Addressing Online Learning and Truancy
Genesee County Attendance Task Force
Students enrolled in an online learning program will be held accountable for expectations of MCL 712A.2(a)(4) and requirements of the program.
Tracking student attendance in a district sponsored online program may differ from traditional attendance tracking and may vary student to student. The following attendance equivalents may be used by the district to measure student participation. Attendance equivalents may include but are not limited to:
- Email and/or phone conversations between the student and program mentor or teacher
- Completed work submitted through Learning Management System (LMS)* or other electronic means
- Lab time spent at on onsite educational facility
- Home visit meetings
- Evidence of measurable progress toward educational goals and graduation
The key to tracking student attendance in an online program is primarily driven by student progress in the program and not by the number of times a student logs in.
If the student is not engaging in the on-line program, it is the responsibility of the school to take the appropriate intervention measures.
Learning Management System (LMS) may include but is not limited to programs like Blackboard, Moodle, Osiris and Filemaker.
You are YOU ?
Characteristics of successful online learners
Students who can direct their own learning environment, fulfill course requirements and achieve individual academic success.
The online environment enables students to learn at their own pace, whether it’s traditional, extended or accelerated, relieving the stress of feeling rushed or pressured and providing enjoyment in the learning process.
Although it’s not necessary to have advanced computer skills, students should possess a working knowledge of electronic email, the Internet and basic keyboarding skills.
Students must be able to organize and plan their own best “time to learn.” There is no one best time for everyone, but the key to learning is to commit the time to learn.
Effective writing skills
Students must use electronic email to communicate with their peers as well as their instructors. The ability to write clearly in order to communicate ideas and assignments is very important to student success as well as a means to inform instructors of any concerns or problems.
Since there are no bells that begin and end classes, students must have a strong desire to learn and achieve knowledge and skills via online courses. Making a commitment to learn in this manner is a very personal decision and requires a strong commitment to participate in order to achieve academic success.

Are you a Sheep or an Eagle?
An eagle learns to fly and is on their own.
One is not better than another, it is the freedom that is different.
In your education do you need the shepherd or can you fly and do this on your own?
or perhaps a little of each...
