New School Attendance Polilcy

The AISD Student Handbook includes changes this year regarding student absences. The new handbook will be added to the AISD website when the school year begins. Meanwhile, here is a synopsis of the most relevant changes:

Reasons an absence shall be considered excused/absent: illness or death in the family of the child; quarantine of the child and family; weather or road conditions making travel dangerous; Aledo ISD Post-District UIL event; or college visit with older sibling.

Reasons, not limited to, an absence shall be considered unexcused/absent: shopping; personal; vacation; non-Aledo ISD-sponsored sports tournament and activities; car trouble; non-medical appointment; missed bus; or illness other than the immediate family.
