REGULATION

STUDENT ATTENDANCE Supplemental for REMOTE LEARNING

(Remote Learning Daily Attendance)

 

Student attendance and daily participation remain critical components of learning.  This is particularly important in a remote learning environment.  Parents should continue to call in to the school’s attendance line to report absences and/or technical difficulties with the remote learning environment.

Attendance in a distant/remote learning environment is defined as “engaging with the assigned material.”  This will be measured by the “check-in” assigned by the individual teacher.

Student attendance will be captured within Powerschool in the following ways, and will always be determined no later than 11:59 p.m. each night.

For grades Pre-K to 2

Each student’s parent or caregiver shall provide daily affirmation of the student’s readiness and presence for instruction by a scheduled time indicated by the teacher.   Each student will keep a portfolio of completed assignments to be returned to the teacher.

For grades 3rd to 5th

Each student (or student’s parent/caregiver) will provide daily affirmation of the student’s readiness and presence for instruction by a scheduled time indicated by the teacher. Each student will keep a portfolio of completed assignments to be returned to the teacher.

For grades 6th to 8th 

Each student will provide daily affirmation of the student’s readiness and presence for instruction by responding to the teacher’s “check-in” during the normally-scheduled time of the class.  Students who are not able to log in during the normally-scheduled time must communicate and make arrangements with the teacher regarding the attendance “check-in” prior to 2:30 p.m.

For grades 9th to 12th

Each student will provide daily affirmation of the student’s readiness and presence for instruction by responding to the teacher’s “check-in” during the normally-scheduled time of the class.  Students who are not able to log in during the normally-scheduled time must communicate and make arrangements with the teacher regarding the attendance “check-in” prior to 2:30 p.m.

 

 

Check-in’s can be measured in a variety of ways, including, but not limited to:

  • Participation in conference or other individual phone calls
  • Participation in video conferencing with staff or live virtual classroom
  • Participation in interactive tutorial
  • Participation in an online study group
  • Text messaging (including group text)
  • E-mail with question or other student-initiated contact
  • Assignment/portfolio pickups and/or returns
  • Assignment submission
  • Posting in a discussion forum or online academic discussion with time-stamp
  • Completion of online web forms and/or surveys.
  • Requiring a response
  • Pre-class assignments
  • Written reflections

NOTE: “Check-in’s” related to class assignments do not need to be done DURING the “class” time unless that is part of the direction.
