Students should voluntarily comply with classroom policies, must not be late for class, and are not permitted to leave early. Absence is not permitted unless there is a valid and reasonable note suggesting some kind of conflicts. If the student is on leave, he/she should be asked the class teacher for approval. If the time is up to 3 days or more than 3 days, the written leave letter should be submitted to the Teaching Management Office. If you are on leave due to illness, you must bring a medical certificate such as a sick leave form and medical record card issued by your doctor to the teaching management office for sick leave.
A large number of absences will force the teaching management office and ISO to take the following measures:
a. Continuous absences of two weeks or up to 60 class hours of accumulated absences will lead the teaching management office and/or their class teacher to talk to the students in a one-on-one, ask them to explain the situation, write a written guarantee of no further unexplained absences, and return to class.
b. After the first interview (or otherwise notified), if the student remains continuously absent for a week or up to 40 class hours of accumulated absences, a special report will be submitted from the teaching management office to the ISO. A serious written warning will be issued to the student by the ISO.
c. If receipt of a written warning fails to deter severely truant students, the case will be handled in accordance with the relevant provisions and be subject to appropriate measures taken by the Shanghai Exit-Entry Administration Bureau.
Students who are absent more than one-third of scheduled class time for illness or other reasons will not be allowed to take the final exam and will not receive a certificate. For students who are absent even after warning, the school will take measures accordingly, depending on the circumstances.
