Attendance Matters - Help Us Keep Our Students in School!
Who is truant?
The State of Texas Compulsory Attendance Law states: Every child who is at least six (6) years of age, or who is younger than six (6) years of age and has previously been enrolled in the first grade, and who has not yet reached his or her 18th birthday shall attend school. Upon enrollment in pre-kindergarten or kindergarten, students are subject to compulsory attendance rules.
