In order for any student to earn credit for a class, they must pass the class with an academic grade of 70% or higher AND be in attendance at least 90% of the days a class is offered. Students who fail to meet the 90% requirement put themselves in danger of not earning credit for classes even if their grade is 70% or higher.

Students under the 90% attendance rate begin to earn absence (ABS) hours that must be recovered in order to earn credit for classes. Students can check to see how many ABS hours they owe for past semesters and projected ABS hours for the current semester. If students continue to have absences or skip classes then the absences for the current semester will grow. For each period a student is absent, it will increase their ABS hours by 1.5 hours.

Check My ABS Hours

If you owe ABS hours then you are in danger of not earning credit for classes that you have excessive absences for. To recover ABS hours follow the link to the Sam Houston High School ABS Hour Recovery Canvas course for directions on recovering ABS hours. Additionally, please reach out to your specific Assistant Principal if you have questions about ABS hours or the recovery process.
