JEDA - Truancy
“Truancy” is defined as absence from school without permission.
Irregular attendance is one of the factors associated with student failure and frustration with the school experience. A fundamental purpose for insisting on punctual, regular school attendance is to help each student develop habits of responsibility.
The district will develop procedures and explore educational options that foster a partnership with parents in the early detection of truancy, related counseling and appropriate consequences.
