Request for Legal Absence from School for Student Travel

 
Circumstances sometimes necessitate absence from school for reasons other than sickness or death in the family.


As defined in the Tredyffrin/Easttown School District Regulation 5771, legal absence may be granted for student educational travel by the respective building principal for absences up to five (5) school days per year.

 

Any requests for absences for a longer duration may be granted by the Superintendent of Schools after the recommendation of the principal.

 

Approval may be granted pending review of the individual request, the specific educational value of the trip, and the student’s progress and attitude.

 

The principal will consult with the student’s teachers to evaluate these factors.

 

Requests for such long-term absences shall be received the the building principal two (2) weeks prior to the absence.
