ATTENDANCE FOR AISD & ACHS
It is imperative that our students make every effort to be in attendance 100% of the school days every year at ACHS. All students are required by law to be present for 90% of the days for any course in order to receive credit. If a student fails to attend 90% of the days, he/she cannot receive credit for the course, regardless if the absences are excused or if they have a passing grade. Refer to the AISD Student Code of Conduct for further details regarding the attendance policy. If an ACHS student is absent from school for 3 or more days in the same calendar school year, they could be removed from the program and would have to attend a traditional high school.
**IF A STUDENT MISSES A BUS OR HAS TRANSPORTATION ISSUES, THEY ARE TO CALL THE ACHS OFFICE AT 817-515-3550 IMMEDIATELY SO OTHER TRANSPORTATION ARRANGEMENTS CAN BE EXPLORED.**
It is imperative that you attend your college classes. One absence, depending on the course and/or professor, may jeopardize your ability to earn credit. If you are absent for a college class for any reason, your parents cannot excuse your absence.
All ACHS students are required to be in their designated classroom at the scheduled time class is to begin. Tardy policy at ACHS may vary depending on the class and/or professor. Be sure to find out the tardy policy for each college class you attend. ACHS discipline steps regarding tardiness are as follows:
- Student/Teacher Conference
- Parental Contact/Conference plus consequences (detention, loss of privileges, etc.)
- Office Referral/Discretionary Administrative Consequences
EXCESSIVE TARDIES & ABSENCE NOTICE
Due to the rigorous and unique requirements at ACHS, excellent attendance and punctuality are priorities. Students who accumulate excessive tardies and/or absences could be removed from ACHS and required to return to a traditional AISD high school.
