Our attendance policy is based upon the firm belief that students are most successful when they are present in class and in school:

  1. In accordance with Illinois compulsory attendance requirements, it is the District’s policy that students shall attend school on a regular basis. We believe that daily attendance, timeliness to class, and preparedness and participation in class will increase the student’s probability for successful performance and fosters the development of self-discipline and responsibility. It is the intention of the instructor of each course to not only teach the subject matter, but also to encourage the positive attribute of regular attendance, punctuality, and participation.
  2. Students are expected to attend every class. The school has an obligation to inform both students and parents/guardians of the student’s progress and attendance in all classes. Parents/guardians are to follow proper procedures to inform the school when their child is absent and to provide a reason for the absences.
