ATTENDANCE PROCEDURES

 

The education process requires the continuous participation of each student to be effective.  It is the responsibility of all students and parents to ensure good school attendance.  There is a high correlation between successful academic performance and good daily attendance.  The administration and faculty believe that students and parents should strive for perfect attendance and daily punctuality.  Each student shall have a written excuse for every day or portion of the day absent signed by either a physician or parent.  The parent signed notes will be limited to three per semester.  The first semester will end at Christmas, and the second semester will end on the last day of school.  Excuses should be presented to the front office on the day that the student returns to school.  For any day that a student is absent and does not present a written excuse, this day shall be recorded as unexcused.  The Principal shall follow BOARD POLICY to determine whether the absences are excused or unexcused.  Three or more unexcused absences constitute truancy and charges may be filed by the Board of Education.

 

ATTENDANCE PROCEDURES APPROVED BY THE IES SBDM COUNCIL

Irvington Elementary School will implement the Breckinridge County Board of Education policies and strive to create an environment that promotes student success that prepares them for the future.  Responsible and punctual attendance is certainly one of these characteristics.  Moreover, we shall stress quality attendance and productivity in conjunction with this procedure.  Homerooms having the highest attendance percentage for the month will be awarded.  Also, any student who has perfect attendance for any nine weeks grading period will be placed into a drawing for a great prize.  Any student having a perfect attendance record for the entire year will receive an Attendance Certificate and a trophy.  Students having three (3) unexcused tardies will not be eligible for yearly perfect attendance awards.  Three or more unexcused tardies constitute truancy and charges may be filed by the Board of Education.
