Every Hawk Every Day! Good Attendance Starts Now!

Did you know?

  • Starting in preschool and kindergarten, too many absences can cause children to fall behind in school.
  • Missing 10%, or about 2 days each month over the course of a school year, can make it harder to learn to read.
  • Students can still fall behind if they miss just 1 or 2 days every few weeks. • Being late to school may lead to poor attendance
  • Absences and tardiness can affect the whole classroom if the teacher has to slow down learning to help children catch up.

Attendance Law

The Texas State Compulsory Attendance Law requires students ages 6 through 19 to attend school. Section 25.085 requires students to go to school each school day for the entire school day unless exempted by law. This requirement includes students who have voluntarily enrolled in prekindergarten or kindergarten and students who are nineteen years old or older.

Students who violate this law may get referral(s) for court proceedings against the parent, guardian or student to enforce the law.

Violation of the law occurs when students get unexcused absences for 10 or more days or parts of days within a six-month period.

Partial Absence

Students are required to attend school from the time the school day begins until the time the school day ends. A partial day absence occurs when a student is not present for part of the school day.

A student who arrives late or leaves early will get a partial absence.

The school will decide whether the partial absence is excused or unexcused using the same standards for determining the status of full-day absences.
