Research indicates a high correlation between school attendance and academic performance. Students are more successful in school when they are present daily. Learning is a progressive activity, each day’s lesson builds upon the previous one, and being present daily ensures your child’s academic success.
The Franklin-McKinley School District complies with compulsory education laws which require children ages 6-18 to attend school until graduation or passing the California High School Proficiency Exam (CHSPE).
The District places high priority on ensuring your child is in school everyday. Through the Attention to Attendance campaign, Franklin-McKinley School District sends home friendly reminders and attendance notifications.
Student Discipline Overview
Franklin-McKinley School District is actively pursuing a safe environment for all students. The District enforces California Education Code 48900 and 48915 as related to disciplinary issues and delivers appropriate and equitable discipline when necessary. Each school site shall follow its school discipline plan and consider suspension from school only when other means of correction have not been successful or where the student's presence would constitute a danger to persons or property and/or seriously disrupt the educational process. District administrators are continuing to employ effective alternatives to suspension that correct disruptive behavior and keep students in school where they can receive the benefits of a Franklin-McKinley education.
