Assembly Bill 1503 – Increases The Time Students May Be Absent For Religious Retreats For Up To One School Day Per Semester
Students between six and 18 years of age are subject to compulsory full-time education, but schools must excuse pupils from school for specified types of absences, including attendance at religious retreats not to exceed four hours per semester.
This bill increases the time excused for attendance at religious retreats to not exceed one school day per semester.
(AB 1503 amends Education Code Section 48205.)
