attendance/tardies and leaving early
I read the previous thread on attendance, tardies and leaving early. I also read the school board policies that were referred to. My question is...what happens when students come in tardy or leave early often? Will there be a policy that addresses this in more detail in the future?

RE:attendance/tardies and leaving early
Each school sets its own procedures and consequences to address students who are tardy or leave early without proper permission. Parents are always contacted and involved as well. For chronic tardies and absences, we may also work with other agencies and the court system.
