501.9 Student Absences - Excused


Regular attendance by students is essential for students to obtain the maximum opportunities from the education program.  Parents and students are encouraged to ensure an absence from school is a necessary absence.  Students will attend school unless excused by the principal of their attendance center.

It is the responsibility of the superintendent, in conjunction with the principal, to develop administrative regulations regarding this policy.
