I am an education attorney. Truancy laws require regular school attendance, unless the child can be proven to be emancipated or for other explanable extraordinary circumstances. You will need to discuss the facts in more detail for a more appropriate response. Call 303-409-702. This is not legal advise, as I do not have sufficient information and you have not retained this office by this response.

Education Law
For many families, their first introduction to the legal system comes as they try to protect and enforce the rights of their children to obtain an education. An education law attorney will have experience with a host of school-related legal issues, including the education rights of special-needs children, freedom of speech issues, anti-bullying and harassment statutes, and student discipline issues. Lawyers and law firms that practice education law will also work with teachers and schools, including colleges and universities.
