The Attendance Processing Center works in coordination with the Humble ISD police department to educate parents, support campus attendance interventions, and enforce the compulsory school attendance laws.

Did you know . . . ?

  • If your student has a doctor's visit but attends school for part of the school day, he/she is not charged with an absence by the state as long as the attendance office receives documentation of the office visit.

  • A court visit by the student is not counted as an absence if the attendance office receives the court note for documentation.

  • In order for an absence to be changed from unexcused to excused, documentation must be provided to the school attendance office within 48 hours from when the student returns to school. After 48 hours, the absence will remain unexcused, unless approved by a campus administrator.

  • You can keep track of your son/daughter's attendance and grades by signing in to the Home Access Center (HAC).  If you have not yet set up a HAC account, you can do so at that time.

Compulsory Attendance Notice

Texas Education Code Sec. §25.085 and §25.095

TEC Sec. §25.085. Compulsory School Attendance states:

  • (a) A child who is required to attend school under this section shall attend school each school day for the entire period the program of instruction is provided.

  • (b) Unless specifically exempted by Section 25.086, a child who is at least six (6) years of age, or who is younger than six (6) years of age and has previously been enrolled in first grade, and who has not yet reached his/her 19th birthday, shall attend school

  • (c) Upon enrollment in prekindergarten or kindergarten, a child shall attend school.

IN ADDITION: A person who voluntarily enrolls in school or voluntarily attends school after the person's 19th birthday shall attend school each school day for the entire period the program of instruction is offered. A school district may revoke for the remainder of the school year the enrollment of a person who has more than five absences in a semester that are not excused. A person whose enrollment is revoked under this subsection may be considered an unauthorized person on school district grounds. 

TEC Sec. §25.095. Warning Notice

If a student is absent from school on ten (10) or more days or parts of days within a six-month period in the same school year:

  • (1) the student’s parent/person standing in parental relation is subject to prosecution for “Parent Contributing to Nonattendance” under Texas Education Code Section §25.093; and

  • (2) the student is subject to referral to a truancy court for truant conduct under Section 65.003(a), Family Code.

It is the duty of the parent or person standing in parental relation to the student to monitor the student’s school attendance and require the student to attend school. If a student fails to attend school without excuse on 10 or more days or parts of days within a six-month period in the same school year, the school district may file a complaint against the student’s parent in a county, justice, or municipal court for an offense under Section 25.093.

When a student has been absent from school without excuse on three or more days or parts of days within a four-week period, the parent will be notified in writing that the student is subject to truancy prevention measures under Section 25.0915 and to request a conference with school officials to discuss the absences.

Attendance Less Than 90%

Chronic Absence Students: Students With Less Than 90% Attendance

A student is considered to be chronically absent if his/her absences (both excused and unexcused) add up to more than 10% of the days the student is in school. This is commonly referred to as the "90% rule."

According to the Texas Education Code, Sections 25.092(a) and (a-1): 

Except as provided by this section, a student in any grade level from kindergarten through grade 12 may not be given credit or a final grade for a class unless the student is in attendance for at least 90 percent of the days the class is offered.

A student who is in attendance for at least 75 percent but less than 90 percent of the days a class is offered may be given credit or a final grade for the class if the student completes a plan approved by the school's principal that provides for the student to meet the instructional requirements of the class.

As a courtesy to parents, a warning notification is sent to parents/guardians when a student is in danger of falling below 90% attendance based on both excused and unexcused absences.  You may be asked to contact your child's school to set up a conference to discuss your child's absences.

If there are special circumstances involved concerning your child’s absences, please notify the campus administrator and/or counselor as soon as possible. Resources are often available to assist families who are in difficult circumstances, and your child’s administrator and counselor can assist you with investigating potential solutions.
