STORM STUDENT ATTENDANCE INFORMATION
ABSENCES/TRUANCY: You must attend all classes and study halls unless your absence is authorized by our Dean, the Assistant Principal or Principal. Not only is daily attendance required by law, but it is also essential for the successful completion of your courses. The most common cause of academic failure is absence. An unauthorized absence for part or all of a school day constitutes truancy. FAILURE TO REPORT AN ABSENCE IN FORTY-EIGHT HOURS MAY RESULT IN AN AUTOMATIC UNAUTHORIZED ABSENCE.
If you accumulate excessive authorized absences, the Dean, Assistant Principal, or the Principal may require a doctor’s verification for subsequent absences. Students who exhibit excessive absence patterns will be referred to a member of the Student Support Team for possible referral to the Kane County Regional Office of Education Truancy Division. Chronic truancy will be reported to the Kane County Regional Office of Education. A chronic truant is a student of compulsory school age who is absent without valid cause for 5% or more of the previous 180 regular student attendance days.
Listed below are some attendance guidelines:
