ATTENDANCE POLICIES

ATTENDANCE POLICIES

Independence High School is committed to the philosophy that good schoolwork requires good attendance. It is to the student’s benefit to maintain excellent attendance.

Students will have a conference to determine how to improve attendance and their parents will be notified by letter when students reach 5 unexcused absences. Excessive absences will result in the Raleigh County Attendance Office being notified.

Students with 15 or more unexcused absences will not be issued a driver’s license or will lose their license.

Students and parents are encouraged to review the county attendance policy which can be found on the Raleigh County Schools website and at the end of this handbook.
