Families:  Complete an Alternative Income Form to Help Your School Maximize Its Funding
Top of Page

Dear Parents, Guardians, and Families,
Thank you so much for being so patient with us as we are navigating these uncharted waters.  We truly appreciate your support of our students and schools.
Under the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), a portion of state funding will be determined based on the demographics of the student population, with higher funding on a per student basis.  Therefore, we are required to establish and confirm the number of students that represent these student groups by having families complete the Alternative Income Form.  By taking the time to fill out this form you are taking part in a process that provides thousands of dollars in funds to the school your student attends.  Only one Alternative Income Form needs to be filled out per household.
Our goal is to ensure that Wheatland High School District's students receive the maximum amount of funds that we are eligible to receive by encouraging our families to complete the Alternative Income Form.  To receive the maximum amount, we must have 100% of eligible students/families complete the form.
By completing the Alternative Income Form and turning it in as soon as possible, you will help our schools reach the goal of getting funds to support our students’ academic achievement, creating equitable learning environments, and building partnerships to develop leadership at all levels.  We recognize that this is confidential information and will not be shared with anyone for any purpose other than verifying that your student is eligible.
Thank you for your time and support in ensuring that we graduate every single student college, career, and community ready.
Please complete the form no later than December 10, 2020.

Educationally yours,
Nicole Newman, Superintendent
