What are the attendance requirements for the 2021-2022 School Year?

    ›[LOC] Section TEC 25.092 conditions credit or a final grade for a class on a student’s attendance for at least 90 percent of the days a class is offered. A student who is in attendance for at least 75 percent, but less than 90 percent, of the days a class is offered may be given credit or a final grade if the student completes a plan approved by the principal that provides for the student to meet the instructional requirements of the class. If the student is under the jurisdiction of a court in a criminal or juvenile justice proceeding, the student may not receive credit or a final grade by completing such a plan without the consent of the presiding judge. The board of trustees is required to appoint one or more attendance committees to hear petitions from students who do not earn class credit or a final grade through a plan approved by the principal. An attendance committee may give class credit or a final grade due to extenuating circumstances. (TEC 25.092)

    ›[Truancy] Unless specifically exempted by the TEC, §25.086, a child who is at least six years of age or younger than six years of age and has previously been enrolled in first grade, and who has not yet reached his or her 19th birthday, must attend school. (TEC 25.085)

    ›[Truancy] A person who voluntarily enrolls in or attends school after turning 19 years of age is also required to attend school each day. (TEC 25.001)

    ›[Truancy] Pre-K and kindergarten students are subject to compulsory school attendance while they are enrolled in school. On enrollment in pre-K or kindergarten, a child must attend school. However, if a child has not reached mandatory compulsory attendance age (six years old as of September 1 of the current school year), the child’s parent or guardian may withdraw the student from school, and the child will not be in violation of compulsory attendance. (TEC 25.085)
