Attendance officers


The principal teacher of the Indian schools on each reservation shall supervise the enforcement of this article within said reservation and shall appoint, subject to the approval of the commissioner of education, and remove at pleasure such number of attendance officers as the commissioner of education shall deem necessary, whose jurisdictions shall extend over all school districts on the reservation for which they shall be appointed. Such principal teachers are also vested with the same power and authority as the attendance officers appointed by them.


If the education of Indian children of the reservation shall be provided pursuant to the provisions of subdivision two of § 4101 (Duties of commissioner regarding Indian children)section forty-one hundred one of this chapter, the attendance officer or officers of the school district providing such education shall have jurisdiction over all Indian children on the reservation.

The commissioner of education may appoint and remove at pleasure such attendance officers as he shall deem necessary, who shall have jurisdiction over all children other than Indian children on the reservation for which they shall be appointed. Such attendance officers shall receive such sum per day or part thereof as shall be fixed by the commissioner of education for each day or part thereof necessarily employed as such attendance officers. Compensation of attendance officers herein provided for shall be audited by the commissioner of education and paid in the same manner as other expenses incurred pursuant to this article.
