ATTENDANCE APPEALS DUE:

STUDENT PROCEDURES FOR ATTENDANCE APPEALS

Students who are passing a class (60 or higher), but have violated the attendance policy by accumulating more than 8 unexcused absences in that class, will not receive credit for that course.  

If absences are attributed to extenuating circumstances, including but not limited to hospitalizations, lengthy illnesses treated by medical professionals, or other serious illnesses or injuries, an attendance waiver may be requested in order to appeal the loss of course credit. 

*Parents can view their child's attendance through the Power School Parent website. Parents will need a user name and password to use the Parent website. Parents must stop by the office and provide ID to receive their user name and password.

To appeal the denial of course credit due to excessive unexcused absences, students should:

  1. Review the Yadkin County Schools Attendance Policy (See link below).
  2. Pick up your Appeals Report and Student Attendance Questionnaire in the Pass Room after 1:30pm on Friday, January 6, 2017.
  3. Verify with Mrs. Baity in the Pass Room that all doctor’s notes and other documentation for excused absences have been submitted.
  4. Ask each of your teachers to complete the Class Information Section on the form, and give each teacher a Student Attendance Questionnaire to be completed and turned in to the office. 
  5. Sign the Appeals Report form and also have your parent sign the Appeals Report form.
  6. Submit the Attendance Appeals form to the office on or before Friday, January 20, 2017.
 

Students will be notified of the result of their appeal in a timely manner. Please note that incomplete or late appeals will not be considered.
