PREKINDERGARTEN, KINDERGARTEN AND 1ST THROUGH 4TH GRADE STUDENTS ARE SUBJECT TO COMPULSORY ATTENDANCE LAWS.
Texas Education Code 25.085
Compulsory attendance regulations apply to students who miss a portion of the school day as well as those who are absent.
Punctuality is an important trait that shows respect for oneself, fellow students, teachers and the education system.
Students who are excessively tardy or consistently leave early will miss valuable instructional time.
Texas law states that it is the parents duty to monitor the students school attendance and require the student to attend school.
A complaint against the parent may be filed in court under Family Code 65.003(a) if the student is absent without excuse from school on 10 or more days, or parts of days, within a 6 month period in the same school year.
