Regular school attendance is necessary for a successful school experience. Instructional continuity is interrupted and the valuable interaction that occurs with teachers and among fellow students is lost when a student is frequently absent, tardy or dismissed early from school. Realizing that regular attendance in school is necessary for students to gain maximum benefits from public education, the Board urges all parents/guardians to stress punctuality and regular attendance habits with their children. Policy No. 204 of the Council Rock School District regulates attendance in the schools of Council Rock. In addition, the school laws of Pennsylvania, specifically Act 138 of 2016, require every parent, guardian, or other person having control or charge of a child or children between the ages of eight and eighteen to send them to school. The laws further require that, “Once a parent elects to send his child to school, the child must attend continuously until eighteen years of age, has graduated from a senior high school or has secured legal employment at age sixteen.” As we begin the 2021-2022 school year, we want to inform you of our policies regarding attendance.
