Attendance

Right Place. Right Time. Ready to Learn!

 

One of the most important things your children can do to achieve academic success is also one of the most basic, go to school every day. In fact, research has shown that it usually takes students three days to catch up with school work for every day they’ve missed. By making your child’s school attendance a priority, you will be taking an important step in supporting your child’s school success, and setting a good example. Every day counts.

What’s the Law?

 

Washington law requires children from age 8 to 17 to attend a public school, private school, or to receive home-based instruction (homeschooling). Children who are 6- or 7-years-old are not required to be enrolled in school. However, if parents enroll their 6- or 7-year-old, the student must attend full-time. Youth who are 16 or older may be excused from attending public school if they have graduated or acquired a GED. Washington’s truancy law, often termed the “Becca Bill”, is intended to curb school truancy before it becomes habitual. The law requires many things of schools, but only requires one thing of students: attend school. If a student does not attend school the law requires the school district to take action.

In addition to the law, we have Policy 3122 and Procedure 3122P in place with regards to excused and unexcused absences.
