Compulsory Attendance Law

about 1 month ago

COMPULSARY ATTENDANCE LAW

Greenwood School District 52 would like for all students to be successful throughout the educational process. Your child’s attendance is a major part of his/her success.

 

The State of South Carolina has a compulsory Attendance Law which requires children 5 years of age until the child attains his/her  17th birthday or graduates from high school to regularly attend school. A child 6 to 17 years old is TRUANT when the child has 3 consecutive unlawful absences or a total of 5 unlawful  absences.

 

When a student is truant, school officials will meet with the parent/guardian to complete an Attendance Intervention Plan. If unlawful absences continue, you and your child will be referred to DSS and/or Court for further intervention.

 

When your child is absent, always bring or send the written excuse when your child returns to school.

 

Respectfully,

Doris Louden

Attendance Officer
