Truancy Procedures

  1. Upon the third unexcused absence in a four-week period or the fifth total unexcused absence, a truancy concern letter will be mailed to the parent/guardian at the home address on record with the school.  Truancy Prevention Measures will be determined and implemented.

  2. In addition, upon the fifth total unexcused absence the parent/guardian will be required to participate in a conference with campus administration to further discuss truancy prevention. The parent/guardian and the student will sign a Student Attendance Contract. 
  3. Following the required conference, the parent/guardian and student will meet with the campus administration and any relevant staff to refine the Truancy Prevention Measures being implemented. 
  4. If a student accrues ten unexcused absences in a six-month period, a truancy referral will be sent to the appropriate authority unless the student is eligible for one of the exceptions under the law.
