Attendance & Absence
In California, all children are required by law to attend school between the ages of 6 and 18, and must have good attendance records as well. The state defines legally truant as a student who misses school with a combination of the following types of absences without a valid excuse:
- three unexcused absences and/or
- three tardies and/or
- three absences of more than 30 minutes
You'll need to contact the school office within two days of your child's return to school or the absences will be recorded as unexcused.
