Compulsory school attendance

In Bavaria, there is a general obligation to attend school in accordance with Art. 35ff of the Bavarian Education and Teaching Act. If parents or students of legal age do not fulfill this obligation, administrative offence proceedings will be initiated.

Parents and students also have a number of duties to cooperate in fulfilling the obligation to attend school: as parents, for example, to register for attendance at school and to ensure regular attendance at classes. As a person obliged to attend school, participation in lessons, etc. If these duties to cooperate are violated, administrative offence proceedings may be initiated. If the constituent elements are fulfilled, a fine may be imposed.
