IKAD - Grade Reduction/Credit Denial

Code: IKAD
Adopted: 8/13/97
Grade reduction or credit denial determinations may include student attendance.  Student attendance may not be a sole criterion.  However, if attendance is a factor, prior to a grade reduction or credit denial, the following shall occur:
  1. The teacher will identify how the attendance and class participation is related to the instructional goals of the subject or course;
  2. Parents and students will be informed;
  3. Procedures in due process are available to the student when the grade is reduced or credit denied for attendance rather than academic reasons;
  4. Reasons for non-attendance are considered and the grade is not reduced or credit denied based upon absences due to:
    1. Religious reasons;
    2. A student’s disability; or
    3. An excused absence, as determined by the district’s policy.
