A. Compulsory Attendance
Under Texas Education Code 25.093, Absence 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
