Diablo Community Day School

Diablo Community Day School

Diablo Community Day School is a school for 7-12 graders that provides a structured learning environment for students who have not had successful school experiences in the areas of attendance, behavior, or academic achievement.  All students are placed here via the MDUSD Student Services Department.  Ideally most students are in this school program for no more than oneyear and then return to an appropriate school placement determined by Student Services or the MDUSD School Board. 

 Our students are not at-risk

Every Day Counts

  • Absences from school and classes cause students to get less instructional time on information needed to improve academic achievement
  • Absences from school and classes may cause students to get less social and emotional development
  • Truany = 3 or more unexcused absences, or arriving more than 30 minutes late to class and the parent/guardian has no knowledge of where the child is
  • According to the state of California, satisfactory attendance is accomplished when a student has less than 9 absences in a school year
  •  EVERY DAY COUNTS

How to Report Absences

Attendance at school affects a student's academic achievement.  Strive to help your student stay healthy.

- Call in your student's absences each day that the student is not able to attend school.  

- You can leave a message on the school phone number 24 hours a day (925-676-6862).

- The parent/caregiver has 72 hours to report an absences before it gets designated as a "truancy".

- Not all absences from school are "excused absences", even if the parent/caregiver reports them to the office

- Refer to our student/family handbook for information regarding "excused absences".

Electronic Device Policy (BP 5131)

The Governing Board believes that the personal use of electronic devices during the school day creates a distraction which interferes with the educational process.  The electronic signaling device must remain turned off during the instructional school day. 

Students who violate this policy will have to turn their electronic device in to the office.  The device will be returned at the end of the school day.
