    2. The student may not have attended either DAEP or ISS.

    4. The student may not have a missing/unpaid library book or fine.
    5. All Chromebook forms and fees must be completed.
    6. The student must have started on the first day of the semester.
    7. AP students must take the corresponding AP exams to become eligible.
    8. College days do not count against exemptions.

    Assignments/tests can be made up after absences. Students are to complete the work not to exceed the number of days of consecutive absences.

    Students can turn in work until a major grade is taken over the content or unit. A grade of 80 is the maximum grade for late work.
