academic deficiency which is defined as a student who does not have passing grades in at least four of six courses or the equivalent in the preceding semester

DEFINITION OF TRUANCY
Any child who has been absent from school without valid excuse for three (3) or more days, or tardy without valid excuse on three (3) or more days, is a truant. Any child who has been reported as a truant three (3) or more times is a habitual truant. Being absent for less than half of a school day shall be regarded as being tardy. A local board of education may adopt reasonable policies that require students to comply with compulsory attendance laws, that require truants and habitual truants to make up unexcused absences, and that impose sanctions for noncompliance.
Chronic absenteeism keeps students from succeeding and often causes even bright, capable students to drop out of school. This process starts early in a student's educational career and builds momentum. Students start to fall behind, feel defeated, and finally just stop going to school.
The Key Is Not To
Let This Process Start!
Parents/Guardians must express high expectations relating to school success and attendance. It is important to foster positive attitudes about the importance of school. Good attendance must be enforced and reinforced.
First Signs of a Problem with Attendance:
Excessive absences, excused and/or unexcused
Resisting going to school, making excuses to stay home
Poor grades/academic performance
Being disruptive in school
Associating with students who get into trouble
Becoming increasingly defiant or disrespectful
Cutting classes/skipping school
Expressing negative attitudes about school attendance
