• Principal’s Plan for Restoring Credit – North Dallas High School

    2023 - 2024

    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 earn a passing grade and have completed all classwork and homework associated with excessive absences.

     

    Letters

     

    Warning lettersWhen the student reaches absences equal to five percent of the days any class is offered, a warning letter is generated and will be available via the Dallas ISD website under Parent/Student Services. The campus may also contact the parents to make them aware that a warning letter has been generated.

     

    Violation letters - When the student reaches absences equal to ten percent of the days any class is offered, a violation letter is generated and will be available via the Dallas ISD website under Parent/Student Services. However, the student may be eligible to participate in the principal’s plan.
