Second: The attendance policy has been changed. 
Attendance
Eighth absence per semester: The student and parents will be informed that the student has been placed on probation status and that no credit may be assigned in that class if the student misses one more time. The student can make up additional absences by attending Saturday detention and or after school detention on a 1:1 ratio. For example: if a student misses first period 9 times they must make up one hour during out of school detention. If a student misses 9 days (all 7 academic periods) they must make up 7 hours during out of school detentions. Failure to make up time will result in receiving no credit. No credit will be indicated on the student’s report card and subsequently no credit will be recorded on the permanent transcript. 


No credit appeal: The student must notify the principal of their intent to appeal their no credit status before the end of the semester. An appeals committee will be formed by the principal consisting of the principal and up to four faculty members. The committee and the student will meet within 10 days after the end of the semester. The student is advised that the parent/guardian should be present at the meeting. The student will be responsible to present all information to justify why credit should be awarded. If semester credit is denied the parents may appeal to the superintendent by scheduling a meeting within five days of the decision.
