EHA(LEGAL) - CURRICULUM DESIGN: BASIC INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAM
Request for Program
If the parents or guardians of at least 22 students at a school request a transfer for the same school year to another school in the district for the purpose of enrolling in an educational program offered at that school, the district shall offer such a program, beginning with the following school year, at the school from which the transfers were requested. The program may be offered by teleconference.
"Educational program" means a course or series of courses in the required curriculum other than a fine arts course or a career and technology course.
Education Code 28.003
A parent is entitled to request, with the expectation that the request will not be unreasonably denied:
- The addition of a specific academic class in the course of study of the parent's child in keeping with the required curriculum if sufficient interest is shown in the addition of the class to make it economically practical to offer the class.
- That the parent's child be permitted to attend a class for credit above the child's grade level, whether in the child's school or another school, unless the board or its designated representative expects that the child cannot perform satisfactorily in the class.
The decision of the board concerning such a request is final and may not be appealed. [See FNG]

Videotape or Recording
