Parents should be aware of the truancy law, also known as the Becca Bill, passed by the state legislature in 1995. This law requires the school district to file a truancy petition directly with the juvenile court if a student has five unexcused absences in a month or ten in a school year.
School handbooks outline the attendance policies in detail. Parents should be familiar with these policies and direct any questions to the principal. You may get a copy of the school handbook from the principal. Please note that the Board of Directors approved new attendance standards that start with the 2015-16 school year. You can read the District's attendance policy here.
