Attendance Matters! District Provides Guidelines

Release Date: 

One of the most important things we can do to support our students’ learning and their continued academic success is to encourage regular attendance. The state of Oregon has defined the expectations for schools, students and parents in the 2015 Oregon Compulsory School Attendance Laws. Pendleton School District continues to support students and families in meeting these regulations. Please review the updated Pendleton School District Absences and Truancy Guidelines  (PDF)
