Wow. What do you guys all think of this?
I always tried to make it a practice of not taking my kids out of school for dental or doctor appointments. Really any appointments of any kind. I’m still trying to understand how a first grader can miss 27 days of school. That’s a whole lot of missing time. I do know once you get to junior and senior high, if you miss more than X amount of days you start failing classes and it doesn’t matter what “excuse” you have. If you miss too many days, you fail with no questions asked. I think state guidelines say each student needs “so many” hours of each class in order to graduate.
But to be fined or go to jail for it, I’m not sure. What do you think? Would it help or hinder?
