Compulsory education is divided into full-time compulsory and compulsory vocational education. Compulsory education is fulfilled by establishing a school relationship with a public school or by attending a substitute school.
Due to the school relationship,

  • obliges pupils to take part in the lessons, to take the planned examinations and to attend other school events that have been declared binding;
  • obliges parents to ensure that pupils take part in lessons and other school events, and
  • obliges trainers, employers and servicemen to encourage those who are obliged to attend vocational schooling.

Anyone who fails to comply with this obligation shall act in an irregular manner.
Refusal to attend school - or school absenteeism and colloquially "tails" - includes all forms of unauthorised absence from school.
As a measure to enforce school attendance, students who do not attend classes for no legitimate reason may be sent to the school in accordance with Section 28 of the School Act. The general rules on the enforcement of administrative acts remain unaffected. In addition, sanctions for non-compliance with compulsory education are possible, for example the imposition of a fine under the Law on Administrative Offences.

Sections 11, 20 to 23, 26, 28, 144 Schleswig-Holstein School Act (School Act - SchulG).
