Attendance Appeals Process

Attendance Appeals Process For Students

If a student is absent 7 or more days during a half year course, or 13 or more in a full year class, credit for the class is lost. Students may appeal the loss of credit if they have good reason for the absences and have a passing grade in the class.

To appeal the loss of credit, students must do the following:

  1. Get an appeal form from the counseling office or online
  2. Fill the form out completely, including dates of absences, reason for the absences, and the reason credit should be restored
  3. Bring the form to their counselor and explain why credit should be restored
  4. The counselor brings the appeal case to the CARE Team who review the form and make a decision to restore credit or deny the appeal. In some cases, credit may be held in abeyance pending an improvement in attendance for the remainder of the year
  5. The counselor notifies the student about the CARE Team decision
