Attendance Guidelines for Families:
Posted on 09/08/2020

We know regular attendance is critical to student success. During remote learning, daily attendance will be taken based on evidence of participation, not based on a specific time. We will monitor student instructional time and support student engagement.

It is essential that students engage and participate, daily, in as many live activities and on-demand assignments as possible. Participation and engagement are not optional. 

We recognize that family schedules and situations vary, and the remote learning plan is as flexible as possible. Student absences are a critical component to your students’ academic success and will not be used in a punitive manner or tied to grades. 


Live and on-demand sessions are critical to learning. Families should prioritize their children's scheduled class times if possible. If that is not possible, every attempt should be made to access class instructions/assignments as soon as possible after the fact.  Please note that learning support hours offered by the teacher are where students can get individualized support and small group instruction. If students are not able to attend daily, live instruction opportunities, they can still meet attendance requirements by completing work at other times of day through Google Classroom and through watching recorded instruction.


Evidence of Student Attendance

Students will be counted as present for the day if they do any of the following:

  • Participate in their scheduled live sessions
  • Participate in a drop-in live session
  • Engage in Google Classroom
  • Engage in an assignment 
  • Engage with their teacher about the day’s learning through email, phone call, etc. 

Reporting an Absence
Parents and guardians may report absences as they typically would by contacting the main office at the elementary level or the attendance office at the secondary level.

Please contact your student’s teacher, attendance office, or school administrator with questions.
