Findlay High School is making changes to its truancy policy. The Courier reports the school board approved the new rules Monday. Steps have been established for handling students with several unexcused absences. They include sending parents or guardians a letter after two days out of school. Parents could also have to attend a meeting with Hancock County Juvenile Court Judge Kristen Johnson and a high school representative. An attendance case manager will also make sure administrators know about any problems.
If the issues continue after the steps are taken, truancy charges could be filed. The new policy says action can be taken when a student has five unexcused absences in a row, seven unexcused absences in a month, or 12 unexcused absences in a school year.
