Student Withdrawal Before the School Year's End

If the student is moving from Albuquerque Public Schools, provisions shall be made to transfer grades to the new school.

In cases involving excused absences, the school, along with the parent/legal guardian and student, shall make reasonable provisions for the student to complete the required school work so that grades will not suffer.  This may include the student receiving an incomplete for the course until required work has been completed.

If a student discontinues school attendance for reasons other than those cited above, the provisions of the existing Albuquerque Public School attendance policy and procedural directives apply. Grades shall be issued at the conclusion of the school year based on the work completed. The school shall not be obligated to provide make-up work, and final grades shall reflect the fact that the student did not complete all required work.

Teachers shall follow the same grade submission process for students’ whom withdrew before the school year’s end as they do with all other students.
