Truancy Policy

 

Truancies are unexcused absenses for all or part of a school day. Because students are required by law to attend all classes to which they have been assigned, unexcused or unauthorized absences from school, individual classes, before or after school assignments such as detention or classroom make-up, are considered truancies. It is illegal to be truant in Nevada (NRS 392.210). In addition, students who have 3 or more truancies are considered habitual truants (NRS 392.140 [1]. The following Truancy Review Board process of notification, consultation and consequences is designed to curtail truancy.

1st Truancy:
Student will have a conference with the site administrator, counselor, or attendance secretary.

2nd Truancy:
Student will have a conference with the site administrator, counselor, or attendance secretary. Disciplinary action is possible.

3rd Truancy:
Student will be considered "Habitual Truant" per NRS 392.140. Student will receive in-school suspension, and parents will be notified by certified mail of the truancy and provided a copy of the policy with notice that the next truancy will require their attendance at a truancy review hearing.

4th Truancy:
Upon the 4th truancy, parents will be notified through the Douglas County School District's Attendance officer by certified mail of the time and place of their Truancy Review Hearing. The Truancy Review Board will have the latitude to:
--Develop a performance contract
--Recommend a $100 fine
--Recommend suspension of the student's driver's license for 30 days
--Recommend probation
