TEA Legal Annual Letter – Re: Attendance, Admission, Enrollment Records, and Tuition

TEA’s Chief Legal Counsel updates this letter every year and releases it just  prior to the start of the school year.  This “to the administrator addressed” letter summarizes important statutes relating to student attendance, public school admission, enrollment records, and tuition.

Part I of the letter relates to compulsory attendance,
Part II relates to attendance for course credit,
Part III relates to public school admission,
Part IV relates to enrollment records, and
Part V relates to tuition.

This summary will be very helpful as you begin each school year.
