You are hereby notified of the consequences under Georgia law (O.C.G.A. 20-2-690.1) that state what can occur when a student has accumulated 7 or more absences.

Any parent, guardian, or other person residing in this state who has control or charge of a child or children and who shall violate this Code section shall be  guilty of a misdemeanor and, upon conviction thereof, shall be subject to a fine not less than $25.00 and not greater than $100.00, imprisonment not to exceed 30 days, community service, or any combination of such penalties, at  the discretion of the court having jurisdiction. Each day’s absence from school  in violation of this part after the child’s system notifies the parent, guardian, or other person who has control or charge of a child of seven unexcused days absence for a child shall constitute a separate offense.

Above and beyond these consequences under state law, 7 or more unexcused absences will result in a referral to the Student Attendance Review Board as called for in the Commerce City Student Attendance Protocol.  For out-of-district students, students will be withdrawn from Commerce City Schools to attend their home district upon 7 unexcused absences. 

If you have questions concerning your child, please contact the appropriate school.

The principal at CHS will sign off on the final transcript for issuance to students.  If the student qualifying for graduation would like a diploma and one is not currently on file at the high school, the counselor will order diplomas for interested students on a quarterly basis.

State law in Georgia allows intradistrict transfer within our state, but since we are a charter system, we have no option for intradistrict transfers.
