Attendance and Earned Credit Policy

The Attendance and Credit Earned handbook will not be distributed this year. The handbook is a restatement of FHSD Regulation 2310. Regulation 2310 will be revised, and will be recommended for BOE approval in October. Some of the recommended changes to Regulation 2310 will be to refer to percentage of attendance rather than days absent, a tiered approach of intervention, and deleting the removal of credit for excessive absences. A revised attendance letter will be provided to buildings.  


It is imperative that students attend school daily. However, students should not attend school with any contagious or infectious disease (Mo.R.S.167.191). For more information and Francis Howell’s Attendance and Illness Guidelines, click here.
