Students are required to attend whenever school is in session to show satisfactory progress. Attendance is retained permanently in the student’s records. There are no excused absences approved by the school. Students are required to make up every hour missed at the current rate per hour. This is normally accomplished between 2:30 PM and 4:00 PM weekdays. School closings for emergency situations are provided for in the curriculum. In the event that a student needs to have his attendance reprinted by the office, there will be a $5.00 charge/page to do this. Please consult the school catalog for additional information.
In addition, if any student, regardless of his status (i.e. active, withdrawn), has any outstanding makeup time prior to entering or being re-scheduled for the last block of instruction (Block 10), that time must be made up prior to the student being scheduled for that block. If the school has to close for any emergency situation, each student will be notified via the Honeywell system that is in place, of this occurrence. The student will also be given additional instructions if needed.
Students who must repeat a subject and who have paid for that repeat will be expected to attend the class at the time it has been rescheduled. If they fail to attend, the subject will be charged to their account and they will have to repay if and when they attend that subject.
Students must maintain satisfactory grades while they are in school. Presently, the School uses numerical scores. (i.e. 100, 90 85, etc). A student needs to achieve a minimum score of 70% in each subject area of the curriculum, to receive a passing grade. For a more detailed explanation, please consult the school catalog.
