Los Angeles Unified School District Student Attendance Policy
The Los Angeles Unified School District believes that student attendance and student achievement are closely intertwined. Students who develop patterns of good attendance are much more likely to be successful both academically and socially then students who develop patterns of poor attendance.
Every child between the ages of 6 to 18 has the right and the obligation to attend school. The LAUSD is committed to the development of programs and practices that foster and encourage both the enrollement and the regular, daily attendance of all students who are subject to the State's compulsory school attendance laws. The parents or guardians of each student have the responsibilty to enroll their child(ren) in school and to send them to school on a daily basis on time.
