Students are required to attend school before and after an AP test.  In order for your student’s absence during the AP test to be considered excused and marked accordingly (ACT) they must be present in the class following a morning AP exam or present in class before their afternoon AP exam. California’s compulsory education laws require children to attend school, with a limited number of specified exceptions. Under state law, a pupil who is tardy or absent for more than 30 minutes during the school day on three occasions in one school year, is considered truant. Any classes missed outside the testing time will be marked as a cut.
