Absence Reporting

SDCCS Student Absence Verification

All absences must be verified by a parent/guardian within 3 school days of the last day of the student’s absence. Absences remaining unverified after 3 school days will be recorded as unexcused. Absences not defined as excused in the CA Education Code Law (Ed. Code 46010, 48205) will be recorded as an unexcused absence. Filling out this form is not an automatic excused absence.
