Honors citizenship will be entered at the midterm and final grading periods.
You can view your student’s citizenship grade and details online in the same place you check their grade by clicking on the citizenship letter.  Please refer to each teacher’s disclosure document for specific behaviors and points that affect the citizenship grade.
Attendance affects the citizenship in the following manner:

5 or more tardies = student will receive a U in citizenship.
More than 7 excused absences for illness, check in/check outs for illness  = student will receive a U in citizenship.
