Attendance Policy #204

Attendance Policy

For more information, please read District Policy # 204.

The Board requires that school age students enrolled in district schools attend school regularly, in accordance with state laws. The educational program offered by the District is predicated upon the presence of the student and requires continuity of instruction and classroom participation in order for students to achieve academic standards and consistent educational progress.

The District will enforce attendance rules in accordance with state law and this policy.

School age shall be defined as the period of a child’s life from the earliest admission age for the district’s kindergarten program until graduation from high school or the end of the school term in which a student reaches the age of twenty-one (21) years, whichever occurs first.

Attendance shall be required of all students enrolled in district schools during the days and hours that school is in session.
