Attendance and Engagement Tracking — Stay Connected with Your School

Even while students learn at home remotely either in Comprehensive Distance Learning or through the K12 Online Program, regular and authentic engagement remains important. We know that regular engagement can be challenging in a remote learning environment. That being said, we care very much that students continue to regularly participate in their classes in whatever schedule or routine your student and family have created this year.

If your student is going to miss a class or activity, it’s important to inform your school office ahead of time when possible. Parents can do this by using ParentVUE or by calling the school office at any time.

The Oregon Department of Education has created attendance tracking systems for school districts during this unique school year, and your participation in reporting any absences helps ensure we stay connected with students. It also ensures students can stay better engaged while learning at home through both Comprehensive Distance Learning and the K12 Online Program.

If you have a question about attendance, please don’t hesitate to contact your school office. Thank you!
