EDUCATIONAL OPTIONS PROGRAMS

 

INTRODUCTION

 

The Bravo Lake High School campus, located at 450 W. Sequoia, is home to three Educational Options Programs (EOP). They are:

Bravo Lake Continuation High School (BLHS), Woodlake Community Day School (WCDS) Woodlake Unified Independent Study (IS)

 

While the administrative office of WCDS is located at the Bravo Lake campus, its physical location is at 36220 Millwood Drive. It shares this location with the WUSD agricultural farm. 

 

The purpose of EOP is to provide educational placements to students who, for various reasons and unique circumstances, are in need of and request an educational placement outside of the traditional school setting. A student and his/her parents, guardians,  administrators, probation officers and others may advocate for a student’s placement in EOP if they have determined that the student might be better suited for a different approach to receiving his/her education outside of the regular classroom settings provided by Woodlake Public Schools. 

 

The decision to place a student in an EOP setting is generally determined through the district’s Coordination Of Services Team (COST) referral process.  COST, which includes parent(s)/guardian(s) and student, thoroughly discusses a student’s issues and concerns and determines the best possible educational placement to support a student’s academic success.  Once a student is placed, his/her progress is carefully monitored and support services are provided as needed.

 

EOP staff provide a safe, orderly and friendly atmosphere where a student can receive his/her education.

 

As a parent/guardian, it is your responsibility to be sure that your son/daughter is in school.  All EOP programs require that a student be present to earn credits by completing assigned work. When a student is not present and does not complete work, units are not earned.   Encourage your son/daughter to attend school every day. Contact information for each program is provided in this handbook. You are welcome to visit or call our offices if you have any questions or concerns regarding your son’s or daughter’s educational progress.

EDUCATIONAL OPTIONS PROGRAMS

General Information

 

After reading the EOP General Information section, if you have any questions or need additional information, please contact the EOP office located on the BLHS campus at 564-8716.


 

ATTENDANCE – ACADEMIC CREDIT

Credit earned and attendance are closely related. Good attendance is necessary in order to accumulate credit which counts towards graduation from EOP or any other school. Units of credit will be determined by work completed while in attendance at school. Absence from school directly affects academic success.  Each day’s absence from class makes it more difficult for a student to perform up to his/her potential. We ask your cooperation in ensuring your student regularly attends school. Please contact us if you need assistance with this effort.  

 

 

3

ABSENCES

When a student is absent, a parent(s)/guardian(s) must call the school office that day and state the reason for absence.  Please call 564-8716 to explain the absence or unexpected tardiness of your child.  If it is not possible to call the office, written excuses from the parents are required.  Written excuses must give the date and the reason for the absence.

 

**UNEXCUSED ABSENCES MUST BE CLEARED WITHIN 1 WEEK FOLLOWING AN ABSENCE**

 

In the event that a student is found to be absent without just cause for any three days (consecutively or non-consecutively) legal proceedings will be initiated against the parents of that student (see SARB).

Under California Law, parents/guardians are required to comply with state compulsory attendance laws.  The parent/guardian who fails to comply with these laws may be guilty of an infraction.  A criminal complaint may be filed against that person, and that person may be prosecuted.

 

The only state approved excused absences from school are: (Reference: Ed. Code, Section 46100)

(1)        an illness or an injury to the child with doctor note verification.                    

(2)        a quarantine of the home by county or city health official     

(3)        a medical, dental or optometric appointment that can only be scheduled during school

hours

(4)        attendance at funeral services for a member of the immediate family


 

SCHOOL ATTENDANCE REVIEW BOARD (SARB)

In the event that a student is found to be absent without just cause for any three days (consecutively or non-consecutively), a SARB (School Attendance Review Board) letter will be sent to parents.  If the student is absent a fourth time without just cause, a second letter will be sent to the parents.  If the student is absent a fifth time without just cause, a third letter will be sent to the parents and the child will be considered an habitual truant.  At that time, a final letter will be sent to the parents notifying them of the time and place to appear at a SARB Hearing.  At the hearing, members of the SARB panel decide what action is to be taken. It is the parent who is held accountable at SARB hearings.  If the SARB panel decides that the matter should be filed with the Tulare County District Attorney’s Office, it is the parent who must appear in court and not the child.

If a child is absent for medical reasons for ten (10) days or more during the course of the year (consecutively or non-consecutively) a doctor’s excuse will be required.  In the event that a doctor’s excuse is not provided by the parents after ten days of absence, SARB proceedings will begin.

 

EMERGENCY PROCEDURE FORMS

EOP parent(s)/guardian(s) must complete an emergency form for each student enrolled in school. These forms are used by the office in the event of an emergency. Please notify our office if the emergency information changes during the school year.

 

Emergency information requested includes the following:

1. Most reliable phone number (text receiving if applicable)

2. Parent(s)’/Guardian(s)’ work phone number and address

3. Doctor’s name and address

4. Name, address and phone number of friend or relative you have designated to contact in

    case of emergency.

GRADES - CREDITS

Grades in EOP are awarded on an A-D system.  A grade of “F” will not be awarded in EOP.  A student receiving a failing grade will either repeat the course work or not receive a grade. During the 2015-16 school year, EOP, like Woodlake High School (WHS), will be on a Semester grading system, each semester consisting of approximately 18 weeks.  Students will receive grades two times per year at the end of each semester. Progress reports are given at the end of each 6 weeks. Reports cards are sent home at the end of each semester but parents may request a progress report at any time during the school year.  EOP operates under a variable credit system.  All credit will be awarded in increments of 0.5 units.  Students have the opportunity to earn as many credits per trimester as possible and are encouraged to do so.  (See GRADUATION PROFILE – INDIVIDUAL LEARNING PLAN)


 

INTRA-SCHOOL TRANSFERS

Typically, EOP students will have two opportunities (at the end of each semester) during the course of the year to petition to return to Woodlake High School. Students wishing to return to Woodlake High School must petition to request a meeting to discuss the required criteria for return to the high school. The petitioning student, parent(s)/guardian(s), EOP administration, and Woodlake High School administration may all participate. EOP students who wish to transfer to Woodlake High School must meet the following conditions in order to qualify to return:

 

1. Earn a minimum of *25 units                                 

2. Have 94% positive attendance      

3. Have no major discipline problems

4. Have EOP staff recommendation to return

 

*Note: Students returning to WHS who wish to participate in sports must earn a minimum of 25 units

 

PARENT-TEACHER CONFERENCES

Parent-Teacher Conferences are scheduled on an individual basis as needed and requested.  If desired, parent(s)/guardian(s) are encouraged to contact the EOP administrative office on the Bravo Lake campus to arrange a conference regarding questions or concerns related to his/her son or daughter.

 

DISTRICT PROFICIENCIES - CAHSEE

To graduate from the Woodlake Union High School District, EOP students must pass the district proficiency tests in the areas of Reading, Writing and Mathematics (when applicable). In addition, they must pass the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to earn a high school diploma in the state of California. A graduating senior may opt for a certificate of completion without passing the CAHSEE.

 

YOUTH SERVICE LEARNING – COMMUNITY SERVICE PROJECTS

The Woodlake Unified School District requires 85 hours (5 credits) of volunteer work as part of its graduation requirements.  Hours are not done for pay, for family, or on school time. Youth Service Learning(YSL) projects must be approved before starting a project(s). The number of YSL hours required for a student who transfers from another district will be prorated. A student may do all of his/her YSL hours in one year, but it is highly recommended that the 85 hours be spread over the four years of high school. A student may begin YSL projects after 8th grade graduation. YSL projects may be done as an individual, in partnership with another student or with a group of students. IT IS THE STUDENT’S RESPONSIBILITY TO COMPLETE THE YSL GRADUATION REQUIREMENT.

 

5

SENIOR PORTFOLIO GRADUATION REQUIREMENT

To graduate from the Woodlake Union High School District, EOP seniors must submit a completed portfolio during a scheduled Senior Exit Interview. To meet this requirement, all EOP students are assigned a Portfolio Advisor and students are required to work on their portfolios at least once a month throughout the course of a school year. All EOP students are responsible for the completion of their portfolio.

 

WORK PERMITS - WORK EXPERIENCE

All students under 18 years of age must have work permits in order to be employed at a regular job.  Work permits will be issued by the EOP administrative office.  A student must be at least 14 years old, a Social Security number, and present a note of employment from the employer before he/she can be issued a permit.

 

A student may earn work experience credit if he or she has a regular, verified job approved by the school.  One credit will be awarded for each twenty hours of work.  Work experience credits, however, will not exceed five credits per semester.  Work experience credit is contingent upon productive school work and good attendance.

All EOP students must comply with the Woodlake Educational Options Program dress code guidelines listed below that have been ratified the WUSD Board of Trustees:

If you believe a state or federal law has been violated, you may file a written complaint describing the failure with the district’s compliance officer, Superintendent Drew Sorensen, at 300 West Whitney Avenue, Woodlake, CA. 93286, 559/564-8081.

 

After the local investigation, you may appeal to the California Department of Education. Some complaints may involve civil law remedies, direct State intervention or the withholding of funds from the district if the district fails to comply with the law.

 

 

CANINE DETECTION

 

The Woodlake Unified School District may utilize a canine detection team to help keep all campuses free of illegal substances and weapons.  Random inspections of backpacks, cars, classrooms, lockers and other school facilities may occur throughout the year. Possession of any illegal substances or weapon will result in consequences as defined by the California Education Code and the Woodlake Unified School District Discipline Code.
