JEDA - Truancy

Code:  JEDA
Readopted:  5/14/18
Adopted:   3/10/97
Orig. Code(s):  JEDA

“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.
