Can they fail me for missing school?
Hi, I'm in grade 8 and I'm going to High School in september 2013. (In Canada). The thing is, I lately have been missing A LOT of school. I missed over a week in the first semester, and started the next one off with a sick day. I remember my teacher from grade 7 telling us that they could hold you back if you missed more than 20 days... which I've missed.
So I'm really scared that I'll be held back because I have to stay home so often (I'm just really sickly). My grades are fabulous, almost all high 80's and 90's. I catch up on the work I've missed, and don't get extensions more than a day if it's homework.
What do you guys think? Even if I have good grades, could they hold me back for missing so many days?
