Students in grades 9-12 who are absent for 8 periods or more in a semester long course or 15 in a
yearlong course may fail the course. Yearlong courses are defined as courses which meet on a daily
basis for the entire school year. Students with 8 or more unexcused absences will have the opportunity
to make up the required seat time during Attendance Recovery.
Attendance Recovery is for students who have a chance to pass academically but are in danger of
failing due to absences. Recovery will be aligned to the class/classes where the absences occurred.
Recovered absences will not change the attendance record and excessive absences may impact other
opportunities including the ability to participate in co-curricular and extra-curricular activities.
Students who are eligible for Attendance Recovery will receive notification from our attendance officer,
Mrs. Bowen, on May 12, 2022 via student email and a letter will be mailed home. Parents will also
receive notification through a Blackboard Connect message. Included in the communication to eligible
students and their parents will be information regarding how much time the student needs to make-up
through Attendance Recovery along with the process for signing up to attend.
Parents who have any questions after receiving their notification are asked to contact Mrs. Bowen by
