Absences from classes and work appointments are discouraged, but when they cannot be avoided, this form must be filled out and submitted to Ad Council before the absence occurs. Ad Council meets weekly on Tuesday morning at 10:30 AM. The forms can be turned in to anyone in the academy office.
Any absence other than illness or death in the family MUST HAVE AUTHORIZATION FROM ADMINISTRATIVE COUNCIL at least a week prior to the absence. (Ad Council meets every Tuesday morning during the school year.) When parents desire to have their student miss classes that would normally be considered unexcused, a Pre-Arranged Class Absence Request Form must be submitted to Administrative Council (Ad Council) at least a week in advance. Absence requests that are approved will not incur points but under the North Carolina Truancy law will be considered unexcused absences. The Pre-Arranged Class Absence Request form may be picked up at the Academy Office or downloaded from our website and RenWeb. Parents are encouraged to plan family vacations and routine doctor/dentist appointments during regularly scheduled home leaves to ensure that the attendance requirements are met. For academic purposes absences will not be approved during the months of December and May.
