Anderson, SC asked in Education Law for Georgia

Q: Advice on truency situation with 15 yr.

My husband is in jail on a probation violation for truancy. I served from jan 2019 to june 2019 for the same problem. we send our kids to school. Our daughter who turned 15 last week has 18 unexcused absences. I got a list of these after I personally reported her for skipping. The days i went to and reported are still marked UA the only reason any referrals was written was she wasn't in class when i went to talk to the school, she was found in the locker room with 3 other girls nothing was put on her attendance about days i reported. when you look back she doesn't skip whole days. She will skip 1st go to 2cd and 3rd and skip 4th. Patterns similar to this. I guess sitting in the bathroom all day gets boring. If we put our kid on the bus, they go to school and skip classes during the day but stay at school and bring the bus home. How can we be charged with our child not going to school? We put our children in the schools care, there has to be something that can fix this
