Charter Students and the First Days of School

Casa parents should be aware of the impact of their child’s attendance in the Charter School during the first twenty days of school. Children are not counted as an enrolled student until they attend their first full half-day of instruction.

Full funding for the year requires that your student be in attendance on the first day of school. 1/20th of the full year funding is deducted each day your child is not enrolled. For example, if your child misses the first 5 days of school consecutively, he/she is considered enrolled on the sixth day and the school loses ¼ of the funding for your child for the year.

We know parents want Casa to receive the full annual funding for their student. To insure that funding, parents should have their child in attendance on the first day of school.
