Purpose of House Bill 410 - Ohio State Law

It is important for every student in Ohio to attend school every day.  Research shows that missing too much school has long-term negative effects on students, such as lower academic achievement and adversely impacting graduation rates.  


Parents please review the following information below.  The most important element as a parent is to make sure you:

  1. Ensure your student is punctual, not tardy, and having consistent attendance.

  2. In the case of an absence, supply written documentation explaining the purpose of the absence.

  3. Attendance directly impacts a school district’s report card from the Ohio Department of Education

  4. Understand that this state policy is meant to be supportive in nature rather than punitive.


Also, if your student is deemed excessively absent or habitually truant, you may receive letters, phone calls, or be asked to come to meetings to provide solutions and support the attendance needs of a student.

Thank you,

Mr. Simko
