AB 104 Information

ABOUT AB 104

State Assembly Bill (AB) 104  provides options for students and parents/guardians

to address learning recovery needs. Each area of the new law is described below.

ABOUT RETENTION

Parents/guardians of students enrolled in kindergarten through 11th grade

during the 2020-21 school year who received deficient grades for at least one-half of the coursework in 2020-21 may provide a written request to the school for a meeting to discuss student retention for the 2021-22 school year.

 

Staff will meet with the parent/guardian and student to discuss learning recovery options, research regarding retention, and data regarding student progress. The ABLE Charter Schools (ABLE)  has the final decision. If you are interested in a discussion regarding retention, please contact your child’s school.

 

Parents/guardians of eligible students must request the retention consultation in writing.

ABLE then has 30 calendar days to hold the consultation and 10 calendar days after

that meeting to issue a final decision.

HOW TO REQUEST RETENTION CONSULTATION 

If you would like to request a retention consultation for your “eligible child” (a student who has received deficient grades for at least one-half of the student's coursework in the 2020-21 academic year), please fill out and submit a request form. CLICK HERE.

You will be contacted and a consultation meeting will be held within 30 calendar days after submitting your request.

 

 

GRADUATION

Students enrolled in their 3rd or 4th year of high school during the 2020-21 school year and who are not on track to graduate in four years, will be provided the opportunity to complete the state graduation requirements to graduate. Options can include, but are not limited to, a fifth year of instruction or credit recovery. We are in the process of identifying eligible students and will provide more information as it becomes available.
