For the 2021/22 school year, YCSC is required to communicate the educational options for families and their pupils in the 2021–22 school year related to Independent Study. With the recent passage of AB 130, all schools and school districts must now notify parents and guardians of their options to enroll their pupil in in-person instruction or Independent Study during the 2021–22 school year (EC Section 51747).

AB 104 Information

AB 104 was signed into law by the Governor on June 21, 2021, and requires the adoption of a policy regarding student retention for students who in the 2020-21 academic year received deficient grades (to include a mandatory consultation meeting with parents/guardians). For students enrolled in high school in 2020-21, it allows parents to request grade changes for the 2020-21 school year to Pass or No Pass on their transcript and requires website posting and notice about the right to request a grade change.
