The appellant seeks reversal of a decision made by the Howard-Winneshiek Community School District board denying him credit for school work completed during the spring semester of 1982.
The specific provision at issue is the dropping of a student from a class after nine absences. There is a clause that allows the principal to extend this limit if there is "good reason". The terms of the policy also state "A student who is ill should not be in school".
The application of the district's absence policy was contrary to other portions of the policy and is considered to be unreasonable.
The local board's decision is overruled.
