Cautionary Notice: AB 97 (Ch. 47, Statutes of 2013) repealed Education Code 42605, which provided temporary flexibility for specified "Tier 3" categorical programs, and instead redirects the funding for those categorical programs into the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) (Education Code 42238.01-42251). The supplemental and concentration grant portions of the LCFF may be used for any schoolwide or districtwide educational purpose in accordance with state regulations to be adopted by January 31, 2014, with a goal of increasing or improving services for English learners, foster youth, and students eligible for free and reduced-price meals. Certain requirements related to Tier 3 categorical program(s) in the following policy or regulation are no longer applicable.

The Board of Education recognizes that personal, social, health, and economic circumstances of children and families sometimes place students at risk of school failure. The Board believes, however, that each student can succeed in meeting district academic standards with appropriate educational programs and support services.
