Student Support Services
To help students become more successful in the educational career, Student Support Services strives to help students and families by supporting their academic and social-emotional well-being.

EVSC Attendance Policy
Regular attendance directly affects student success. School is very hard for students when they miss classes. Students are required by Indiana law to attend school regularly until they are 18 years old. After age 18, students must be regularly attending and earning credits toward a diploma to stay enrolled.

Possible Consequences of Irregular Attendance:
After students miss 10 days, they and their parent(s) may be notified of the need to attend a pre-court conference. At that time, legal notice is given. Students who miss additional days of school after the pre-court conference are required by Indiana law to have a medical statement from a physician or be seen and possibly sent home by the school nurse. Failure to follow this law will result in a referral to Child Protective Services or Juvenile Court, depending upon the circumstances and the age of the student. There can also be a pre-court conference called if the student has missed 5 consecutive days (habitual truancy).Students may have credits denied for excessive truancies. This is not automatic but at the school administrator’s discretion and based on individual circumstances. Continued truancies may also result in loss of a driver’s license or work permit.
