ABSENCES MUST BE CLEARED WITHIN ONE DAY
Compulsory attendance laws require us to verify reasons for all absences. Students who attend continuation high schools must spend at least 15 hours per week or three hours per day at school. (California Department of Education, 2018) Students are required to clear all absences within 24 hours. Parents may phone the office on the day of the absence or students may present a note to the Attendance Clerk on the day they return. Failure to clear an absence within 24 hours will result in the absence being marked until notice is provided. Uncleared absences are considered cuts and are treated as a truancy issue. As a result of changes instate law, other absences may now be considered truant, as well, if they are persistent and without valid documentation. Please note the consequences of uncleared absences and cuts in the school discipline policy section.
