A Tasmanian couple who has kept their son out of school have avoided a hefty fine.
The couple from Devonport pleaded guilty to failing to ensure their child attended school.
The child has not attended regularly for more than five years but the charge relates to the child having missed 101 school days.
They had argued the Education System was not equipped to manage his severe allergies which could cause life-threatening anaphylaxis.
Devonport Magistrate Melanie Bartlett ordered the couple each pay $2,010.
The maximum penalty for the offence was $48,000.
