you choose to transfer your child, you will be expected to provide or arrange for transportation to and from the child's school. As funds and space permit, transportation may be provided upon request, with priority given to students with the greatest financial need.
