Parents and Students
According to Board Policy 2310, a student shall be allowed no more than eight (8) absences per semester, excused or unexcused. When a student reaches nine (9) absences in any one class, the student may be denied credit for that class. Absences that could lead to denial of credit if totaling nine would include: oversleeping, family vacation, missing the bus, no ride to school, needed at home, personal business, car trouble, other absences excused by a parent and illness without medical documentation. Absences that would not lead to denial of credit would include hospitalization with documentation, doctor appointment with documentation, counselor and office visits, religious observances, and if a student is sent home by the school nurse. Students will have numerous opportunities to make up their time, as well as frequent notifications of their status before facing denial of credit. Your student can make up the missed time by attending Before / After School Time or Saturday School Time. Click here to sign up for Saturday School. Saturday School is held at Central Office from 8 a.m. - 12 p.m. for all ISD high schools on the dates found here.
Thank you for partnering with us to ensure your student is in class and ready to learn! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact your school counseling team.
