Research shows that students with consistent school attendance have improved academic performance.

The Albuquerque Public School system has implemented a new attendance and truancy program, which is linked to our new computerized attendance program. This program is designed to address excessive absences, whether excused or unexcused.

Parents / Guardians should notify the school daily if their child is absent. Students will be marked excused for the following:

  • Doctor’s Appointments
  • Religious Commitments
  • Death in the Family
  • Illness
  • Family Emergency
  • Diagnostic Testing

All other absences will be considered unexcused. Please be advised the APS policy states the students are allowed no more than 10 unexcused absences per school year. This includes times when children are pulled out of school for vacations. The student and his/her guardian will be referred to the Children’s Court Liaison, if a student’s attendance rate drops below 90% in a grading period. This includes both excused and unexcused absences.
