**The Alabama Compulsory School Attendance Act states that your school’s attendance officer is required to notify the District Attorney’s office if your child has 5 or more unexcused absences or is tardy more than 15 times. Once this occurs, criminal proceedings against you and/or your child may begin. If you are prosecuted for failing to require your child to attend school or failing to ensure that the child behaves while at school, you may be jailed for up to one year, and/or fined up to $500. This does not include any attendance that is covered by a note from a doctor on file in the school office.
