the "policy" you have informally stated is the root of the problem
which cindy is raising---WHEN will your child be prevented from
graduating because they have spend "too many" days visiting
this policy is way too vague to be meaningful and, therefore, every
student's situation must be deal with INDIVIDUALLY. expensive???
you bet. stupid, vague policies that put target signs on the backs of
virtually all hcpss students will always end up costing howard county
citizens (and, especially, parents) money.
but the stakes are way too high to ignore this idiotic policy since
many colleges require high school graduation and no student
wants to finish their high school career without a diploma.
remember---"your" board of education seeks to keep all those
fresh law school graduates employed thru discretionary and
random acts of idocity by school administrators. either vote
them out of office or shell out the bucks to protect your children.
