Policies and Procedures
Make Up Work
Per the Humble ISD Parent Student Handbook:
Students are expected to make up work missed while they were absent. They will be given full credit for work done that satisfies the conditions of the district policy for make-up work. Students shall be permitted to take tests administered in any class missed because of absence. For any class missed, the teacher may assign the student makeup work based on the instructional objectives for the subject or course and the needs of the individual student in mastering the essential knowledge and skills or in meeting subject or course requirements. A student will be responsible for obtaining and completing the makeup work in a satisfactory manner and within the time specified by the teacher.
Students should expect to do more paperwork than those who were in attendance because it is necessary to make up for classroom experiences missed. The following is offered as a minimum guideline for completing make-up work:
1 day absence - 1 day following return to school
2 day absence - 2 days after return to school
3 day absence - 3 days after return to school
4 day absence - 4 days after return to school
5 day absence - 5 days after return to school
After a student has been absent for three days, the parent/guardian may request make-up work through the appropriate office designated by the campus.
Students absent more than five (5) days must make arrangements with their teachers for making up the work missed within one week (5 school days) after their return to school. Late work guidelines also apply to make-up work. If students are absent on a predetermined due date, the material is due the day the student returns to school. (See Late Work Policy.)
*When requesting work for your child due to an absence, allow 24 hours for the work to be assembled and submitted to the office for pick up.
*Teachers are not required to give assignments in advance for prearranged absences.
