Attendance Procedure Update

  • Attending school each day is the first step to student success in school. Recognizing the importance of school attendance, the state legislature revised our state law RCW 28A.225 on compulsory school attendance.

    Beginning March 27, 2017, the revised attendance procedure 3122P was implemented in all schools to establish and support consistent attendance practices districtwide for:
    • excusing absences
    • recording absences
    • conducting meetings
    • communications with parents/guardians to discuss student absences
    • parameters for pre-arranged absences for vacation or travel 
    The revised and updated information for procedure 3122P will be included in the printed and online Student Responsibilities and Rights handbook and provided to students and parents for the 2017-18 school year.
