Make-up School Information 4/23/20

Thursday, 4/23/2020


Attendance Failures and Make-Up School Purpose: To provide clear guidance, expectations, and procedures for students who have failed a course due to attendance during semester one (Fall 2019).


Attendance Failures and Eligibility: Students who fail courses due to the lack of obtaining the required seat time will be allowed to regain appropriate seat time through a Rock Hill Schools make-up school program.


Make-up School Program Model:  Rock Hill Schools will offer an attendance make up school program that will provide identified students an opportunity to make up attendance through an hourly/daily make-up school attendance model. The attendance school model will be offered during designated days and times that are not inclusive of a student’s regular school class schedule. The make-up school facilitator may assign students instructional assignments or activities that will allow each student to progress on his/her individual learning continuum. Remedial or enhancement learning activities and assignments may be given, which may include virtual or teacher learning assignments.


Progress Monitoring and Accountability: Student completion of attendance make-up school will be monitored by a school based designee to ensure; 1) compliance and completion of assigned make up school hours/days and 2) FA grade(s) are updated on students’ transcript efficiently and in a timely manner.


2019-2020 Make-Up School Guidelines and Procedures:

  • All students who may fail a course during quarter three due to attendance will be waived. Daily attendance for quarter four of the 2019-2020 school year is not being maintained or recorded. Therefore, no student will fail a course due to attendance for any course(s) students are enrolled in during the Spring 2020 semester of the 2019-2020 school year.
