Attendance Office: 281-517-2967
Texas state law requires students to be in attendance 90% of each class each semester. If a student is in attendance less than 90% of the time, he/she is considered to have “Excessive Absences” (“EA”) and may not receive credit for the class.
To comply with state requirements, Leonard Brautigam Center follows these guidelines:
55 Minute Class
- 18 week classes make-up time = 1 hour per absence
- An “EA” occurs on the 10th absence of an eighteen-week semester
115 Minute Classes
- 9 week classes make-up time = 2 hours per absence
- An “EA” occurs on the 6th absence of a nine-week mini-mester (MM).
Notes documenting absences for such reasons as doctor appointments or court appearances must be turned in to the office within 3 days of the absence. All notes must be original; photocopies are not acceptable. You may email a copy of the original note (by taking a picture of it) to the attendance secretary April.Peterson@cfisd.net.
