Overview of Tardy Policy
Student tardiness hinders the educational process as it disrupts the teacher’s lesson, the students in the classroom, as well as the tardy student. Tardiness in college may lead to removal of a student from class. Tardiness in the workplace may lead to removal from the job. Tardiness at public high schools is a severe problem and we are committed to resolving it as an issue. Therefore, the following policy is now in place:
Teachers will keep track of all tardies.
- 4 tardies in the same class during any 6-week grading period will result in detention of 30 minutes.
- 7 tardies in the same class during any 6-week grading period will result in detention of 60 minutes.
- Un-served 30 minute detentions will result 60 minute detentions.
- Un-served 60 minute detention will result in Saturday School (4 hours).
