State Requirements

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.

It is as easy as knowing your A B C's and counting to 13 !

Characteristics of successful online learners


Students who can direct their own learning environment, fulfill course requirements and achieve individual academic success.

Independent learner
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.

Computer literate
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.

Time management
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.

Personal commitment
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?

The sheep need a shepherd to tell them everything to do.

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...

The few and the Proud

Every student, teacher, volunteer and administrator is on a continuous probation.

We must be able to handle;e the responsibilities of online learning.

All of the requirements are here to set you up to succeed.

If indeed after evaluation the facts are clear that one can not keep up with the rigorous resolve it takes to be in the SCGLH a transfer will be in effect immediately.

This is to insure a system that works for each individual.

Thank you

Mr. T
