Form J-13A

Information regarding submission of the Request for Allowance of Attendance Due to Emergency Conditions, Form J-13A.

Overview

The Request for Allowance of Attendance Due to Emergency Conditions, Form J-13A is used to obtain approval of attendance and instructional time credit pursuant to Education Code (EC) sections 41422, 46200, 46391, 46392 and California Code of Regulations (CCR), Title 5, Section 428. Approval of a Form J-13A request from the California Department of Education, combined with other attendance records, serve to document a local educational agency’s (LEA) compliance with instructional time laws and provide authority to maintain school for less than the required instructional days and minutes without incurring a fiscal penalty to the LEA’s Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) funding.

In the event of a closure due to emergency conditions there is not an immediate impact to LCFF funding and there is not a specific deadline to submit a Form J-13A, thus there is not an urgent need to file Form J-13A in the midst of the emergency event. For additional information review the frequently asked questions (FAQs) below.
