.08 School Attendance Good Cause Reason Verification
 
(10/01/14 –11/30/14)
When the applicant or participant wishes to claim good cause for noncompliance, assist them in obtaining the necessary documents to establish the claim. These documents include, but are not limited to the following:
 
Attendance records
Documentation from school officials
Birth certificate
Doctor's statement
Probation or court records
 
The participant can claim good cause at any time. When a request for good cause is received, allow the participant ten days from the date of the request to provide verification.
 
When good cause is verified, the participant is exempt from the PRA School Attendance requirements.
 
When the participant does not respond or does not verify good cause, treat any reason for claiming good cause as a valid claim allowing a participant statement as verification. (See School Attendance Good Cause Reasons).
 
NOTE When the participant refuses to comply, take action to sanction or deny the case as appropriate.
