It would not be a legal issue but the policy of the school district. The person should give the situation a little thought and they will realize the absurdity of a student being allowed to write their own excuses for being absent or tardy. Since the student is not in the custody of a parent or legal guardian, he or she will have to bear the consequences of the cited incident and all their actions. It's not the most pleasant part of being an "adult" but it is a reality.

Are you still responsible for a debt if your parents assume responsibility for that debt?

Minors cannot legally contract for a debt. Only their parents/guardians can assume that responsibility. So, your parents ARE responsible. On the other hand, if you are legally an adult and contract for debt - and your parents 'assume' responsibility for it -there would have to be legally binding paperwork naming them as the debtors in lieu. Simply giving their word is not sufficient, and you would remain responsible.

Parents or guardians are legally responsible for you until you are of legal age in your State, so unless your parents or guardians have given their permission, they can refuse to allow it.
