  • General Waiversare waivers that require听detailed information surrounding the district's waiver request.
  • Attendance Waiversinclude Missed School Days, Low Attendance Days, and Additional Days School Year (ADSY) waivers. The district or campus听can request a waiver for excused absences if instructional days听are missed or听if attendance is low听due to weather, health, or safety issues.听
  • Maximum Class Size Exceptionis required under the provision of TEC 搂25.112 if any class for grades PK-4 exceeds the allowable class size limit of 22 students per class (22:1). An exception听expires at the end of the school year for which it is granted.
