    is excused under this subsection may not be penalized for that

    absence and shall be counted as if the student attended school for

    purposes of calculating the average daily attendance of students in

    the school district. A student whose absence is excused under this

    subsection shall be allowed a reasonable time to make up school work

    missed on those days. If the student satisfactorily completes the

    school work, the day of absence shall be counted as a day of

    compulsory attendance.

    § 25.092. MINIMUM ATTENDANCE FOR CLASS CREDIT. (a)

    Except as provided by this section, a student may not be given

    credit for a class unless the student is in attendance for at least

    90 percent of the days the class is offered.

    (b) The board of trustees of each school district shall

    appoint one or more attendance committees to hear petitions for

    class credit by students who are in attendance fewer than the number

    of days required under Subsection (a). Classroom teachers shall

    comprise a majority of the membership of the committee. A committee

    may give class credit to a student because of extenuating

    circumstances. Each board of trustees shall establish guidelines

    to determine what constitutes extenuating circumstances and shall

    adopt policies establishing alternative ways for students to make

    up work or regain credit lost because of absences. The alternative

    ways must include at least one option that does not require a

    student to pay a fee authorized under Section 11.158(a)(15). A

    certified public school employee may not be assigned additional

    instructional duties as a result of this section outside of the

    regular workday unless the employee is compensated for the duties

    at a reasonable rate of pay.

    (c) A member of an attendance committee is not personally

    liable for any act or omission arising out of duties as a member of

    an attendance committee.

    (d) If a student is denied credit for a class by an

    attendance committee, the student may appeal the decision to the

    board of trustees. The decision of the board may be appealed by

    trial de novo to the district court of the county in which the

    school district's central administrative office is located.

    (e) This section does not affect the provision of Section

    25.087(b) regarding a student's excused absence from school to

    observe religious holy days.

    (f) The availability of the option developed under

    Subsection (b) must be substantially the same as the availability

    of the educational program developed under Section 11.158(a)(15).

    § 25.093. PARENT CONTRIBUTING TO NONATTENDANCE. (a) If a

    warning is issued as required by Section 25.095(a), the parent with

    criminal negligence fails to require the child to attend school as

    required by law, and the child has absences for the amount of time

    specified under Section 25.094, the parent commits an offense.

    (b) The attendance officer or other appropriate school

    official shall file a complaint against the parent in:

    (1) the constitutional county court of the county in

    which the parent resides or in which the school is located, if the

    county has a population of two million or more;

    (2) a justice court of any precinct in the county in

    which the parent resides or in which the school is located; or

    (3) a municipal court of the municipality in which the

    parent resides or in which the school is located.

    (c) An offense under Subsection (a) is a Class C

    misdemeanor. Each day the child remains out of school may

    constitute a separate offense. Two or more offenses under

    Subsection (a) may be consolidated and prosecuted in a single

    action. If the court orders deferred disposition under Article

    45.051, Code of Criminal Procedure, the court may require the

    defendant to provide personal services to a charitable or

    educational institution as a condition of the deferral.

    (d) A fine collected under this section shall be deposited

    as follows:

    (1) one-half shall be deposited to the credit of the

    operating fund of, as applicable:

    (A) the school district in which the child

    attends school;

    (B) the open-enrollment charter school the child

    attends; or

    (C) the juvenile justice alternative education

    program that the child has been ordered to attend; and

    (2) one-half shall be deposited to the credit of:

    (A) the general fund of the county, if the

    complaint is filed in the justice court or the constitutional

    county court; or

    (B) the general fund of the municipality, if the

    complaint is filed in municipal court.

    (e) At the trial of any person charged with violating this

    section, the attendance records of the child may be presented in

    court by any authorized employee of the school district or

    open-enrollment charter school, as applicable.

    (f) The court in which a conviction, deferred adjudication,

    or deferred disposition for an offense under Subsection (a) occurs

    may order the defendant to attend a program for parents of students

    with unexcused absences that provides instruction designed to

    assist those parents in identifying problems that contribute to the

    students' unexcused absences and in developing strategies for

    resolving those problems if a program is available.

    (g) If a parent refuses to obey a court order entered under

    this section, the court may punish the parent for contempt of court

    under Section 21.002, Government Code.

    (h) It is an affirmative defense to prosecution for an

    offense under Subsection (a) that one or more of the absences

    required to be proven under Subsection (a) was excused by a school

    official or should be excused by the court. The burden is on the

    defendant to show by a preponderance of the evidence that the

    absence has been or should be excused. A decision by the court to

    excuse an absence for purposes of this section does not affect the

    ability of the school district to determine whether to excuse the

    absence for another purpose.

    (i) In this section, "parent" includes a person standing in

    parental relation.

    § 25.094. FAILURE TO ATTEND SCHOOL. (a) An individual

    commits an offense if the individual:

    (1) is required to attend school under Section 25.085;

    and

    (2) fails to attend school on 10 or more days or parts

    of days within a six-month period in the same school year or on

    three or more days or parts of days within a four-week period.

    (b) An offense under this section may be prosecuted in:

    (1) the constitutional county court of the county in

    which the individual resides or in which the school is located, if

    the county has a population of two million or more;

    (2) a justice court of any precinct in the county in

    which the individual resides or in which the school is located; or

    (3) a municipal court in the municipality in which the

    individual resides or in which the school is located.

    (c) On a finding by the county, justice, or municipal court

    that the individual has committed an offense under Subsection (a)

    or on a finding by a juvenile court in a county with a population of

    less than 100,000 that the individual has engaged in conduct that

    violates Subsection (a), the court may enter an order that includes

    one or more of the requirements listed in Article 45.054, Code of

    Criminal Procedure, as added by Chapter 1514, Acts of the 77th

    Legislature, Regular Session, 2001.

    (d) If the county, justice, or municipal court believes that

    a child has violated an order issued under Subsection (c), the court

    may proceed as authorized by Article 45.050, Code of Criminal

    Procedure.

    (d-1) Pursuant to an order of the county, justice, or

    municipal court based on an affidavit showing probable cause to

    believe that an individual has committed an offense under this

    section, a peace officer may take the individual into custody. A

    peace officer taking an individual into custody under this

    subsection shall:

    (1) promptly notify the individual's parent, guardian,

    or custodian of the officer's action and the reason for that action;

    and

    (2) without unnecessary delay:

    (A) release the individual to the individual's

    parent, guardian, or custodian or to another responsible adult, if

    the person promises to bring the individual to the county, justice,

    or municipal court as requested by the court; or

    (B) bring the individual to a county, justice, or

    municipal court with venue over the offense.

    (e) An offense under this section is a Class C misdemeanor.

    (f) It is an affirmative defense to prosecution under this

    section that one or more of the absences required to be proven under

    Subsection (a) were excused by a school official or by the court or

    that one or more of the absences were involuntary, but only if there

    is an insufficient number of unexcused or voluntary absences

    remaining to constitute an offense under this section. The burden

    is on the defendant to show by a preponderance of the evidence that

    the absence has been excused or that the absence was involuntary. A

    decision by the court to excuse an absence for purposes of this

    section does not affect the ability of the school district to

    determine whether to excuse the absence for another purpose.

    (g) It is an affirmative defense to prosecution under this

    section that one or more of the absences required to be proven under

    Subsection (a) was involuntary. The burden is on the defendant to

    show by a preponderance of the evidence that the absence was

    involuntary.

    absent from school on 10 or more days or parts of days within a

    six-month period in the same school year or on three or more days or

    student's school attendance and require the student to attend

    school; and

    (B) the parent is subject to prosecution under

    Section 25.093; and

    (2) request a conference between school officials and

    the parent to discuss the absences.

    (c) The fact that a parent did not receive a notice under

    Subsection (a) or (b) does not create a defense to prosecution under

    Section 25.093 or 25.094.

    (d) In this section, "parent" includes a person standing in

    SUBTITLE E. STUDENTS AND PARENTS

    CHAPTER 25. ADMISSION, TRANSFER, AND ATTENDANCE

    SUBCHAPTER A. ADMISSION AND ENROLLMENT

    SUBCHAPTER C. OPERATION OF SCHOOLS AND SCHOOL ATTENDANCE

     

    ASSIGNMENTS AND TRANSFERS IN DISCRETION OF GOVERNING BOARD

    In conformity with this subchapter, the board of

    trustees of a school district or the board of county school trustees

    or a school employee designated by the board may assign and transfer

    any student from one school facility or classroom to another within

    its jurisdiction.

     

    BASIS FOR ASSIGNMENT OR TRANSFER

    The board of trustees of a school district, the board of county school trustees,

    or the person acting for the board must make the decision concerning

    the assignment or transfer of a student on an individual basis and

    may not consider as a factor in its decision any matter relating to

    the national origin of the student or the student's ancestral

    language.

     

    ASSIGNMENT OR TRANSFER ON PETITION OF PARENT

    The parent or person standing in parental relation to any

    student may by petition in writing either:

     

    (1) request the assignment or transfer of the student

    to a designated school or to a school to be designated by the board;

    or

     

    (2) file objections to the assignment of the student

    to the school to which the student has been assigned.

     

     

     

    HEARING; ACTION ON PETITION; APPEAL

     

     

    (a) On receiving a petition under Section 25.033, the board of trustees of

    the school district or the board of county school trustees shall:

          (1) if a hearing is not requested, act on the petition

         not later than the 30th day after the date the petition is submitted

         and notify the petitioner of the board's conclusion; or

         (2) if a hearing is requested, designate a time and

          place for holding a hearing not later than the 30th day after the

         date the petition is submitted.

    (b) If a hearing is requested, it shall be conducted by the

    board in compliance with this section.

    (c) The petitioner may present evidence relevant to the

    individual student.

    (d) The board may conduct investigations as to the objection

    or request, examine any student involved, and employ agents,

    professional or otherwise, for the purpose of examinations and

    investigations.

    (e) The board must grant the request made in the petition

    unless the board determines that there is a reasonable basis for

    denying the request. The decision of the board, either with or

    without hearing, is final unless the student, or the parent,

    guardian, or custodian of the student as next friend, files

    exception to the decision of the board as constituting a denial of

    any right of the student guaranteed under the United States

    Constitution.

    (f) If an exception is filed under Subsection (e), the board

    may reconsider its decision. If the board has not ruled on the

    exception before the 16th day after the date of the filing, the

    exception is considered overruled. If the exception is overruled,

    an appeal of the board's decision may be filed in the district court

    of the county in which the board is located. The petition must

         (1) be filed not later than the 30th day after the date

         of the board's final decision; and

         (2) state the facts relevant to the student that

         relate to the alleged denial of the student's rights under the

         United States Constitution.

     

     

     

     

    TRANSFERS BETWEEN DISTRICTS OR COUNTIES

    The boards of trustees of two or more adjoining school districts or the

    boards of county school trustees of two or more adjoining counties

    may, by agreement and in accordance with Sections 25.032, 25.033,

    and 25.034, arrange for the transfer and assignment of any student

    from the jurisdiction of one board to that of another. In the case

    of the transfer and assignment of a student under this section, the

    participating governing boards shall also agree to the transfer of

    school funds or other payments proportionate to the transfer of

    attendance.

    (a) Any child, other than

    a high school graduate, who is younger than 21 years of age and

    the child jointly approve and timely agree in writing to the

    transfer.

    (b) A transfer agreement under this section shall be filed

    and preserved as a receiving district record for audit purposes of

    the agency.

     

    TRANSFER TO DISTRICT OF BORDERING STATE

    state and county available school funds paid to the school district

    of the contiguous state and may have additional tuition, if

    necessary, paid by the district of the child's residence on terms

    agreed on by the trustees of the receiving district and the trustees

    of the residence district.
