5000.01 | Truancy

Absence without a legitimate excuse shall be deemed truancy. A habitual truant is any pupil who repeatedly has violated the attendance regulations established by the Board of Trustees or other governing body operating the school attended. A child of compulsory school age may also be considered an habitual truant if the child's parents or guardians, or any of them, have failed or refused to cause such a child to be instructed as provided in Idaho Code 33-202.
