The Compulsory School Attendance Law of the State of Washington (Ch.28A.27RCW) requires that all parents shall cause their children to attend school full time when school is in session.
After 10 days of absence in one trimester, a parent conference will be held to determine what the affects of continued absence from school will have on the continued progress of the student. If absence is the result of continued illness, evi- dence from the doctor will be required. Students who miss too much school, even with a medical excuse, may be retained.
Students who are experiencing difficulties due to maturation or receive an ―F average in two or more core subjects may be retained or will be required to fulfill requirements for subject area during the summer.
Archdiocesan policy requires parent/guardian notification at least three months before the end of the school year that retention is a possibility. Documentation signed by a parent/guardian will be kept on file if a student is promoted against school’s recommendations.
