The New Tardy Policy Pilot Is Over

If you were hoping to restart the semester with a clean tardy record, now is the time to do it. San Mateo High School began to pilot a new tardy policy that could possibly be put into use for the 2017-2018 school year. This new policy came into fruition on April 17 and lasted until May 12.

 

Instead of teachers writing tardy referrals, students are given consequences after accumulating a certain number of tardies to any class, not just the first class of the day. Each semester, the tardy policy is reset, so you can start with a clean slate.

The consequences include an added hour of “choices” for each accumulative five tardies (one hour for five tardies and two hours for 10 tardies). When a student reaches 15 tardies, they are required to attend three hours of Saturday school, as well as sign a student contract. At 20 tardies, the student is required to attend Saturday school for three hours, twice, and an Alternative to Suspension.

If the pilot is successful, this new tardy policy will be implemented on the 2017-2018 school year with the same concept and consequences.
