Beginning with the 2008-2009 School Year, the tardy policy will state that “Every 3 Unexcused Tardies will equal 1 Unexcused Absence.” This policy is in conjunction with the Juvenile Court and the Juvenile Justice Center. In addition, each school may provide consequences based on the number of tardies for your child. Schools may utilize Detention, BIC, Extended Detention (ie. Friday School), up to and including (if necessary) Suspension from school in order to encourage on-time attendance. Our goal is to have students at school on time every day.
