Policies are broad guidelines established for effectively operating a school system. 

Policies are:

  • Statements of principle intended to promote progress toward the school district’s goals


Concisely stated, a policy is a general statement the school board makes to indicate a desired condition, direction, or belief.


A California Department of Education (CDE) audit was conducted in 2015 and 2018 and the current policy was found to be compliant in all areas.


Please find attached a copy of the current Administrative Regulation and Board Policy.  Please review and respond with any input you may have.  We would like to have all submissions back by March 16, 2020.  During the March 26, 2020 meeting there will be Food and Nutrition updates as well as a review of submittals. Please let us know if you are able to attend, no later than March 19, 2020.  If you are not able to attend, your input is still appreciated by responding to this email with any input you may have regarding the policy.


Thank you,

Earned Income Tax Credit Information Act Communication

Based on your annual earnings, you may be eligible to receive the Earned Income Tax Credit from the Federal Government (Federal EITC). The Federal EITC is a refundable federal income tax credit for low-income working individuals and families. The Federal EITC has no effect on certain welfare benefits. In most cases, Federal EITC payments will not be used to determine eligibility for Medicaid, Supplemental Security Income, food stamps, low-income housing, or most Temporary Assistance For Needy Families payments. Even if you do not owe federal taxes, you must file a federal tax return to receive the Federal EITC. Be sure to fill out the Federal EITC form in the Federal Income Tax Return Booklet. For information regarding your eligibility to receive the Federal EITC, including information on how to obtain the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Notice 797 or any other necessary forms and instructions, contact the IRS by calling 1-800-829-3676 or through its website at

      You may also be eligible to receive the California Earned Income Tax Credit (California EITC) starting with the calendar year 2015 tax year. The California EITC is a refundable state income tax credit for low-income working individuals and families. The California EITC is treated in the same manner as the Federal EITC and generally will not be used to determine eligibility for welfare benefits under California law. To claim the California EITC, even if you do not owe California taxes, you must file a California income tax return and complete and attach the California EITC Form (FTB 3514). For information on the availability of the credit eligibility requirements and how to obtain the necessary California forms and get help filing, contact the Franchise Tax Board at 1-800-852-5711 or through its website at
