You may check your student's current attendance online on the parent cloud. A student's attendance is taken by the teacher of record. Please contact the specific teacher directly if your student has been marked absent, incorrectly. If your student is home ill, please send him or her with a note to school within 48 hours of the student returning to school.
The AISD Attendance Policy is in accordance with the Texas Education Code 25.092. This code reads "... any grade level from kindergarten through grade 12 may not be given credit or a final grade for a class unless the student is in attendance for at least 90 percent of the days the class is offered."
When a student's absence drops below 90% but remains at least 75% of the days the class is offered, the student will earn credit for the class. Students can receive credit for attending Credit Recovery. Because the number of days a specific course is offered varies, it is not possible to give an exact number of what 90% attendance looks like (due to holidays, semesters, etc.). For example, four or five absences could fall below 90%. Questions about Credit Recovery should be directed to your student's assistant principal.
The following codes are used in the 90% calculation:
The following codes are not used in the 90% calculation:
College Visits: Juniors and seniors may be excused up to 2 days each year to visit colleges if the visit is planned in advance through the Attendance Office and documentation is provided from the college (college letter on letterhead to verify the day of visit preferred).
