NG Coding on Report Cards for 18+ Unexcused Absences 


On report cards of students in grades 9-12 on Jan. 6, there may be a new notation "NG" that hides a student's grade due to having 18 or more unexcused absences in that course.   Students who receive NG grades may not be failing the course; instead, they failed to meet expanded state attendance requirements, so they will not receive a grade until that course is recovered.  HB 5, an updated regulation passed by the Texas Legislature, outlines standards for promotion and graduation to include attendance. 


The school considers students who miss more than 10% of class time as "excessive, unexcused absences" by the school. Although YES Prep will assign and record grades, they will not be awarded to students who have excessive absences until the student recovers the missing seat time. 


The student may correct this issue by repeating the course, attending credit recovery, or completing attendance recovery.  The campus attendance committee can also be contacted in cases where extenuating circumstances exist.  More information on enrolling in credit recovery or attendance recovery will be released in February. If parents or guardians have any questions regarding attendance recovery in the Spring, they may contact the campus Director of Student Support (DSS).

En las boletas de calificaciones de los estudiantes en los grados 9-12 el 6 de enero, puede haber una nueva anotación "NG" que oculte la calificación de un estudiante debido a que tiene 18 o más ausencias injustificadas en ese curso. Los estudiantes que reciben calificaciones NG no pueden estar reprobando el curso; En cambio, no cumplieron con los requisitos de asistencia estatal ampliada, por lo que no recibirán una calificación hasta que se recupere ese curso. HB 5, una regulación actualizada aprobada por la Legislatura de Texas, describe los estándares para la promoción y graduación para incluir la asistencia. 


La escuela considera a los estudiantes que pierden más del 10% del tiempo de clase como "ausencias excesivas e injustificadas" por parte de la escuela. Aunque YES Prep asignará y registrará calificaciones, no se otorgarán a los estudiantes que tengan ausencias excesivas hasta que el estudiante recupere el tiempo que no asistió. 


El estudiante puede corregir este problema repitiendo el curso, asistiendo a la recuperación de créditos o completando la recuperación de asistencia. También se puede contactar con el comité de asistencia del campus en los casos en que existan circunstancias atenuantes. Más información sobre cómo inscribirse en la recuperación de crédito o la recuperación de asistencia se dará a conocer en febrero. Si los padres o tutores tienen alguna pregunta sobre la recuperación de la asistencia en la primavera, pueden comunicarse con el Director de Apoyo Estudiantil (DSS) del campus.
