Attendance Questions

What is the Law?
The law states: 25.094. FAILURE TO ATTEND SCHOOL. (a) An individual commits an offense if the individual: (1) is required to attend  school under Section 25.085; and (2) fails to attend school on 10 or more days or parts of days within a six-month period in the same school year or on three or more days or parts of days within a four-week period.
When will I or my child be filed on for truancy?
The law states: 25.0951. SCHOOL DISTRICT COMPLAINT OR REFERRAL FOR FAILURE TO ATTEND SCHOOL. (a) 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, a school district shall: (1) file a complaint against the student or the student's parent or both in a county, justice, or municipal court for an offense  under Section 25.093 or 25.094, as appropriate, or refer the student to a juvenile court in a county with a population of less than 100,000 for conduct  that violates Section 25.094; or (2) refer the student to a juvenile court for  conduct indicating a need for supervision under Section 51.03(b)(2), Family  Code.
What does the 90% rule mean?
The law states: 25.092. MINIMUM ATTENDANCE FOR CLASS CREDIT. (a) Except as provided by this section, a student may not be given credit for a class unless the student is in attendance for at least 90 percent of the days the class is offered. (b) The board of trustees of each school district shall  appoint one or more attendance committees to hear petitions for class credit by students who are in attendance fewer than the number of days required under Subsection (a).
What is an attendance committee?
The law states: Classroom teachers shall comprise a majority of  the membership of the committee. A committee may give class credit to a student because of extenuating circumstances. Each board of trustees shall establish  guidelines to determine what constitutes extenuating circumstances and shall  adopt policies establishing alternative ways for students to make up work or  regain credit lost because of absences.
Our Vision
The  vision of Milford Independent School District (ISD) is that all students will be  challenged, successful, motivated to learn, independent thinkers, and problem  solvers.  Milford ISD envisions a learning facility where students will achieve  academically, explore their interests, grow mentally, morally, and physically  through the school's academic, fine arts, athletic and vocational programs.
