Make-Up & Class Drop Policy

Make-Up Policy

Students with excused and/or up to 10 unexcused absences are allowed to receive credit for make-up work as long as they meet the following minimum criteria:  

•On the first day back to a class, students are responsible for requesting make-up assignments. Failure to complete make-up work in the time allowed may place students at risk of not earning class credit.

•After receiving assignments, turn in assignment(s) in a period of time equal to the number of days absent, unless other arrangements have been mutually agreed upon by the student and the teacher. 

•Teachers may need 24 hours from the time of the request to compile assignments.

•It is expected that students will take semester finals on the days that they are scheduled. Students will be permitted to make up finals if they are missed due to an excused absence. Requesting to take a final exam early is discouraged. Approval of such a request will rest with the teacher in consultation with the principal.


Class Drop Policy

State law requires a school to withdraw a student after ten (10) consecutive days of absences, or in the case of excessive truancy, for students who fail to return to school after the school district has exhausted its efforts to keep the student in an educational setting.

Excessive absences, excused or unexcused, will be addressed with an administrator. After efforts have been exhausted to intervene and remedy the situation, an administrator may remove a student from the class as a ‘withdraw failing (WF)’.
