"Miss 10, Do it Again!"
It is the LAW that a student cannot miss 10 or more days of school and receive credit for their courses. Subsequent violations of the Scottsdale Unified School District Code of Conduct or Arizona law including but not limited to A.R. S. 15-802, A.R.S. 15-803, A.R.S. 15-804, will result in further disciplinary procedures, which will include placement on audit status and loss of credit.
Excused and Unexcused Absences
The law pertains to both excused and unexcused absences. This means that between the first day of the semester and the last day of the semester, a student may be absent up to 10 times without school penalty; however, missing class information can impact the student’s grade.
** The only exception is for a chronic medical condition or other admin approved extenuating circumstances with documentation**
