Research shows that regular school attendance is vital to academic success and that student achievement improves with good attendance. Students must attend school regularly and be on time to classes in order to maximize instructional benefits. Additionally, regular school attendance and punctuality develop self-discipline and responsibility. Not only is school attendance compulsory, but it should also be encouraged and expected.
Putnam County Schools will cooperate with parents and students to try to improve their children's attendance, but parents and students must assume ultimate responsibility for regular school attendance.
Parent Notification Process
Code of Conduct
We encourage all Putnam County students to behave in a manner that promotes an orderly, nurturing, safe school environment that is conducive to learning and personal and social development:
Student disciplinary measures are initiated when rules of conduct are violated or when a student's behavior interrupts the education or activities of others or the operation of the school. Disciplinary actions are designed to meet the following immediate and long range needs:
In order to create a school culture and learning environment that foster good citizenship within the school, Putnam County Schools has established policy governing attire and appearance rights and responsibilities for the regular school day. The intent of this is to provide students great freedom in deciding what they can wear to school and, at the same time, to protect everyone's right to equal educational opportunities.
Please Note: Putnam County Schools regulations are minimum standards for attire and appearance. Schools may require additional standards that they determine necessary or appropriate for the safe, orderly conduct of school.

Putnam's grading scale in grades one through twelve is as follows:
A = 93 100%Grade Point Averages
In grades nine through twelve (9 - 12), where credit toward graduation is awarded based upon completion of Carnegie units, grade point averages are calculated by dividing quality points by the number of units taken which carry credit. The quality point value of grades is as follows:
A = 4 pointsWeighted Grades
For courses approved by the College Board as Advanced Placement, students may receive a "weighted grade" upon completion of the Advanced Placement Examination. Weighted grades carry the following quality point value:
A = 5 pointsRe-taking Courses
High school students who earn unsatisfactory grades in courses may retake the course to improve proficiency. Both grades will appear on a student's transcript; however, the higher of the two grades will be used for computing the total G.P.A.
