If students are absent in excess of a specified number of times during a semester, they may lose credit for a course they are taking. Please review the link below for opportunities to make up time for excessive absences.


Information you need to know: 

MUSTANGS WE WANT YOU HERE! (WWYH)

By State Law, students are supposed to be in class 90% of the time. 

How do you prevent losing credit due to attendance? 
1. WWYH Come to school ( this is the best way!) 
2. If you KNOW you've been absent more than 9 times in any of your class periods, you must come to seat time to make up the time you have missed. 

For Attendance For Credit (90% - seat-time)

- For Attendance For Credit, semester 1 (SM1) at 4 absences the letter will generate a warning and then at 9 absences the letter will generate stating loss of credit.

- Seat-time should be offered at the 4 absences or first letter.
