Attendance & BehaviorTop of Page

It is important that any student enrolled in summer school attend regularly and on time. During the school year a student must complete 60 hours of in-class time to receive credit. In summer school, students are trying to earn enough seat time to earn credit, meaning that attendance is extremely important.

  • Attendance is taken every hour in summer school.
  • 2 tardies = 1 absent
  • If a student is 30 minutes late for a class period, it is marked as an absence.
  • Students may not exceed 10 total hours of absences. (1 day of summer school = 5 hours of class.)
  • Any student missing 2 days of summer school will be dropped. A guardian will be called and informed of the student being dropped from summer school.


Each student must sign a Behavior Expectations Policy at the beginning of summer school. Students will be dismissed from summer school for repeated disruptive behavior. This may include, but not limited to:

  • cell phone use or ipods in the classroom
  • being tardy to class
  • wandering outside of classroom during class time
  • dressing inappropriately
  • failing to follow normal classroom procedures
  • disrupting the learning environment in any way.

Major infractions for immediate dismissal and possible further consequences:

  • fighting or attempting to cause harm to another
  • possessing, using or attempting to sell drugs, alcohol, or any illegal substance
  • possessing a weapon
  • engaging in habitual profanity
  • bullying or threatening another student,
  • defying a valid school authority
