Each year districts conduct a survey to identify American Indian students attending our county public schools. This survey determines the amount of federal funding our Indian Education program will receive.  If your student is of American Indian descent, please take a few moments to complete the form below.  Your child is automatically enrolled in the program when you complete and return this form to your school.  The program is coordinated by the Nevada County Superintendent of Schools Office. For additional information contact Melissa Marcum at 530-478-6400.

card header iconLEA Medi-Cal Billing Option

The district, in cooperation with the California Department of Health Services, participates in the Medi-Cal Billing Option Program which provides the school district with additional federal Medicaid funds for selected student health services.  Parental consent must be obtained before the District can submit Medi-Cal claims.  This is a one-time consent that can be revoked by the parent at any time. This is often obtained as part of the Individualized Education Program (IEP) process or you may complete the form below. The parent will never pay a fee for health services nor will school health services currently provided to all students be changed by your response or lack of response.

This one page form allows you, at your option, to restrict the release of your student's directory information from all organizations, or to request that your student not participate in health, family life or sex education instruction,  or to request you be notified about any pesticide applications at school. Please be aware if you deny the release of directory information you will not be able to participate on a sports team.

Federal Law (No Child Left Behind, Section 9528) requires schools to disclose the names and addresses of students in grades 7‐12 to military recruiters, if so requested. However, a secondary school student or the parent of the student may request that the student’s name, address, and telephone listing not be released to the military without prior written parental consent.
