Welcome to the Attendance Policies and Procedures
Please be aware that as of February 2020, PA Legislation (Act 138) has been revised. Act 138 stipulates that after three (3) days of unlawful absences (including unexcused absences) within one school year, parents will receive a letter from their child's school outlining the consequences of habitual truancy and inviting them to a School Attendance Improvement Conference (as required of schools per the legislation). Additional absences may result in a referral to a school-based attendance improvement program, referral to Bucks County Children and Youth Services, and/or a citation for violating compulsory attendance laws. Penalties for conviction include fines of up to $750.00 for each offense. 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".
TO REPORT AN ABSENCE:
Instead of receiving an automated call if your child is absent, the district will be sending a text message to all cell phone numbers you have listed as “guardians” in Infinite Campus. Please make sure that your cell phone information is updated. When your child is absent, you will receive a text message at 11:00am. You will then receive an email at 2:30pm to confirm that your child was absent for the full day.
For additional information about school attendance please see School Board Policy 204.
