Truancy Policy


TRUANCY

 Students who are absent from school without the knowledge and consent of their parents/guardians and the administration, or students who leave school during any session without the consent of the principal, shall be considered truant.

Truancy may result in the student's placement in Saturday detention, the Zumwalt Alternative Program or suspension from school. The building principal will determine the penalty in accordance with the current code of student conduct and guidelines for discipline and will also provide for the student's re-admittance to class.
