Applying for a suspension of compulsory education

Description

School attendance is compulsory for all children and young people living in Saxony-Anhalt. For children who reach the age of 6 by 30 June, it begins with the following school year and ends after 12 years. The statutory compulsory education of 12 years is fulfilled by attending a vocational school, unless a general education school is still attended.

Compulsory schooling may be suspended under certain conditions.

The procedure is different.

  • As a school-age mother or father, you must submit an application. If you are still a minor, you will need the consent of your legal guardian.
  • If your child is unable to attend school or attend special education for health reasons, you must submit an application as a parent or guardian.
  • If you are taking part in a vocational preparation training measure or in an introductory qualification according to Book III of the Social Code, you must inform us of this.
  • If you participate in volunteer service due to federal or state regulations, you must notify us.
  • If you attend a vocational school for health professions that are not subject to the Saxony-Anhalt School Act, you must notify us.
  • If you are enrolled at a university, you must submit an application. If you are still a minor, you will need the consent of your legal guardian.
