Excessive Absenteeism: HB 410 Requirements

It is important for every student in Ohio to attend school every day. Missing too much school has long-term, negative effects on students, such as lower achievement and graduation rates. To that end, the Ohio General Assembly passed House Bill 410, which supports a preventative approach to excessive absences and truancy. Beginning with the 2017-18 school year, several important changes have taken effect.


  • Absences are now recorded by hour, including tardy occurrences.
  • All instructional time missed counts as an absence. The only time during the school day that does not count as instructional time is a student’s lunch period.
  • A letter will be sent to parent/guardian(s) when a student misses 38 hours in a month or 65 hours in a year, with or without a legitimate excuse*.
  • A student who misses 30 or more consecutive hours,  42 or more hours in a month, or 72 hours in a school year without a legitimate excuse* is considered habitually truant and is referred to an Absence Intervention Team.

*Legitimate excuse = excused absence
