Attendance - District Office
Our mission as the District Attendance Office is to motivate, and support our students, families, community, and schools to help increase student attendance, decreasing truancy and further improve the academic quality of all JISD students.
Judson ISD Caring About Reaching Every Student (CARES) Team is ready to help.
Our goal is for all students to be in school everyday. However, we do understand that sometimes that is not possible. If your child is sick and absent please send a parent or doctor note to your child's campus attenance office via email. Campus Attendance Office Emails.
