Student Attendance/School Funding


Welcome back to school 2011 2012

Schools are funded based on the number of students that attend the 20days after Labor Day. It is very important that the students attend school.


Welcome back to school 2011 2012

Alabama Law places the responsibility for regular attendance upon the parent/guardian. If a student is absent a written note or e-mail must be sent within three days after the student returns to school.


Welcome back to school 2011 2012

The complete attendance law including excused and unexcused absences is located in our Elmore County Code of Conduct. A copy of this book is distributed to every parent the first week of school.
