Statement of Overall Objectives
School attendance is both a right and a responsibility. The School District is an active partner with students and parents in the task of ensuring that all students meet or exceed the New York State Learning Standards. Because the School District recognizes that consistent school attendance, academic success and school completion have a positive correlation, the School District has developed, and, if necessary, will revise a Comprehensive Student Attendance Policy to meet the following objectives:
a) To increase school completion for all students;
b) To raise student achievement and close gaps in student performance;
c) To identify attendance patterns in order to design attendance improvement efforts;
d) To know the whereabouts of every student for safety and other reasons;
e) To verify that individual students are complying with education laws relating to compulsory attendance;
f) To determine the District's average daily attendance for State aid purposes.
