Parents in the Panhandle may face jail time if their children continue to skip school.

Officials in Escambia County are weighing a tough new penalty that says if children have 10 unexcused absences in 90 calendar days, their parents would be put behind bars.

Officials said children who miss that much school put their entire futures in jeopardy.

Unexcused = parents didn't inform the school beforehand that the kid wouldn't be in school, or didn't have a doctor's note.
Actually, after a certain amount of absences even with a note its considered an unexcused absence. When my dad was on his last legs(Stomach cancer) I was a freshman in high school. Well after all of the surgeries and everything else I was out of excusable absences, even with my moms notes so I had four unexcused absences on my record. My dad died later that week and I had to serve an in-school suspension for the next two weeks. Makes sense doesn't it?:action-sm
