Student Release Procedures
Health and Immunizations
Under the law known as SB 277, beginning January 1, 2016, exemptions based on personal beliefs will no longer be an option for the vaccines that are currently required for entry into child care or school in California. Most families will not be affected by the new law because their children have received all required vaccinations. Personal beliefs exemptions on file for a child already attending child care or school will remain valid until the child reaches the next immunization checkpoint at kindergarten (including transitional kindergarten) or 7th grade.

For more information about SB 277, please review these Frequently Asked Questions

For more information about school immunization requirements and resources, please visit the California Department of Public Health’s website​, or contact your local health department.

Authorization for Disclosure of Health Information:  This document provides authorization from the Parent/guardian for the disclosure and/or use of pupil health information between FUESD and any specified external agency. This document will allow school staff to contact your child’s physician regarding medical needs for school.

Medication Administration at School

The Physician Statement and Medication Authorization forms are required for school staff to administer any medication while at school.  The physician statement must be signed by a licensed physician and is valid for one year.  Please contact the Health Care Specialist at your school site for more information regarding medication administration at school.

Report of Health Examination for School Entry: Through early and periodic health care, you will maximize your child’s ability to learn in school. For this reason, the State of California has the “Child Health and Developmental Prevention” (CHDP) Program. It requires all children to complete a physical examinations 18 months before and 90 days after entering the first grade. Please complete this form with your child’s primary health care provided before or during first grade.

FUESD Health History:  Updated health information is important to providing a safe and healthy learning environment. Please submit an updated Health History form to the Health Care Specialist at your child’s school site each year. (This new pdf has both the english and Spanish versions in one document and can replace the two separate documents on the website, I also removed the 2017-18 school year so that we won’t have to update this annually)

Oral Health Assessment: “To make sure your child is ready for school, California law, Education Code Section 49452.8, requires that your child have an oral health assessment (dental check-up) during his or her first year in public school. Please complete this form with your child’s dentist and return it to the Health Care Specialist at your child’s school.”

Retention Consultation Request

Retention Consultation Request From 



On Thursday, July 1, 2021, Governor Newsom signed Assembly Bill 104 into law, and we’d like to provide you with important information on how this legislation may relate to your student. The bill contained three major provisions: retention, grading, and graduation policies. 

Below you will find information about each provision:  


In preparation for the 2021-22 school year, students will be eligible for a retention consultation if they received deficient grades for at least one-half of their coursework in 2020-21 and their parents are interested in holding them back a grade level. Deficient grades include grades of D, F, ,No Pass, or 1’s. This temporary retention policy is in addition to any existing district retention policies.    

Parents/guardians of eligible students must request the retention consultation in writing. Districts then have 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 pupil” (a pupil who has received deficient grades for at least one-half of the pupil’s coursework in the 2020-21 academic year), please follow these steps:

  1. Review the Frequently Asked Questions below
  2. Print, fill out, sign, and date the AB 104 Retention Consultation Request form. The form can be found in the FAQ’s below. 
  3. Turn in the filled out AB 104 Retention Consultation Request form to your school administrator or clerk
  4. You will be contacted and a consultation meeting will be held within 30 calendar days after submitting your request

Retention Frequently Asked Questions

Who can apply for the AB 104 Retention?

Students in grades K-11 that are eligible pupils. An “eligible pupil” is defined as a student who received deficient grades for at least one-half of the student’s coursework in 2020-2021 academic year.

K = NT (Needs More Time)

Grades 1-6 = 1’s (Below Grade Level Proficiency) & N (Needs Improvement)

Grades 7-8 = D/F in ½ the core content courses 

How soon will the meeting be held after I submit my AB 104 Retention Consultation request?

The consultation meeting must be held within 30 calendar days after receiving a written request for an “eligible pupil”.

If a student has been previously retained does the AB 104 Retention apply?

If your student is an “eligible pupil”, you may request the AB 104 Retention Consultation.

How soon will I be notified of the final determination of the student’s retention?

You will be notified within 10 calendar days of the consultation of the final determination in writing.

If I am an elementary school or middle school student, can this affect my future high school sports eligibility?

Retention can affect future athletic eligibility. California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) has rules around the age of students and eligibility. Please refer to CIF Bylaws 203 and 204 to read about the current age eligibility rules for high school sports.

What does the research say about retention?

Below are some studies about the effects of pupil retention.

  • Jimerson, Shane, Sarah M. Woehr, and Amber M. Kaufman. 2007. Grade Retention and Promotion: Information for Parents (PDF). Bethesda, Maryland: National Association for School Psychologists (accessed April 28, 2016). 
    • Grade retention is one of the most powerful predictors of high school dropout. In adolescence, retained students are more likely to experience problems such as poor interactions with peers, disliking school, behavior problems, and lower self-esteem.
  • Learning Disabilities Association. 1998. To Promote or Retain?  Pittsburgh, PA:Learning Disabilities Association (accessed July 6, 2015).
    • The weight of the evidence of literally hundreds of studies shows that retaining children does not produce higher achievement. Rather than flunking students, schools should provide high quality instruction for children who find learning difficult.
  • Thompson, C. and E. Cunningham. 2000. Retention and Social Promotion: Research and Implications for Policy  (PDF). ERIC Digest Number 161 (accessed July 6, 2015).
    • Retaining students, regardless of the grade at which they are retained, increases the likelihood that they will drop out of school. Consistent with the Chicago findings, the advantage for retained students declined each year and disappeared altogether after three years.
