Updated Attendance Information - Policy 5.5 Revised

The school board has updated attendance policy 5.5 that now REQUIRES that student cameras are on for attendance and instruction. Newly adopted policy language begins under Section VIII on page 9. The amended language for paragraph A. 2. reads as follows: 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.
