PURPOSE: To clarify student attendance, admission and dismissal procedures and requirements.
PURPOSE: To specify the Board’s intention regarding student attendance expectations and to clarify the impact absenteeism may have upon a student’s potential for promotion and/or earning passing grades, revocation of transfers, and referral to the District Attorney for violation of the Turkish ministry of education.
Official attendance shall be reported and recorded in every session during the school day. Students shall be in attendance in all sessions to be recorded as present. The daily attendance of students is digitally recorded on the Turkish ministry of education and in case of absence or missing classes, parents/ guardians receive immediate message notification.
Students arriving late and/or departing early shall have their attendance record accurately reflect the portion of the school day they were reported as “present.”
Kindergarten and early childhood students shall be counted “present” for the whole day if they attend for two and one-half or more hours of any scheduled daily session.
If a child is absent without valid excuse four (4) or more days or parts of days within a four week period or if the child is absent from school for ten (10) or more days or parts of days within a term without a valid excuse, the student affairs office shall immediately report such absences to school district wherein the school is located for juvenile proceedings.
Excused absences: Students are encouraged to make up work for all absences. Students who have excused absences may receive credit for their work completed in a timely manner after their return to school. Students are responsible for securing and completing make-up assignments. Students will be allowed one-day make-up time for each day’s absence. Preannounced tests are taken on the assigned dates. Absences the day prior to the test does not excuse the student from taking the test. Work satisfactorily made up within the prescribed time after returning to school will receive full credit.
Unexcused absences: Credit will be disallowed for work missed due to an unexcused absence, but students are encouraged to complete work to ensure success in future learning.
Suspension is a consequence of student behavior requiring removal from school. Days missed due to suspension are not included in the absence calculation. Students who have been suspended are encouraged to maintain their school responsibilities by completing assignments during their term of suspension. Work successfully completed by suspended students will be accepted for consideration relative to credit/grades.
Students who are available at the time of admission and whose academic and personal needs can be met by the school programs are eligible to admission.
