Student Attendance Expectations

Regular and on-time attendance is essential for a child's success in school. It is also a requirement established by the State of California State Education Code and Administrative Code, Title V.

Some key excerpts from these sources are:

  • Students shall attend school punctually and regularly.
  • Students shall be required to provide validation of absence for health reasons.
  • Students shall remain on school grounds during the entire day unless granted permission to leave by authorized personnel.
