Calculating A Student Tardy/Absence

Attendance

How do I know if my child is marked absent for one (1) day or half (1/2) a day when he/she is checked-out and/or tardy?

At Worth County Primary, Elementary, and Middle School:

  • students will be marked absent for half (1/2) a day if the student is out of school for more than one and a half (1.5) hours but less than four (4) hours. 
  • students will be absent for one whole (1) day if the student is out of school four (4) or more hours. 

EXAMPLE:  If a student checks into school between 9:30am and 11:59am, the student is marked absent for half (1/2) a day.

EXAMPLE:  If a student checks into school tardy at 9am (1 hour late) and then checks-out early at 2pm (1 hour early), the student                     is marked absent for half (1/2) a day because a total of 2 hours of school was missed.  

At ALL schools, students are tardy after 8am.
