JEDA - Truancy

Code: JEDA
Adopted: 8/13/97

Truancy is defined as absence from school without permission.

The district believes 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.

With these beliefs in mind, the district will develop procedures that foster a partnership with parents in the early detection of truancy, related counseling and appropriate consequences.
