Do You Have Questions About Attendance, Truancy and the Law?

Texas Education Code 25.0951 states that:
If a student fails to attend school without excuse on ten or more days or parts of days within a six-month period in the same school year, the District shall within ten school days of the student’s tenth absence:
  1.  File a complaint against the student or the student’s parent or both in a county, justice, or municipal court for an offense under Education Code 25.093 or 25.094, as appropriate, or refer the student to a juvenile court in a county with a population of less than 100,000; or
  2.  Refer the student to a juvenile court for conduct indicating a need for supervision under Family Code 51.03(b)(2).
