Attendance State Policies

       Florida Statutes 232.09 and 232.10 clearly defines the responsibility of parents for the attendance of their children at school and requires that they provide an explanation for any absence from school. Parents must be held responsible for their children's attendance, for being to school on time, and not leaving school before the end of the school day without an acceptable excuse.

  Parents must notify the school the day their child returns from an absence as to the reason for the absence.
