eLearning Attendance Policy
Effective 2017-18 school year elearning students will be held to the same attendance requirements as students in a face-to-face environment. Teachers will be required to take attendance of students enrolled in CMS teacher-led classes. Attendance is monitored and documented in Powerschool:
Students who are behind pace in a course without any completion of work in a 24-hour period will be marked absent.
Students on pace and showing strong academic progress (mastery level work) will be considered present.
The absence is documented in Powerschool. Students accumulating 10 or more absences will fail a course. The intervention process for chronic attendance will be implemented at 3 and 5 day absences. Each morning teachers will check Powerschool and document attendance from the previous day.
