Attendance and academic success are highly correlated; therefore Quest High School promotes good attendance practices. In order to receive credit for a course, a student must attend each day and complete all work required at a level that is acceptable by the teacher. The only acceptable documentation for absences will be from a doctor or medical facility, court personnel or proof of bereavement.
Additionally, if a student accrues ten consecutive unexcused absences in one class, he or she will be withdrawn from the class. If a student accrues ten consecutive unexcused absences in all classes, he or she will be withdrawn from the school. A student who is a no show for three consecutive days at the beginning of a block will be withdrawn from the school. If a student is withdrawn from the school, he or she may re-enroll if space permits. Upon re-enrollment a student can be re-scheduled to different classes/class schedule. Re-enrollment schedules may not provide full credit opportunities. Absences If an illness or emergency occurs that keeps the student from attending school, the parent/guardian must contact the school daily and explain the reason for missing classes. If the school does not receive a call by the parent/guardian regarding the student’s absence, then the school may contact the parent/guardian to verify the absence. When the student returns he/she is responsible for completing all missing work in a timely manner. Quest High School recommends that the student have no absences in a block.
Tardy Policy If tardy, a student needs to sign in at the office and receive a pass in order to be admitted to class. If a student is more than thirty (15) minutes late for class, the student will be considered absent from the class. Three tardies of less than thirty minutes will be considered an absence and count toward the absence maximum.
