Virginia Beach, VA asked in Education Law for New Jersey

Q: I missed 40 days of school and live in New Jersey and would like to know how I can make my school pass me

My school has a rule that you can't miss more than 12 days unexcused or you fail. I would like to know where this stands on a legal level. These absences include days when I was marked absent but was present and if I were late to school 4 times would make an absence. I would like to know of any legal loopholes to get me out of this. If a certain amount of hours is required rather than amount of days or if I can bypass school rules with state regulations. I wish to pass this grade with my class
