Welcome Back to School- First Day is August 19th

 

Inglewood Unified School District welcomes you back to the 2019-20 school year. Attend the first day of school to be greeted by your Inglewood Unified family with a red carpet, balloons, and pencils. Every student who comes to school on time on the first day of school will be entered to win 2 tickets to a Los Angeles Rams preseason game on Saturday, August 24th. We believe academic success begins with #EveryStudentEveryDay

 

The vision of IUSD Student Support Services Office is to transform, assist, and empower students, families, teachers, and administrators to renew a sense of personal and community agency to thrive. We strive to ensure that students reach high academic achievement and experience wellness and success.

Every student. Every day.
 

Inglewood Unified Launches Attendance Campaign:

Every Student. Every Day.

 

Student attendance is a top priority in Inglewood Unified School District this school year. We believe academic success begins with every student attending school every day. Throughout the year, students will be recognized for Excellent and Improved attendance. Share your attendance successes and celebrations using #EveryStudentEveryDay

 

 

Why Attendance Is Important

 

Research shows that:

  • For every one day missed, it takes a child three or more days to catch up.
  • Children who are chronically absent in preschool, kindergarten, and first grade are much less likely to read at grade level by third grade.
  • Students who cannot read at grade level by the end of third grade are four times more likely than proficient readers to drop out of high school.

It’s the Law (Eng and Spanish)

 

 

What is Excellent Attendance?

 

To maintain Excellent Attendance (96% or more), students must have less than 7 absences the entire school year.

Homeless Education

 

The McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act (McKinney-Vento Act) (42 U.S.C. § 11431-11435) is federal legislation that ensures the educational rights and protections of children and youths experiencing homelessness. It requires all local educational agencies (LEAs) to ensure that homeless students have access to the same free, appropriate public education, including public preschools, as provided to other children and youths. The McKinney-Vento Act defines LEAs as public school districts, direct-funded and locally funded charter schools, and county offices of education. The McKinney-Vento Act also authorizes the funding for the federal Education for Homeless Children and Youths Program.

Home Hospital Services

 

Any student with a temporary, short-term disability that makes attendance in regular school or an alternative education program impossible or inadvisable must receive individual instruction provided by the student's school district (Education Code 48206.3 [b][2]). Students may be recommended for Home Hospital Services by the school principal if they have a medical condition or diagnosis that prevents them from attending school. The student must have a medical letter of recommendation from a licensed physician to support the recommendation for Home Hospital Services.  The school counselor will complete the Home Hospital Referral Form and submit it to the Student Support Services / Child Welfare and Attendance Office.  If approved by the Director of Student Support Services / Child Welfare and Attendance, the student will be assigned to a Home Hospital teacher for a maximum of 5 hours of instruction per week at home, hospital or district facility.  Home Hospital Services will be provided per recommendation of a medical physician.

PBIS

 

What is PBIS?

 

PBIS stands for Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports. It is a school-wide, proactive, team-based framework for creating and sustaining safe and effective schools. The PBIS framework is a process that focuses on improving a school’s ability to teach expectations and support positive behavior for all students. An emphasis is placed on preventing problem behavior, development of pro-social skills, and the use of data-based problem solving for addressing existing behavior concerns. School-wide PBIS increases the capacity of schools to educate all students utilizing research-based school-wide, classroom, and individualized interventions.

 

The four critical elements of PBIS are: outcomes that support social competence and academic achievement, data that supports decision making and evaluates progress toward outcomes, systems that support staff behavior and provide structure for school-wide implementation, and practices that support student behavior by teaching, prompting and reinforcing expectation-following behavior.PBIS implementation includes school-wide procedures and processes intended for: ALL students, ALL staff and in ALL settings. This includes individual classrooms and teachers AND non-classroom setting and related staff.Why PBIS? The goal of

 

PBIS is to create a positive school climate. A positive school climate includes: a feeling of safety, respect, engagement in learning, a shared vision and the involvement of all stakeholders (e.g. staff, students, families) in order to foster student success. PBIS is a way for schools to encourage good behavior
