Letter to The Sarasota County School Board: Opposition To The New Attendance
Policy

sarasota county school board 1960 landings blvd. sarasota, fl 34231

Dear school board members:

This letter is written in opposition to the new proposed attendance policy. in
this policy it states that if you miss more than ten days of class a semester
you eill lose credit for that course.
Because you can't be sick for long periods of time. So if you caught the flu
and missed ten days of school you lost the credit for that class. or say there
is a death in the family out of state you would probably miss more than ten days
of school.
I have a friend that had his grandfather die in New York. he left on a Monday
and then he didnt come back for twelve days. if this policy was in effect he
would have lost credit for that classes and would have to take them all over
again.
In conclusion, this policy should not be passed because it will affect the
people who get sick or have a death in the family. this policy will do more harm
then good. it would be good not to pass this policy, so the students with
problems problems can still get credit for the class.
