Frequently Asked Questions

FBCA is in session for 180 days each school year and designs its curriculum and programs around full attendance by each student. In the event a student MUST be absent from school, FBCA will assist the family to make up missed work.
Absentee Policy
Excessive absences will affect your students’ academic progress and progression to the next grade. All scholarship students are available for auditing at any time by the scholarship agency in regards to regular attendance. Failure of the audit could result in a loss of the scholarship. Non-scholarship students are also held accountable for excessive absences through our accrediting agency. The following is a list of codes that will be used in accordance with state, FACCS, and scholarship guidelines.
  • Absence Excused (AE):  Dr. Note Required, No Academic Penalty, does not count to the Maximum 9
  • Absence Unexcused (AU):  Parent Note Required, No Academic Penalty, counts to the Maximum 9, over 9 student makes up time
  • Absence Illicit/Skipping (AI):  No Parent or Dr. Note, No make-up of Academic work, counts to the Maximum 9, Includes out of school suspension
  • Tardy (T):  3 tardies equal an unexcused absence
  • Homebound (HB):  Please see later in this section for description of homebound
  • School Event (SE):  This will be used for field trip and athletic events, does not count to the maximum 9, all work must be made up promptly.
  • In School Suspension (ISS):  Work is done in school and does not count toward the maximum 9.
  • Out of School Suspension (OSS):  This will be treated like an Illicit Absence
More than 9 unexcused/illicit absences in a semester can result in a loss of credit, loss of scholarship, or lack of promotion to the next grade level. In grades 7th – 12th attendance and tardies are taken each period.
Students will have one (1) day to make up work for each day missed. Therefore, if a student misses one (1) day, he will have one (1) day after he returns to make up the work. If a student is absent on a day a test is given and had knowledge of the test prior to the absence (or if it was an unannounced quiz), the student should take the test the day he returns. It is the student's responsibility to find out from the classroom teacher what work was missed and to arrange a time to make up the work and the tests when absent for more than one day.
Homebound Students
FBCA provides a special Homebound program for students who must be absent from class due to an extended illness with a Dr. note. The office will notify the teachers of the extended illness, arrange for class work which will be missed or special projects to be completed in place of class discussions, and arrange for the family to pick-up the necessary materials. All of the assigned work must be completed and submitted to the teachers the day the student returns to classes. Once the teachers verify that all of the work was done, the days missed (or portion equal to the amount of work completed) are recorded as Homebound days rather than days absent from class. For this reason, the homebound program must be established prior to the student's return to school. Work not submitted upon return to classes will result in the days counting as days absent and will be added to the cumulated days which may not exceed 9 per class per semester. Homebound arrangements will not be considered after a student returns to classes.
