Absence Rule: A student in grades 9-12 missing 11 days or more in a year class for any reason other than a principal-approved absence will receive a grade of “F” for the course based on CMS Regulation JHBB-R.
Recovery Program: A student in grades 9-12 missing 11 days or more per class should participate in the school-based Recovery Program available at each high school. Students may recover absences by class during the Extended Day Program, Saturday Academy or with an individual teacher. Students will need to recover time by course under the supervision of a licensed staff member. Students must recover excess absences “hour-for-hour” in order to officially recover each class absence. Students with excessive absences who have a passing grade in a class and who are unable to recover all absences for that class may submit
a written appeal to the school’s Attendance Appeal Committee.
The Attendance Appeal Committee will evaluate the student’s appeal based on grades, participation in the Recovery Program and teacher recommendation. A parent who disagrees with the decision of the
Attendance Appeal Committee may appeal to the principal.
