Families First Online Policy Manual

School Attendance




Table of Contents


The Families First school attendance requirement and penalties must be explained to the applicant/recipient at the time that the Personal Responsibility Plan is presented to him/her.


The caseworker will address and verify school attendance at:


        Each application when the Personal Responsibility Plan is signed.


        The annual renewal.


If the application/renewal occurs during a regular school break and consequently the child is not currently enrolled in school, the caretaker/eligible adult must agree to ensure that the child is enrolled and attending school during the next regular session.


The Personal Responsibility Plan in the eligibility and case management system will include school enrollment as an activity with an expected completion date.
