Make-Up Work:

At the secondary level, absences are tied to course credit. Nine (9) absences (excused or unexcused) per semester [five (5) in the extended period or block class] are tolerated. Work may be made up as follows: (1) A student is eligible to make up class work due to absence without academic penalty. (2) Two (2) days for each day of eligible absence (nine (9) days per semester/five (5) days in the extended or block period per nine (9) weeks) shall be given to complete all class make-up work. Long-term projects assigned prior to the absence shall be due on the date the student returns to class. Exceptions may be made with proper documentation. Exams, tests, or quizzes shall be rescheduled at the discretion of the teacher. (3) Make-up work for absences due to the first out-of-school suspension of the school year may be requested if the suspension is not a zero tolerance violation. Homework will be made available upon request by the student/parent within twenty-four (24) hours of the suspension and will be subject to the normal homework policy. Make-up work privileges shall not exist for subsequent out-of-school suspensions except for exams (or equivalent). (4) A student is permitted to make up a semester exam (or equivalent) regardless of the number of suspensions. The date for the make-up exam will be determined by the principal (or designee).
