Updated Tardy Policy

*This semester, Innovation has implemented a new tardy policy. Leaders who are tardy will begin receiving consequences after the fifth tardy. The tardy policy can be found on the Innovation website and in the Innovation Student Handbook. We value all instructional time, and tardies cause missed learning time and disruptions to the classroom environment.

*Este semestre, Innovación ha implementado una nueva política de tardanzas. Los líderes que lleguen tarde comenzarán a recibir consecuencias después de la quinta tardanza. La política de tardanzas se puede encontrar en el sitio web de Innovación y en el Manual del Estudiante de Innovación. Valoramos todo el tiempo de instrucción, y las tardanzas causan pérdida de tiempo de aprendizaje e interrupciones en el ambiente del salón de clases.
