Las Vegas, NV asked in Education Law for Colorado

Q: Moving without telling school?

I am moving in two weeks back to my home state. I was wondering if there's any repercussions for not informing the school that I am leaving? I am already 18, will NOT be living with my parents, and will sign up for online school when I get back to my home state. The state that I live in now is Colorado, and will be moving back to Nevada

A: Absent a court mandated reporting, you are generally not required to notify the school. However, it may be advisable since you will likely want to transfer your records to a new school. Truancy laws do not normally apply to adults (18 and over) unless a rare exception applies, so there should be no legal ramifications for leaving school in Colorado (and transferring and/or deciding to take the GED).
