Attendance Information

Success Charter School Institute believes that daily attendance is vital to the learning environment and the growth of a student. Students are expected to be in attendance for the entire day when school is in session except when there is a situation that is considered an excusable absence (see below).

Excused Absences

The North Carolina State Legislature and North Carolina State Board of Education sets the guidelines for what is permitted as an excusable absence. The following is a list of what is considered an excusable absence,

  • Illness or injury prevents the student from being physically able to attend school.

  • The local health officer or the State Board of Health orders the isolation of the student.

  • The student is absent due to the death of a member of the immediate family.

  • The student has a medical or dental appointment.

  • The student is a party to or is under subpoena as a witness in the proceedings of a court or administrative tribunal.

  • The student is absent due to a religious observance in accordance with local school board policy.

  • The student obtains prior approval to take advantage of a valid educational opportunity, such as travel.
