Here is the story two identical twins are going to a new school, but they find out only of them is really registered. So they come up with the idea that one them skips school each day. After a while they get bored and the school find out. At the book they don't get trouble, because the parent threaten to sue the school. I would like to know what would really happen in this situation, and if the parent would even have grounds to sue. Thanks.

Most policies in the US school systems are based on previous (and threatened) lawsuits.
Bear in mind, we're cops and that's all civil stuff. You need to take that question to a education forum, we never deal with things like that.

I would have to ask: "Threatens to sue the school for WHAT?"
It is the responsibility of the parent to ensure that all their kids are registered for school. If the school has no way to know that both kids are supposed to be there, I don't see where they did anything wrong.
