Each school should make a concerted effort to assist in identifying missing children using the following guidelines.
A. Student Absence
A parent must notify the school on the day a student is to be absent unless previous notification has been given
in accordance with school procedure for reporting absences. If such notification is not received, the principal
should notify by telephone or in writing the student's parents, guardian, or legal custodian of a child's absence.
The parent is responsible for providing the school with current home and/or work telephone numbers and to
notify the school of any change in the above information.
B. Missing Child Investigations
School personnel are required by law to provide law enforcement officials access to a student's record when
conducting a missing child investigation, providing they have the permission of the parent.
C. Pictures For Identification
District personnel, authorized to enter into contracts for the taking of student pictures, will request the
photographer to provide, free of cost to the school, a photograph of each student for identification purposes.
D. Enrollment Of New Students
A student seeking entry into a District school must comply with admission requirements specified in AG 5111.
