Daily attendance is vital to student success. Attendance is an important factor in student achievement. Poor attendance has serious implications for later outcomes as well. The effects of lost school days build up one absence at a time on individual students as they miss vital classroom instruction.
All SISD students and parents must comply with the state's compulsory attendance law which states, students are expected to be in class 90% of the time. Failure to do so will result in loss of credit for a student, even if they pass their class. At MECHS, FOUR ABSENCES of ANY TYPE in a semester, with the exception of school activities or partial days w/ a Doctor's note, will result in loss of credit in that course.
