Loss of Credit “LOC*”

Students who fall below 90% attendance will receive an “LOC*” on their semester report card, signifying the potential loss of credit due to TEC 25.092.

Students may be able to recover the credit and grade by working with their campus administration and attendance committee to complete a Loss of Credit Agreement.

Texas Education Code 25.094 – Failure to Attend School: An individual commits and offense if the individual fails to attend school on 10 or more days or parts of days within a six-month period in the same school year or on three or more days or parts of days within a four-week period.
