  • A. Compulsory Attendance

    Under Texas Education Code 25.093, Absences of ten (10) or more days, or parts of days, within a six- month period in the same school year or three (3) or more days, or parts of days, within a four-week period is considered truant. A student absent without permission from school; from any class; from required special programs, such as additional special instruction (termed “accelerated instruction” by the state) assigned by a grade placement committee; or from required tutorials will be considered in violation of the compulsory attendance law.

    B. Attendance for Class Credit

    To receive credit in a class, a student must attend at least 90 percent of the days the class is offered. A student who attends at least 75 percent, but fewer than 90 percent, of the days the class is offered, may receive credit for the class if he or she completes a credit recovery plan that allows the student to fulfill the instructional requirements for the class. If a student attends less than 75 percent of the days a class is offered or does not complete an approved Credit Recovery Plan, the student will lose credit for that class and/or will not be advanced to the next grade level. All absences, both excused and unexcused, count against the 90% attendance rule.
