Attendance and Chronic Absenteeism
In the event of a remote or hybrid schedule, students will be expected to participate in online activities such as, but not limited to, classroom remote instruction (synchronous learning), a video-conference, or completing time-sensitive online tasks such as answering questions or completing an assignment during that 24-hour period. The classroom teacher will collect daily attendance based on the participation of these activities and report this to the Principal.
Attendance reports will be reviewed every 5 weeks by the Attendance Committee and a targeted intervention plan will be developed for students who are at-risk of becoming chronically absent. Chronic Absenteeism is defined as “missing at least ten percent of enrolled school days”. Those who have been chronically absent in the past, will meet with a social worker at the beginning of the school year to create an intervention plan. The social worker and student will review the plan periodically to help troubleshoot challenges encountered by the student and their family as the year progresses.
