PARTICIPATION IN TESTING:   Pursuant to California Education Code Section 60615, parents have the right to opt out of any state assessment.  Student results from any assessment will not be shared beyond the use of school staff directly involved in your child’s education.  Section 852 of Title 5 of the California Code of Regulations further provides that parents or guardians may annually submit a written request to the school to excuse their child from any or all parts of the CAASPP for the school year. Therefore, if you wish to exempt your student from testing, notification in writing to your school’s principal is required.

Lunchtime Working Agreement:  Because of the amount of time students use technology at Design39Campus, we believe that students need a designated media-free time during lunch and recess.  This is in-line with the American Academy of Pediatrics guidelines released in November of 2016.  Students might be initially warned to put away their device; however, if a prior warning had been issued on a previous day to the individual or group, the device will be confiscated at the discretion of the staff member.  We ask parents to pick-up the device at the end of the day to keep them aware of their child’s usage of technology during these unstructured times.  All students have been presented the Lunchtime Working Agreement and are aware of this rule.
