5200: Attendance

Regular and timely attendance furthers the benefits of instructional programs, aids in the development of self-discipline and responsibility, and minimizes disruption of the educational process. Children who are of the mandatory attendance age, or who are younger than mandatory attendance age and are enrolled in any public school, are required to attend school each day the school is open and in session, except when excused by school authorities, the child has graduated from high school, or attendance is otherwise excused by law. District students may be excused from school provided they meet the requirements of applicable law, and District rule.
