Short Term Independent StudyTop of Page
If you know in advance that your student will be absent for more than five consecutive days (due to a reason othar than illness), please contact the Attendance Secretary to apply for Short Term Independent Study (STIS). This must be done at least a week prior to the absences. STIS is an temporary educational alternative to classroom instruction that allows a student to maintain their grades. A student's guardian can apply for STIS when their child is likely to be away from school for no less than 5 days and no more than 15 consecutive days. Once accepted, students are responsible for completing schoolwork. Provided the work is completed, students receive a grade and absences are excused.
Please contact Mrs. James in E-1 or at email@example.com to start the process.
Attendance Review Conference/Student Attendance Review BoardTop of Page
For students who have attendance issues will be referred to our Attendance Review Conference (ARC) located on campus. Students can be referred for 3 unexcused absences on 3 occasions in one school year or who are missing 10% of the school year. Parents will be invited to contact the school and attend; failure to attend will result in a referral to our Student Attendance Review Board (SARB) at our District Office.
