Humble ISD Elementary Absence/Truancy Process
Regular school attendance is essential for a student to make the most of his/her education- to benefit from teacher-led and school activities, to build each day’s learning on the previous day’s and to grow as an individual (Parent Handbook p.15).
When your child needs to be absent from school, please send a note with your child upon their return. If an extended absence needs to occur, please contact the campus registrar @ 281-641-2103, so we can work together in supporting your child.
When absences are unexcused, two state laws and the Humble ISD Truancy Process guide us when action is required.
Below is an outline of the Humble ISD Truancy Process.
· Daily Unexcused Absences: When your child has an unexcused absence, the district will send an attendance email. Please remember to send in a note to your child’s teacher.
· Three Unexcused Absences: When your child accrues 3 unexcused absences, the district will send a warning letter and the campus will contact the guardian to problem solve.
· Five Unexcused Absences: When your child accrues 5 unexcused absences, the campus will initiate an Attendance Behavior Improvement Plan. This plan will be discussed with and signed by the guardian.
· Ten Unexcused Absences: When your child accrues 10 unexcused absences, the campus will revise and continue the Attendance Behavior Improvement Plan. At this time the district may proceed with a Court Filing.
