Following the late ruling of the |
State Department of Public Instruc- |
tion on attendance in the public |
school it will be quite imperative for |
every school district to rigidly enforce |
the law.
Failure on the part of any district
to rigidly enforce the Compulsory At- |
tendance Law will mean that such dis-
trict will forfeit its quota of state ap-
propriation. :
Last year several school districts
thus forfeited their appropriation
amounting to thousands of dollars.
If a child has been illegally absent
for three days and due notice has been
served, the person having control of
said child is then subject to arrest
witheut further nocice as soon as the
child is again illegally absent from
school for a single session.
The same requirements will be ob-
t | served relative to vaccination of pupils
as in former years.
