• Welcome to the Attendance Policies and Procedures Page

    Central Bucks School District attendance policies conform to the Pennsylvania School Code sections 1326 to 1333 dealing with compulsory school attendance.


    “Every child of compulsory school age having a legal residence in this Commonwealth… is required to attend a day school in which the subjects and activities prescribed by the standards of the State Board of Education are taught.”


    Attendance will be taken each school day.  Students that are not in class will be marked absent, or tardy if they arrive late.

    Parents and guardians will be able to submit absence requests via the Parent Portal for full day absences, late arrivals, early dismissals and vacations.  Please submit requests for vacation days at least 3 days in advance. Parents will NOT be required to submit an excuse either electronic or written.  PDF instructions on submitting an absence can be found here.  For more information, including video instructions, please visit the CBSD.org/For Parents/Attendance, which can be accessed here.

    You may call the Attendance Office if you have questions: 267-893-3901.
