Credit Reduction Policy

Credit Reduction

 The complete and updated policy can be found in the student handbook on the MHS website.

Credit Reduction Policy and Appeals
Course credit reductions occur when a student’s cumulative unexcused absences and/or tardiness exceed the limits defined by the attendance policy. Students may earn back no more than two unexcused absences in a year by attending two Saturday detentions at the conclusion of a course. The scheduling of the Saturday detentions will be at the discretion of administration.

A credit reduction appeal is necessary only when a student’s cumulative unexcused absences exceed the limits set in the preceding tables. Absences due to disciplinary infractions and suspensions are excused absences per Ch.222. Absences due to family vacations are not excused absences. The Principal will review the documentation submitted pertaining to the student's attendance situation and render a written decision as soon as possible. Parents will be notified of the principal’s decision.

Loss or reduction of course credit due to an attendance policy infraction will not require a student to repeat the course. However, a loss of course credit will affect a student’s Grade Point Average, and the student may need to pass additional courses to earn the credits necessary for graduation.
