Programs and Resources:

The office of Child Welfare and Attendance provides services for the District, parents and students through a number of ways. While our most important role for the District is to manage the attendance systems for the schools, we are responsible for many areas where we interact with parents and students. Some of these areas include:

·         Enrollment Verification




·         Attendance

·         Student Attendance Review Board (SARB)

·         Truancy

·         Health and Welfare

·         Inter & Intradistrict Transfers


Homeless Liaison:

Banning Unified School District receives McKinney-Vento funds and offers services to students and families who qualify under the act including, but not limited to transportation to school, registration assistance, providing materials for school, helping parents obtain a diploma or receive post high school education, referrals to food and clothing sources and emergency assistance with utilities.  For more details please contact, 951-922-0200.

Foster Youth Liaison:

Banning Unified School District is committed to all of its students especially those whose circumstances may require extra attention and support in order for the student to feel connected to school and find school success.  For details regarding Foster Youth Services please contact Dr. Barbara Wolford, Director of Student Support Services, 951-922-0224. 

Interdistrict Attendance Permits:

Students who live within the boundaries of BUSD are welcomed and expected to attend BUSD schools.  However, there are circumstances, from time to time, where a student who lives in BUSD's boundaries wishes to attend a school in another district, or where a student who lives outside the district may wish to attend a school in Banning Unified.  This would be accomplished by completing an Interdistrict Attendance Permit and having it approved by the Director of Student Support Services.  Approval would be based on meeting one of the valid reasons for requesting the permit and upholding the terms and conditions regarding attendance, citizenship and scholarship of the permit.  Permits are granted for one year only and must be renewed annually if a child is to continue attending outside of their district of residence.


Interdistrict Attendance Permits may be obtained at Student Services and parents/guardians seeking a permit can stop by the office located at Coombs Alternative Education (Coombs North) 1151 West Wilson St., Banning, CA 92220 or call Karissa Garcia, CWA Clerk, at 951-922-0215, to receive a form and review the terms and conditions.

The information and website link has been added to the website per CDE request.
Please read below:

As you know, the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) sets out the requirements for the protection of privacy of parents and students, including privacy of student records. Generally, parents and/or students must provide written consent before an educational agency may disclose Pupil Identification Information (PII). However, there are exceptions to this general rule. Specifically, an educational agency must provide PII when ordered by a court, which the CDE has been ordered to do in this litigation. The CDE is obligated to inform the parent or student that the court has ordered it to produce documents and/or data that includes those individuals’ PII, and that such persons may object directly to the court regarding this disclosure. To that end, and to comply with FERPA, the CDE is requesting LEAs and SELPAs post the following link to CDE’s website: from February 1, 2016, through April 1, 2016. The link provides the Notice and Objection Form required by FERPA.
