4.2.3 Excused Absences/Tardies

Excused Absences/Tardies

Students who miss school work due to an excused absence shall be given the opportunity to complete all assignments and tests that can be reasonably provided. As determined by the teacher, the assignments and tests shall be reasonably equivalent to, but not necessarily identical to, the assignments and tests missed during the absence.  It is the student’s responsibility to arrange with the teacher to make up missed work.  Students shall receive full credit for work satisfactorily completed within a reasonable period of time.  No student may have their grade reduced or lose academic credit for any excused absence when missed assignments and tests are satisfactorily completed within a reasonable period of time.  (SFUSD Board Policy 6154) In the event of excessive excused absences/tardies (in excess of 10%) the administrator may request medical verification of the need for absence. (SFUSD Board Policy 5113)
