2015-2016 Student Attendance Calendar Revised

March 2, 2016
Dear Parents/Guardians,

As you may be aware, the Tehachapi Unified School District 2015-16 Student Attendance Calendar identified days in May to be used as make-up days in the event of school closures for snow. A new calendar is needed to reflect the days schools were closed this school year due to snow and inclement weather.
On Tuesday, February 23, 2016, the Board of Trustees of the Tehachapi Unified School District approved a revised 2015-16 Student Attendance Calendar. The new calendar, on the back of this notice, shows the actual days that district schools were closed, removes the snow make-up days in May, and adds one additional day to the end of the school year. Due to these changes, students will be attending school on:

• Friday, May 13, 2016
• Monday, May 16, 2016
• Friday, May 27, 2016
• Friday, June 3, 2016 (Last day of school and a minimum day)

Promotion and Graduation dates for Tehachapi High, Monroe High, and Jacobsen Middle schools remain unchanged. This calendar will also be posted to our district website. Please contact your child’s school office if you have any questions or need additional information.

Thank you,
Susan Andreas-Bervel

Morgan Hill Case

Dear Parents:

The District recently received an email from State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson with information about pending lawsuits (known as the “Morgan Hill” cases). We believe similar emails were sent to every school district and SELPA in the state of California. Mr. Torlakson requested that we post a link on the district’s website for parents’ use in filing an objection to disclosure of information by the California Department of Education (CDE).

The email indicates various student records will be produced by CDE as part of those lawsuits. The court has ordered CDE to release the records under a protective order concerning their use. We understand these records contain personally identifiable information on a vast number of public education students. The District is not releasing these records but CDE will be releasing them. While the lawsuit is about compliance with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act and Section 504 Programs, there is no indication that the information to be released by CDE pertains only to students engaged in one or more of those programs. We have no information about whether or not these records pertain to your student.

If you are interested in obtaining more information, the link is:


Again, the District is not releasing these records; we are providing this notice to you so you can determine whether or not to object to the release of records by CDE.
