    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT REOPENING

    As things are changing daily, here is a document that might help answer some of your questions about Covid-19 and our school reopening. Check back as this document can change.  Click HERE

    ChroNIC ABSENTEEISM

    Research shows that reducing chronic absenteeism is critical to improving student achievement. Chronic absenteeism is defined as missing 10 percent, or more, of school days for any reason, including excused, unexcused, or disciplinary absences. Students who are absent due to school sponsored activities are not considered absent for the purposes of this calculation.  

    If a student has missed more than 7 days in a period, they are in jeopardy of not receiving credit for the semester for that period. 

    ATTENDANCE:

    GWHS will be monitoring the reason(s) students are absent from school.  What does this mean to you and your student(s)? It means that parents need to be aware as to why their student(s) are missing school.  Student/Parent ATTENDANCE  APPEALS will not be approved if a student missed more than 10 percent of class without a truly legitimate reason for being absent.  If students are missing school due to avoidable reasons, they will be in jeopardy of not earning credit, repeating classes, and ultimately affecting their graduation status.  Please review Board Policy 504 and AR 504 to review which absences are avoidable and unavoidable.
