Dear Parents and Guardians:
Regular attendance at school is important for your child’s success in learning and making progress toward graduation. Attendance at school is not only important; it is also a state law.
Student absenteeism can lead to low academic achievement, dropping out of school, delinquency and gang involvement. The compulsory education law (N.J.S.A. 18A:38-28 through 31) requires all children between the ages of 6-16 to attend school.

New Jersey school districts, charter schools and renaissance school projects are required by statute (N.J.S.A. 18A: 7C-6.6) to annually notify parents or guardians by October 1 or within 30 days of any statewide student assessment or commercially developed standardized assessment that will be administered over the course of the school year.
