I'm filling out an open enrollment form for 7th grade and I am currently stuck at this question... 18. Does the student have a record of excessive absences or truancies from any school or school district? (Absences may be considered excessive when the number of absent days exceeds 10% of the number of required attendance days.) ___YES ___ NO If yes, please provide details: So last year for 5th grade we did receive a letter stating he did pass the 10% allowed, BUT as all of his tardies and absences were D related, and he had both the 504 stating he could not be penalized for D related absences/tardies, plus the chronic illness form, I want to say that those absences should not count against him, so I am tempted to mark it "No". But since he was in fact absent/tardy due to D, maybe I should mark yes and explain? What would you guys do with this?
