TITLE I PARENT INVOLVEMENT POLICY
Regular attendance by students is vital to learning, and it impacts the amount of funding that local schools receive. Schools statewide lose millions of dollars each year due to student absenteeism. Parents whose children are absent or tardy should be sure to send a note to school including the reason for the absence. Schools are required by the state to track this information.
State education code says that a student absent from school without a valid excuse on three occasions or tardy or absent for more than any 30-minute period in a school day on three occasions in one school year is considered to be truant. At that point, parents receive letters from the school district notifying them of their obligation to make certain their children attend school. These letters state that parents who fail to meet this obligation may be subject to prosecution. Proper tracking of absences is dependent upon parental cooperation and can help parents to avoid receiving such notices.
One of the best ways to ensure student success is to encourage and support good attendance, but when tardiness or an absence is unavoidable, parents should remember to keep in close touch with their children’s school.
