    Principal’s Plan for Restoring Credit

    2019-2020

    According to Texas State law, each student must be in attendance 90 percent of the days the class is offered.  The implementation of the Attendance for Credit Initiative is to ensure that all students are in attendance 90 percent of the time a class is offered to certify successful accrual of credit or final grade.

    Purpose

    Students who are passing their classes, but have excessive absences, will have the opportunity to restore credit or final grade for their classes by completing a principal’s plan.

     

    Criteria

    The Principal’s Plan to Restore Credit will be implemented for students whose attendance drops below 90 percent but is at least 75 percent of the days the class is offered.  The student must be earning a passing grade and have completed all classwork and homework associated with excessive absences. Students who earn a grade of at least 65 in any semester of a yearlong course will be given a Principal Plan opportunity.

     

    Letters

    Warning letters – When the student reaches absences equal to five percent of the days any class is offered, a warning letter will be sent to the campus for delivery to the parent or guardian.

     

    Violation letters - When the student reaches absences equal to ten percent of the days any class is offered, a violation letter will be sent to the parent or guardian via postal mail that their child may lose credit or final grade for the course due to attendance.  However, the student may be eligible to participate in the principal’s plan.

     

    Opportunities to Restore Credit

    Dates, times and registration information for Principal Plan Sessions will be posted near the Attendance Office, the Registrar’s Office, the Counselor’s Office and the Main Office. Students must pre-register by the established deadline for each session they wish to attend.

    Documentation

     

    All official documentation is to be kept by the Attendance Office in an organized format that is securely maintained and available for review.  Students may be given a copy of any documentation for their records.    

     

     

     

    Determination of Final Grade or Credit

    The Attendance Review Committee will review all documents for approval. Students will need 90 percent attendance rate, make-up work for academic seat time, and a passing grade of 70% or above in each class. The principal’s signature is required for final approval of denial or restoration of credit or final grade.
