Absence Policy

Absence Policy: As defined in the Arizona State law, absences are considered excessive when the number of absent days exceeds 10% of the number of days required. Thus, any student absent a combined total of 18 days, consecutive or nonconsecutive, excused or unexcused is seen as truant and excessive. Sun Valley Charter School will report students with excessive absences to a truancy officer and/or expel them from school, following due process procedures (ARS 15-803) The steps are as follows: 1. Student and parent given notice of absence 2. Student and parent given opportunity to respond 3. Student and parent informed of consequences
