Visiting Aurum Preparatory Academy

All visitors to Aurum Charter School must identify themselves at the front door for entry. When pressing the intercom, please look into the camera and announce who you are and the reason for your visit. Upon entry, please sign in at the office and wear a visitor badge while on campus.

Supplies Lists

We ask each family to send the listed personal supplies to their student(s) on the first day of school. Please note that donating classroom supplies is OPTIONAL and will be used to benefit all homeroom and advisory classroom groups throughout the school year.

Meal Services

Aurum Preparatory Academy’s meal program will continue to provide free meals (Breakfast and Lunch) to all students at no cost.

 

This program is offered to students and school districts throughout California as part of the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program. Parents can save time and money while ensuring their children have nutritious meals. School meals are also an opportunity for children to have a hot lunch and to try new things. Our lunch menu offers a variety of hot and cold entrées, fresh fruit, vegetables, and milk.

 

Families do not need to sign up or register for free school meals.  We are still encouraging families to continue to complete the Free and Reduced Price Meal Form so that we have accurate school reporting and critical school funding for additional services benefiting Aurum students and families.

Acceptance of Coursework: The Charter School will accept any coursework satisfactorily completed by a homeless student at any public school, a juvenile court school, a school in a country other than the United States, and/or a nonpublic, nonsectarian school or agency

 

The Charter School will credit homeless students for partially completing courses while attending a public school, a juvenile court school in a country other than the United States, and a nonpublic, nonsectarian school or agency. Suppose the student did not complete the entire course. In that case, the Charter School shall not require the student to retake the portion of the course the student completed unless the Charter School, in consultation with the holder of educational rights for the student, finds that the student is reasonably able to complete the requirements in time to graduate from high school. When partial credit is awarded in a particular course, the homeless student shall be enrolled in the same or equivalent course, if applicable, so that the student may continue and complete the entire course. These students shall not be prevented from taking or retaking a course to meet California State University or the University of California admission eligibility requirements.

 

Any homeless student who enrolls at the Charter School shall be provided with a copy of the Charter School's complete policy at the time of enrollment. A copy of the full Policy is available at the main office.
