Dallas ISD’s Parent Services department wants to share a reminder for students enrolled in an Intersession or School Day Redesign school: While it feels like summer, we are not yet done with school. Students’ attendance for the next few weeks of classes is important for their success. If parents have any questions about the schedule, please call your student’s school directly.
To receive credit or a final grade for a class, a student is required to attend class 90 percent of the days class is offered, regardless of whether the student’s absences are excused. When a student attends less than 90 percent but at least 75 percent of the days the class is offered and earns a passing grade, the student may earn credit or a final grade for the class by completing a plan approved by the principal that allows the student to meet the instructional requirements of the class.
The Dallas ISD Parent Services department is available to help parents navigate the attendance process by removing barriers that prevent students from attending school. For more information, visit dallasisd.org/attendance. And for more information on Attendance for Credit, click here.
About Intersession and School Day Redesign Campuses
Forty-one Dallas ISD schools have an Intersession calendar, and five schools have a School Day Redesign calendar.
The alternative calendars are one part of a comprehensive effort Dallas ISD is making to help ensure the pandemic doesn’t have a long-lasting negative impact on student learning. Visit http://dallasisd.org/timetolearn to learn more.
