Information About Absences

Ruby Drive Elementary is dedicated to the success of all students and we want to support all families as they work on having their students at school on time every day.  We appreciate their hard work and with our partnership we will insure the success of all Ruby Drive students.

Our district's Strategic Plan 4.4 addresses attendance as part of our Safe and Respectful Environment Focus area.  This is the latest State of California information about absences.


In California, a student is truant if he/she is absent or tardy by more than 30 minutes without a valid excuse on 3 occasions in a school year.

Habitual Truancy

A student is habitually truant if he/she is absent without a valid excuse for 5 days in a school year.

Chronic Truancy

A student is chronically truant if he/she is absent without a valid excuse for at least 10% of the school year.

Chronic Absence

In California, chronic absence is defined as being absent for any reason (excused or unexcused) for at least 10% of the school year. Thus, in a 175- or 180-day school year, a student who misses 18 days of school or more is chronically absent.
