Attendance for Eighteen Year Olds

The Compulsory Attendance Law does not apply to students who are eighteen years of age or older.  It is recommended that parents check the district policy pertaining to attendance of these students noting penalties for six (6) or more unexcused days of absence and unexcused tardiness.

§ 11.24. Unaccounted absences.

 Students whose names are on the active membership roll, who are at any time in the school term absent from school for 10 consecutive school days, shall thereafter be removed from the active membership roll unless one of the following occurs:

   (1)  The district has been provided with evidence that absence may be legally excused.

   (2)  Compulsory attendance prosecution has been or is being pursued.
