***STUDENTS WILL NOT BE CALLED OUT OF CLASS AFTER 3:50 P.M. UNLESS IT IS AN EMERGENCY***
Information regarding Credits denied due to absences:
Texas Education Code (TEC 25.092) provides that “(a) Except as provided by this section, a student in any grade level from kindergarten through grade 12 may not be given credit or a final grade for a class unless the student is in attendance for at least 90 percent of the days the class is offered.” All absences, whether excused or unexcused, must be considered in determining whether a student has attended the required percentage of days.
In accordance with state statute, a student MAY not be awarded credit for a course if they have absences totaling more than 10% of class days for a course. While reviewing your student’s report card, please notice the column indicating credits. If your student passed a class but received no credit, it could be related to excessive absences.
Per state law, parent notes do not excuse the 90% rule. However, state law allows provisions for regaining lost credit through building-level attendance review committees and administrative review. For further understanding, please see pages 27 and 28 of the 2016-2017 Student and Parent Handbook. Please contact your student’s assistant principal if you have questions and/or concerns regarding credit recovery.
