Attendance, Make Up Work, and New Grading Scale

UNEXCUSED ABSENCES

Absences lacking the appropriate supporting documentation will be deemed UNEXCUSED. Supporting documentation will not be accepted after 3 school days upon the student's return to school. Excessive unexcused absences from school, may result in a loss of academic credit and, or a referral to legal authorities.

**For students of driving age, excessive unexcused absences, including check-ins and check-outs, will result in suspension of driving privileges.

5th unexcused absence will result in SUSPENSION of driving privileges for 9 weeks.

8th unexcused absence will result in SUSPENSION of driving privileges for 18 weeks.

The student whose absence is unexcused is NOT entitled to make up the graded work they missed. If the daily or test grade is recorded on the day of the absence, the student whose absence is unexcused, receives a ZERO for the grade. If no grade is recorded for other students, no grade will be recorded for the student who is absent.

MAKE-UP WORK

Students have three school days to bring in a written excuse for an absence, when they return to school.

FOR GRADES K - 5
For either excused or unexcused absences, Teachers will make available any missed work to students and or parents. It should be completed by the student and returned to the teacher by the end of the 5th school day following the absence. All work will be accepted, graded, and the grade earned posted into the gradebook.

FOR GRADES 6 - 12
EXCUSED ABSENCES:
It is the responsibility of the student to contact the teacher to arrange for all make up work. Students are permitted 5 school days to complete and submit their make up work. Work is due before the end of the 5th day. Submitted work is accepted, graded and posted into the gradebook. Unsubmitted work will earn a 0%.

UNEXCUSED ABSENCES:
The student whose absence is unexcused is NOT entitled to make up graded work missed. If a daily or test grade is recorded on the day of the absence, the student receives a ZERO for a grade. If no grade is recorded for other students, no grade will be recorded for the student who was absent.

Deputy Lewter called the central office for clarity on the new attendance policy. Students are allowed 5 PARENT NOTES PER SEMESTER for illness any absences after 5 that semester will be unexcused unless its a doctor's note. 

* Students that  accrue 5 unexcused absences will be prohibited from driving on campus for 9 weeks. On the 8th unexcused absence students will be prohibited from driving on campus for 18 weeks.

* Check-in  and check outs  will count if a full day of instruction is missed. For example if a student checks out @ 9:30 or in at 12:00 this will count as an  unexcused absence unless they have a valid excuse.

NEW GRADING SCALE

The new grading scale is as follows:

90 - 100  A Excellent
80 - 89   B Good
70 - 79   C Average
60 - 69   D Poor/Unsatisfactory
