Attendance (JB)

It shall be the policy of the board to encourage regular attendance at school by all students. Regular attendance contributes not only to the probability of scholastic success but also to the development of attitudes of consistent performance, which will carry over into adult life. It shall be the policy of the board that student handbooks shall have a procedure for notifying parents on the day of a student's absence if the parents have not notified the school.

Approved: NOVEMBER 18, 1996


Daily attendance records shall be maintained for each student in the schools. The primary responsibility for recording attendance shall be assigned to the appropriate teacher on forms prescribed by the superintendent. The superintendent shall include an attendance report as a section of the annual report to the board and may report attendance problems to the board at other times, as deemed necessary.

Approved: NOVEMBER 18, 1996
