Absences for School-Sponsored Activities

Absences for School-Sponsored Activities
Posted on 11/16/2018
This is the image for the news article titled Absences for School-Sponsored ActivitiesWhen students are not physically present in a classroom, the teacher marks them absent even if they are out for a school-sponsored activity. Those absences are then coded as being excused by the attendance secretary once confirmation is received through a bus roster, game ticket, or list of attendees at an event.  When an absence of any type is recorded, even for school-sponsored events, you will receive an automated message notifying you of the absence, and you will see an absence in LiveGrades.  Please note, however, that absences for school-sponsored activities do not have a negative effect on students’ attendance records or final exams.
