Truancy & Chronic AbsenteeismTop of Page
Students who are Chronically Absent or Habitually Truant may be referred to the School Attendance Review Board (SARB). A student missing more than 30 minutes of instruction without an excuse three times during the school year would be considered truancy. A student is considered habitually truant when they are truant three times. A student who misses 10% (18 days) or more of the school year would be considered chronically absent.
