Students in the blended learning program are also required to attend classes in person if they are taking them at a traditional facility. For instance, a student who is signed up for an elective class at LCHS will follow the same attendance guidelines as a traditional student for that class. In addition, blended students must attend 4 sessions (of their choice) per week. Each session missed counts as an absence. Once a student has accumulated 5 unexcused absences then the site coordinator or designee will send an official notification to the parent/guardian which will include the Lincoln County Schools Truancy Policy and the Tennessee Compulsory School Attendance Law. Once a student has accumulated 10 unexcused absences the site coordinator or designee will send an official notification to the student and parent/guardian that the student is truant and in violation of Tennessee’s Compulsory School Attendance Law. Such notification will result in the student and the parent/guardian being petitioned to juvenile court. Additionally, blended school students will be required to attend on-site meetings daily until the student is caught up and back on pace. Then the student may return to their original status on a probationary period or withdrawn to the traditional school of remand if the truancy issues are not rectified.
