Reminder for Fire Victims: Update to State Emergency Attendance & Instructional Credit Form

  • Print

January 3, 2018 The CDE recently revised "Request for Allowance of Attendance Due to Emergency Conditions, Form J-13A." Form J-13A is used to request approval for attendance and instructional time credit in the event of an emergency, such as the recent California wildfires. In order to accommodate J-13A forms currently pending approval, the CDE will accept either the old Form J-13A or the updated Form J-13A until January 31, 2018.

Effective February 1, 2018, the CDE will only accept the updated Form J-13A.

Instructions and FAQs related to the revised form are now available on the CDE's Web site at
