Attendance Information and Support

Good attendance


The Butler Area School District Board of Education requires that school-aged pupils enrolled in the District attend school regularly in accordance with the laws of the state. The educational program offered by the District is predicated upon the presence of the pupil and requires continuity of instruction and classroom participation in order for students to achieve academic standards and consistent educational progress.

Parents/Guardians of all children between the ages of six (6) and eighteen (18) are required by the compulsory attendance law to ensure that their children attend an approved educational institution, unless legally excused.

Pennsylvania mandates that we schedule meetings with parents/guardians once a child has three (3) or more unexcused absences.
