Truancy Students must be in class at all times. Skipping on campus is automatic full day of ISS. Students may NOT leave campus without parent/guardian and a principal’s permission. If a student needs to leave for ANY reason, they must see their AP (lunch is not a valid reason to leave campus). If students are caught off-campus during school hours – they are truant and will be placed in ISS for 2 full days.
Absences If you have a note to excuse an absence, you must turn it in to Mrs. Vargas in the attendance office within 10 days of the absence or it will remain unexcused. Frequent Unexcused/Excused Absences may result in: Loss of credit for classes (Credit is lost after 9 absences) Retention in current grade Saturday Clock Hours: Failure to attend when on probation= contempt of court Truancy filing with the Courts---up to $200 fine plus court costs Absences are counted PER class. Medical Absences- You must attend school a portion of the day and return with a signed statement from the health care professional in order for it to be coded as a medical absence. Full day absences for sickness are not considered medical by district policy. Once a six weeks ends, absences CANNOT be corrected.
Attendance and Exemptions Students must attend class regularly. Students that accrue more than nine absences in a course will be referred to the Fort Bend Court System for truancy. Excessive absences (excused or unexcused) will eliminate students from potential exemption status. 18 year old students are NOT automatically their own legal guardian! The same rules and guidelines that apply to everyone under the age of 18 also apply to students over the age of 18. By law, the school must file truancy on all enrolled students that accrue nine absences, regardless of age. Even 18 year old students MAY NOT leave campus without the permission of your AP.
Tardy calculator When the tardy bell rings, all students in the hallway will report to the Tardy Calculator location (G105 or B Hallway Attendance) to receive their discipline notice. The system is also designed to call parents to alert them to the tardy and the pending consequence. Tardies will generate discipline referrals. Warnings will count toward exemptions this school year. Forgery of Tardy Calculator passes will result in 5 full days of ISS. Tardies will count for lunch, advisory and exams.
