We disenroll for an absence over 10 consecutive days as well. It is a state rule, not local. Exceptions and arrangements areade for medically necessary absences.

We have state policies governing absences of over 9 days...excessive absences affect test scores, funding, student achievement, school culture...most of my school's extended absences involve long family vacations. I had a student miss nearly a month last year due to overseas travel. While I'm sure he had many great experiences and learned 'life lessons' during his absence, a teacher can not possibly make up for the loss of such a large chunk of instructional time once a child returns. We do what we can.

I'm guessing this policy went into effect around 2005-2007?

Since I was in HS then and that is when my district changed from 25 absences allowed a year to 10 every two marking periods.

That might also be why my district freaked out when my neurologist told them I had to be out for the remainder of the 2006 school year after their nurse jeopardized my health.
