SCHOOL ATTENDANCE

Seniors are required by the State of Ohio to attend 93% of our school days to earn a diploma.

Students who miss more than the 93%, MUST make up the days prior to graduation.

Tonight, you will get your attendance percentage and an idea of how many make-up days you have so far. 

Some mandatory senior days will count as make-up days:  testing days, grad practice days, health walk day, and tonight’s meeting!

Other ways to make up days include coming to school all day, Saturday school, doing community service activities, or turning in additional paystubs. If you are credit-deficient, coming to school all day is a good option!
