As educators, we all recognize the relationship between daily school attendance, school climate, student performance, graduation, and habits in the workplace. We also know that the amount of time actually spent in class is a good measure of student access to an education. Each tardy or absence means a student has lost an opportunity to learn.

In order to address truancy and attendance, as well as school climate, Georgia state law (HB 763) now requires that communities and schools work together to address school climate and truancy through the recommendations of their local Student Attendance and School Climate Committee. 

The following supporting documents were created to assist local Student Protocol Committees as they address the underlying causes and local solutions to student truancy.
