Attendance Policy

JVA AttendanceREMOTE LEARNING AND WORK CONTINUES 
through the rest of the 2019-20 school year.

Jeffco Public Schools emailed this message to our community announcing school buildings will be closed for the remainder of the school year.


With that in place, we continue to... believe that attendance is more than just logging in.  Therefore, we gauge attendance based on grades and actually turning in work in classes.  We believe that assessing attendance based on actual learning and progress is an authentic measure that teaches students the value of making meaningful contributions in their classes.


» Online Attendance:

  • All students are required to demonstrate weekly attendance in all classes by submitting at least two completed assignments in the past 5 days or has a C or higher in the class.  Teachers take attendance once a week on Thursdays and enter present or absent for the previous five school days.  See expectations below.


ATTENDANCE EXPECTATIONS

Student attendance is determined as follows (see Attendance Flow Chart graphic below):

» If the student has a C or higher in the class on Thursday, he or she will be marked present for the past five school days.
OR
» If the student has less than a C in the class on Thursday, but has turned in at least two completed assignments in the past five school days, then he or she will be marked present for the past five school days.
OR
» If the student has less than a C AND has not submitted at least two completed assignments in the past five school days, then he or she will be marked absent for the past five school days.
The attendance period is from 12 am Thursday until 11:59 pm Wednesday. 

In addition to the attendance expectations listed above, students are also expected to:

  • Commit an average of 5-7 hours a week per course
  • Review updates, grades and due dates in each class daily
  • Read and respond to all calls, texts, emails and Schoology messages daily - you'll receive communication from teachers, community liaisons, counselors and the school regularly
  • Complete coursework (lessons, assignments, etc.) regularly during a time of their choice - courses are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
  • Abide by all attendance policies and procedures



Parents should call in Excused Absences to JVA’s Attendance Line at 303-982-6770, option 2.  The school must be notified of the absence no later than 24 hours following the beginning of the absence.  There shall be two days allowed for makeup work for each day of excused absence. Makeup work shall be allowed following an unexcused absence with the goal of providing the student an opportunity to keep up with the class and as an incentive to attend school. 

Do you know you're going to be absent ahead of time?  Complete the Pre-Arranged Absence Form.
