River Dell Elementary
Johnston County School
Policy Code: 4110 Attendance
Regular attendance is required by the board of education. All students must be present for a
minimum of 91% of all class meetings to receive credit for a course during any grading period.
That is, if absences from class exceed four per nine weeks, eight per semester or 16 per year, the
maximum grade a student may receive for the grading period is F or 69, regardless of the reasons
for the absences.
In order to be considered in attendance, a student (except for hospital/homebound) must be
present in school or at a place other than school with the approval of the appropriate school
official for the purpose of attending an authorized school activity, such as a field trip, student
council meeting, athletic contest, etc.
The principal may waive the 91% requirement in extremely unusual circumstances.
Decisions of the principal with regard to attendance may be appealed in accordance with the
Student and Parent Grievances policy.
