Civic Engagement Absences

Parents of students in grades 7-12 may request one partial-day absence for civic engagement activities, such as legislative visits, awareness walks, nonprofit support, or advocacy efforts.

To do so, parents must submit a prearranged absence form and documentation regarding the student’s civic engagement activity. Requests must be submitted at least three to five days in advance of the absence. Parents should plan for their student’s safety and transportation.

Students must attend class for part of the school day in order to participate and are limited to one opportunity per school year.
