AGO 1981 No. 20 >  November 24, 1981
DISTRICTS - SCHOOLS - STUDENTS - STATE FUNDING
EARLY RELEASE OF GRADUATING SENIORS (1) RCW 28A.58.754(5), as amended by § 1, chapter 250, Laws of 1979, 1st Ex. Sess., permits a school district to conduct its graduation exercises five days prior to the end of the normal 180-day school year and then release the graduating seniors from any further school attendance requirement.(2) Even if a school district elects not actually to conduct graduation exercises five days prior to the end of the 180-day school year, the district may nevertheless simply release all of its graduating seniors from any further requirement of class attendance during the five‑day period and is not, instead, required to operate some form of noninstructional program (for students wishing to participate) for which attendance records are to be maintained.
