California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento. Office of Bilingual Bicultural Education.
The handbook, an update of the 1986 handbook, is designed for Spanish-speaking parents of California public school students, and answers commonly-asked questions about the state public education system and its services, particularly those of interest to this population. Information is presented in both Spanish-and English-language sections, in a question-and-answer format. Chapters address these topics: matriculation, registration, and transportation; the basic curriculum at the elementary and secondary levels; student records, promotions, and testing policy and programs; bilingual education program types and eligibility; additional educational services, including alternative, adult, continuing, vocational, and work experience education, child development programs, year-round calendars, summer school, programs for gifted and talented students, and issuing of work permits; parent participation in the schools; and the structure of the public school system.
