MAS Attendance Policy

MAS Attendance Policy

Hello Milan Area Schools Families,


Milan Area Schools wants to inform our students and families that we will be implementing a new/updated attendance policy.  The policy implementation will begin on August 28, 2023, the first day of the 2023-2024 school.  


The policy was developed by the district in conjunction with agencies from Monroe and Washtenaw Counties.


While Milan Area Schools experiences good daily student attendance on average, some of our students do meet the state’s definition of being chronically absent.  Some of our students also meet the state’s definition of being truant.  Excessive absences affect a student’s ability to be successful in school.


Important information about student attendance is included in the the “Milan Area Schools Attendance Policy”.  


The policy includes:

  • The Michigan Compulsory Attendance Law
  • Definitions of Chronically Absent and Truant
  • Definitions of Excused and Unexcused Absences
  • Definitions of Late Arrivals, Early Pick-Ups, and Tardies
  • Specific Actions that Will be Taken at 8, 15, and 20 Unexcused Absences
  • Milan Area Schools Drop Policy


Thank you for taking the time to review this important document.  It is imperative that your students attend school regularly.


Thank You,

Bryan Girbach
