Attendance Policy

JVA Attendance Expectations

Computer MouseJeffco Virtual expects students to log into each class each school day and classes are not self-paced.

Attendance is a major contributor to success in school and a critical component to life-long learning and career preparation. There will be work due in each class each week. Teachers will provide a suggested daily schedule for students to help them manage the work.

We follow Jeffco's truancy policy and Jeffco's district calendar with the exception of early release days.

Students must log into each of their JVA courses
every 24 hours Monday - Friday.

If you go 24 hours before logging into a class, your teacher will mark you absent for missing a day. For example, if you login at 9:30am on Monday then you need to log in around 9:30am on Tuesday. Each time a student logs into a course, the 24 hours resets. We strongly suggest students create a schedule so they are logging in for attendance at a consistent time each day during the week.

Students can complete the log into requirements for all classes within 5-10 minutes. Students will be taught how to do this in a required tutorial course called the Intro to JVA during the enrollment process. Families will receive notification about this requirement at the appropriate time.

You log into each of your classes by following these steps:

  • Open a course
  • Go into the Materials section on the left hand side of the screen
  • Open the course to a content page like a reading, assignment, discussion, etc. (This will not look like a list of folders and is ideally where you left off in the course the day before.)
  • Leave the course open to the content page for at least 5 minutes. You do not need to actually submit work to be counted present for classes.

By following these steps, Schoology will mark that you attended the course and teachers will use this to mark you present or absent.

Here's a trick! Open each class into its own internet tab at one time and get attendance taken care of for all classes at once.

Unable to attend school due to an illness?

  • Parents/guardians should call Jeffco Virtual's Attendance Line at 303-982-6770 (option 2) and leave a voicemail notifying the school of their student's absence.
  • The school must be notified of the absence no later than 24 hours following the beginning of the absence. If the school does not receive the notification within this period of time, the school can consider the absence unexcused.

Jeffco Virtual does not send automated calls home when students have unexcused absences. Families can check on their student's attendance at anytime through Family Portal.
