90% ATTENDANCE RULE
Texas Education Code Statutes
Section 25.092. MINIMUM ATTENDANCE FOR CLASS CREDIT
(a) Except as provided by this section, a student may not be given credit for a class unless the student is in attendance for at least 90 percent of the days the class is offered.
Denial of promotion to the next grade is based on the 90% Rule (TEC 25.092). There are 175 school days this year. Eighteen (18) or more days absent will result in denial of promotion without further classroom make up time (i.e.: summer school)
Denial of promotion is handled much the same as Elementary with the following exceptions: One semester courses will require 90% attendance each semester (8 days absent maximum) to receive credit for that course. High School credit courses will be handled based on the high school rules. Each ½ credit requires 90% attendance per semester to receive that credit.
