What the Expert Says:

The answer to your question is both a state rule and a local school system regulation.  Many states have requirements about attendance in order to pass, and then local school systems set the exact number of days.

Sometimes this is not spelled out in detail, yet there are general guidelines that schools must follow.

I encourage you to call your school principal and/or guidance counselor for more information on attendance requirements.

Best wishes.
