ATTENDANCE & LOSS OF CREDITS DUE TO UNEXCUSED ABSENCES

Students are allowed 3 unexcused absences per term in meeting our school wide expectations.  A student who accumulates more than 6 unexcused absences in a semester will fail all ½ year credited courses or any class and will receive an attendance failure and an “AF” (attendance failure) on the report card. A student who accumulates more than 12 unexcused absences in a year will fail all courses or any class and will receive an attendance failure and an “AF” (attendance failure) on the report card. Any student who earns an academic failure with a numerical average of less than 59% will receive the lower average and an “F.” When a student exceeds 3 days, he/she may use the ‘buy back option,’ One Buy Back is equal to one day excused.

Loss of credit may result in the following instances:                                                                       
*5 credit course: more than 12 unexcused absences                                                                                      
*2.5 credit course: more than 6 unexcused absences
