TRUANCY (UNEXCUSED or UNVERIFIED ABSENCES)
Any student who has 3 or more days of unverified absence in a school year is a truant (California Ed Code 48260). Students with excessive absences and/or tardies will be referred to the Student Attendance Review Board (SARB).
Students who have three or more UNEXCUSED absences will receive a Notification of Truancy letter. Personal leave, such as a vacation or non-school sponsored activities are not considered an excused absence. Students who have eight or more EXCUSED absences will receive an Excessive Absence Notification letter. Please note that when a student has had 14 absences in the school year for illness, any further absences for illness must be verified by a physician.
