Dear FCSD West Families,
From November 20 - December 4, families will be able to request a change of placement for their student(s) for the 2nd semester, which starts on January 14, 2021. The process will be the same as we used for change of placement from Quarter 1 to Quarter 2.
You do not need to do anything if you are happy with your child’s current instructional placement.
If you want to CHANGE your child's placement, please fill out THIS FORM for each child you wish to move. All requests must be submitted by Friday, December 4th at 5:00pm. You will be notified by your child’s school as to whether or not your request can be fulfilled. This is a request, not a guarantee. We will fulfill as many requests as possible. Please know that this will likely be the last opportunity to request a change of placement for this school year. We do not intend to do this again, so families who are thinking about a change of placement should request that change now. If you have specific questions regarding your child’s placement, please contact your child’s school.
State law requires that parents notify the school office to report tardiness or absence from school. An email address has been established for attendance purposes. Parents may use the following address to report student absences: firstname.lastname@example.org. The email notification will serve as a parent note. This email address is an option we are providing for your convenience. Parents may still choose to call in to report student absences on the day of the absence. However, if you choose to call in, we still need to receive written notification of a child's absence within 3 days of the child's return to school in order for the absence to be considered excused. When appropriate, please request a doctor/dentist/court/funeral document to be submitted to the school. A total of 42 hours of parent excused notes may be used for excused absences. After 42 hours, it needs to be one of the above mentioned documented excuses or it will be considered unexcused. Excessive unexcused absences may result in letters from the district, meetings with building administrator (s) or potential involvement with the district truancy officer.
