Texas Public School Law states that students must be in attendance at least 90% of the time to receive credit for a course. If a student is in attendance for LESS than that time, they will not receive credit for that particular course. Students must be aware that they may not miss more than nine (9) days in any semester course, or eighteen (18) days for any full year-long course. Click on the link "Do You Have Excessive Absences?"
IT IS THE PARENTS’ LEGAL RESPONSIBILITY TO ENSURE THAT THEIR CHILD ATTENDS SCHOOL REGULARLY AND IS ON TIME.
The State Compulsory School Attendance Law requires that:
Children between the ages of six(6) and eighteen (18) must attend school;
Children enrolled in pre-kindergarten or kindergarten are required to follow the same state attendance law;
Children enrolled in school must attend all day, every day, for the entire school year.
