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. Log into your Waterford Google Account and click the Google Attendance Appeals form link below.  All attendance appeals are now done online through this Google Form.
  2. On the form, you must include dates of absences, reason for the absences, and the reason credit should be restored.  Please submit any documentation for your absences to Ms. Christian at [email protected]. Documentation will help support your appeal.
  3. The Attendance Appeals Committee will 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
  4. The school counselors are part of the committee, so it is important to connect with your counselor about your absences if you have not already done so.  The counselors are at the appeals meetings to advocate on the student’s behalf. 
  5. The counselor notifies the student about the appeal committee’s decision.
