40 Tex. Admin. Code § 807.283 - Attendance Record Keeping

Current through Reg. 46, No. 53; December 31, 2021

(a) The following requirements are for non-Title IV schools:
(1) A school offering seminars or other programs where students do not change instructors during the school day is not required to maintain a separate master record of attendance.
(2) A school shall maintain a master record of attendance on each student that clearly indicates the number of scheduled hours each day and the hours of absence.
(3) Each instructor shall maintain a record of attendance, which shall indicate a positive record of each student's attendance. Entries in the record of attendance shall be made in ink or other permanent medium, including other permanent computer records, and shall not be changed in a manner that precludes reading the original entry.
(b) The following requirements are for Title IV schools:
(1) The school shall maintain a form signed and dated by the student to document the student's participation in an academically related activity. An e-mail sent from the student's e-mail account listed on the enrollment agreement fulfills this requirement.
(2) The school shall maintain a master record for each student that clearly indicates the student's class schedule as well as the number of scheduled hours for each class day. For synchronous distance education students, the record shall indicate the number of scheduled hours for each week.
(c) Nothing in this chapter prevents a Title IV school from voluntarily using attendance as a manner of fulfilling the requirements of this chapter.
