*OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR ENROLLMENT *

HOME LANGUAGE INFORMATION (SECTION C ON ENROLLMENT FORM):  

This section is used to help schools identify students who may have limited fluency in English.  If your answer to any of the first three questions is a language other than “English”, your child’s English language skills will be assessed as required by law.  Based on the results of the assessment, your child may be identified as Limited English Proficient (LEP) and categorized as an English Learner (EL) under California law, and placed in a language acquisition program that will best meet the linguistic and academic needs of your child.

 

INDIVIDUALIZED EDUCATION PLAN (IEP):  If your child has an IEP, please provide a copy of the most current IEP.  

 

MEDICATION:  If your child requires medication to be taken during the school day or has a special medical procedure or protocol, please submit the Request for Medication to Be Taken During School Hours form available in the office.   

 

NEIGHBORHOOD RESIDENCE VERIFICATION:  Mar Vista implements an address verification policy which may include home visits to verify neighborhood residency.  Falsification of any information on forms or documents is cause for immediate withdrawal from our school, and your child will not be eligible to receive any type of permit to continue at Mar Vista.  Your child will be transferred to his or her School of Residence.  

 

CLASS ASSIGNMENTS:  Our goal is to have an optimal learning environment for all children by creating balanced classes.  While we understand that parents may want to have input in their child’s teacher selection, we are confident in the professionalism and qualifications of our faculty to teach all children; therefore, we will not accept parent requests for specific teachers.  Be advised that changes in class assignments may occur for compliance and legitimate reasons.  

 

KINDERGARTEN SCREENING:  When you return your enrollment packet, please sign-up for your child to participate in a 30 minutes Kindergarten screening session.  The screening will help us to get to know your child before school starts as well as assist us in creating balanced classrooms for the success of all children.
