Weekly Attendance Mandatory 2-Way Contacts

Each student is counted as present by participating in two-way contacts with their homeroom teacher each week. BVL weeks begin on a Wednesday and end the following Tuesday .

This can be accomplished by:

  • Responding to teacher-initiated emails

  • A phone conversation

  • A virtual meeting

  • An in-person meeting

If a student does not participate in at least one two-way contact each week, that is considered the same as five days of absences. After the first week of no contact, families will receive a warning. Any future absences will require us to start the truancy process.
