Marshall County Schools Tardy Policy
A tardy is defined as a late check in or an early check out from school.
After five (5) unexcused tardies, parents will receive written notice from school as a warning that further unexcused tardies will result in a summons to the Marshall County Schools Tardy Review Board. Additional unexcused tardies may result in parents being charged with Educational Neglect in the Marshall County Juvenile Court. This will be accompanied by an automatic DCS referral. Tardies DO NOT start over; they continue to accumulate during the second semester.
If you have ever been to the Tardy Review Board, that step will be skipped, and you will be summoned straight to the Marshall County Truancy Board for the eighth unexcused tardy.
