Students may miss up to 2 days, but one minute more (such as a tardy) will result in dropping the student from the course.
1 full class missed = 3 hours, 5 minutes absence
Tardy 1-15 minutes = 15 minutes absence
Tardy 16-30 minutes = 30 minutes absence
Tardy 31-45 minutes = 45 minutes absence
Tardy 46-60 minutes = 60 minutes absence
Students may miss 2 class meetings, or 3 hours of scheduled class time, but one minute more (such as a tardy) will result in dropping the student from the course.
2 class missed = 3 hours of absence
Frequently Asked Questions:
What if a student needs to miss a day of school due to an emergency or pre-scheduled appointment? Students may miss a total of 2 class days, whether it is a few minutes from each day, or all in one lump sum. Students are required to be physically present in class for a certain number of hours to ensure quality instruction and learning. In order to receive credit for a class, the student may only miss up to 2 total school days of a given session. Keep in mind, that a tardy or absences (regardless of how many minutes the student is late) is rounded up to the nearest 15-minute increment. That means if a student is 20 minutes late, the student will be counted as being absent for 30 minutes. To ensure a student is not dropped and continues to work towards credit recovery in summer school, we encourage all students to attend the entire session without tardies or absences.
What if my student needs to miss for court purposes or a family emergency? Unfortunately, no exceptions can be made due to the requirements of physical seat time in a given course in order to receive credit.
How do I know how much time my student has missed? You or your student may contact the teacher directly or speak with the attendance clerk. It is common for students to ask on a daily basis for those with frequent absences or tardies.
What if I wasn't enrolled into a class until the 2nd or 3rd day? Unfortunately, no exceptions can be made due to the requirements of physical seat time in a given course in order to receive credit.
