     Attendance Policy Reminder 

     Beginning in the 2017-18 school year, absences will be a part of district and school accountability. It will be based on what research calls chronic absenteeism, which is defined as a student missing 10 percent or more of the days the student is enrolled for any reason — including excused and unexcused absences. The department of education encourages districts and schools to carefully review attendance data throughout the school year to ensure supports are in place to maximize learning time for all students.
