Enrollment Procedures for New Students
proof of immunization, birth certificate, evidence of current grade
level (report card or withdrawal form from previous school), and proof
of residence in the Cordova Middle School attendance area must be
provided when enrolling a new student.
A student will be
assigned to a classroom by the principal or the principal's designee
based upon the number of students currently in the classroom, a
student's needs, and/or other factors that are deemed appropriate in
making the best possible placement. All classroom placements are
considered temporary and can be adjusted by the principal at any time
depending on the needs of the school.
Out of Variance Procedures
moving is something unavoidable parents should try to keep their child
enrolled at the same school whenever possible. Students who move out of
the Cordova Middle School attendance area may apply for a variance by
coming to the office and completing an out of area variance request
form. If approved, the child(ren) will be allowed to continue at Cordova
Middle School as a student. The Alhambra School District will
accommodate as many attendance variance requests as possible from both
inside and outside the District attendance area. Please contact the
principal if you wish to request an attendance variance for your child.
The principal of the school will be happy to discuss the request with
you. Granting of variances is a site-based decision by the school
principal. The decision to grant a variance is based on enrollment for
the grade level of each school.
If a variance request is granted, parents and students agree to the following:
- Maintain good attendance (95% or higher)
- Maintain passing grades
- Maintain good behavior (no out of school suspensions or excessive detentions or referrals)
- Parents will provide transportation and the student will not ride Alhambra District buses
- Students will not arrive at school earlier than 7:45 a.m.
will pick students up no later than 3:40 p.m. for regular dismissal, or
4:40 p.m., if the student stays for an after-school activity.
Failure to comply with these requirements may result in the immediate revocation of the variance.
Please notify the office at least two days
in advance of your child's withdrawal. Prior to being withdrawn, all
school materials and books must be turned in (including textbooks and
library materials). In addition, all fines must be paid. Parents must
sign a copy of the withdrawal form. This form is a legal document and
will be needed to register your child at his/her new school.
