Recently the Attendance Policy Review Committee made three major revisions to Policy 4400. The Board of Education approved the revisions at their June 13th meeting.  
 
Research shows that one of the most important basic things a child can do to achieve academic success is going to school every day. In fact, research has shown that a child's attendance is one of the biggest factors influencing his/her academic success. There are numerous benefits of attending school daily such as: increased levels of achievement, career and college opportunities, being part of the school community, realizing the importance of education, graduating and beyond, etc. 
The definition of present was redefined for both elementary and secondary students. "A student in (Kindergarten through thirteenth grade) must be present at least seventy-five percent (75%) of the school’s instructional day to be recorded present for that day. A student in ninth through thirteenth (9th-13th) grade must be present at least seventy-five percent (75%) of the class period to be recorded present for that class period."

As always, students are expected to arrive on time and remain in school the full day. Tardies and Early Checkouts will be closely monitored; however, the previous policy that stated "three tardies equal one absence" is no longer applicable. Each school's principal will deal appropriately, as outlined in the policy, with students who are chronically tardy or leave school early.

Class attendance and participation are critical elements of the educational process and may be taken into account in assessing academic achievement; therefore, the section on "Excessive Absences" was revised at both the elementary and secondary level. At the secondary level, the issue of when a student may lose credit for a course was reviewed and the recommended revisions approved by the Board. "A student absent more than six (6) times in the same class period in a semester shall not receive credit for that class. However, the student must continue in the class with appropriate behavior and must complete required work. Students who lose credit for absences but who are passing the course(s) may make up the credit by attending the after school enrichment sessions or the summer school enrichment class."
