Scholar attendance records are available online 24 hours a day from Skyward Family Access.
If there is a discrepancy, families should contact the AIS campus attendance clerk to resolve the issue.
Anytime a scholar is absent we need a note (emailed or physically sent) from a parent, guardian, or doctor. Without a note, absences stay in the system as unexcused. This includes times when a parent or guardian picked them up from school or called to advise about the absence.
As stated in our Student Handbook and Code of Conduct, family vacations, visits and personal situations, are not excusable absences or extenuating circumstances. These absences will be counted as unexcused absences regardless of the number of days missed. State law governs what is considered an excusable absence.
Absent an exemption such as attendance at a private school or homeschool, Texas law requires students age 6-19 to attend school each day that instruction is provided. Compulsory attendance also applies to students who are younger than six who have previously been enrolled in first grade and to students below the age of six who are voluntarily enrolled in prekindergarten or kindergarten. For students over the age of 19, truancy may result in revocation of enrollment in certain circumstances. Tex. Educ. Code §§ 25.085-.086.
