The educational program offered by this District is predicated upon the presence of the student and requires continuity of instruction and classroom participation. Attendance shall be required of all students enrolled in the schools during the days and hours that the school is in session or during the attendance sessions to which s/he has been assigned.
A student in grades 9 through 12 may be considered a full-time equivalent student provided the student is enrolled in at least five (5) units of instruction, as defined by State law, per school year.
In accordance with statute, the Superintendent shall require, from the parent of each student of compulsory school age or from an adult student who has been absent from school or from class for any reason, a statement of the cause for such absence.
The Board of Education reserves the right to verify such statements and to investigate the cause of each single absence or prolonged absence.
NOTE: Please be sure your student signs in through the Attendance Office if arriving at school after the start of the day. Students who are being excused for only a portion of the day need to sign out and back in through the Attendance Office.
