Attendance Expectation: Students are expected to attend classes from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily. Bus riders, however, will be scheduled from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. to allow for travel time.
Special Schedules: Students who have reached Senior status and are 18 or older, may select a shortened schedule if they are employed. The shortened schedules are from 7:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. , 12:00 p.m. o 4:00 p.m. , and 4 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Students should be attending all classes every day. Students must have approval from administration to stay past their scheduled session. Students not attending classes consistently may be withdrawn from Success. Students may not leave school without written permission from a parent/guardian. Exceptions are emancipated minors or adult students living independently.
Truancy Filing: Failure to meet compulsory attendance requirements will result in a court filing for truancy. In addition, if the problem persists, the student is at risk of being dismissed from Success High School to return to his/her home campus.
Examples of excused absences are:
- Personal illness (parent note)
- Court/probation appointments (note from the court)
- Jury duty (note from the court)
- Medical Appointments do not count as absences if the student brings documentation from the doctor/dentist and attends at least a partial day of school on the day of the appointment.
Students, parents or guardians are expected to call the school office and/or student advisor to report an absence. All absences should also be documented in writing within 48 hours of the student returning to school. Notes must include the student’s name, ID number,date of absence, and reason for the absence.
All students are scheduled into a daily advisory. Students must attend all classes and the daily advisory in order to be counted present for the day.
Advisors will contact students and parents each time that a student is absent from class without prior notice.
