Policy 5.5: Attendance was revised at the November 17, 2020 Special School Board Meeting. Distance Learning for Emergency School Closures is included in the policy to adapt to our needs to teach students remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic. Section VIII, paragraph A2: 2. During distance learning, the use of student cameras is required for attendance and instruction. Students will be counted in attendance in the learning environment during their scheduled class time. Teachers should be flexible and consider any extenuating circumstances of individual students who may be unable to turn on a camera. Teachers may consider other evidence of attendance for individual cases.
