Chapter E

Section 5.0 Attendance

Paragraph 5.2.2 Excessive Absences

Policy Statement:


Attendance Violations


Excessive Absences

  1. If a student has more than three absences in a class period during any term, any subsequent absence is an assumed "S" that would generate an NC (No Credit). Parents must meet with an administrator to create a plan for reformation and to remove the NC mark.
  2. If a student has more than 9 absences during the year (not necessarily consecutive) without written approval of the student's application for "Extenuating Circumstances," the Director will send a letter to the parents outlining that the student has been placed on "Attendance Probation" and a meeting with school administration and/or the governing board may be required. It is important to note that our promotion policy requires a student to attend a minimum number of school days to be promoted to the next grade.
  3. Please note that we are required to remove from our enrollment any student who is absent ten or more consecutive days of school without extenuating circumstances.
