Attendance

Plan A Attendance Policy

  • Below, you will find new guidance for Plan A in alignment with our current attendance policy until further notice from NC DPI.

    1. If a student is in Plan A and does not physically attend, the student should be marked absent per Policy 4400. If a student is not physically attending for reasons that would not be considered excused under section C of Policy 4400, then the student should be marked absent as unexcused. 
    2. If a student in Plan A requires quarantining due to a positive diagnosis for COVID-19 or exposure, the student should be marked absent-excused, similar to a student who is absent for any of the reasons in section C of Policy 4400. Any students who are absent for excused reasons per Policy 4400 should be provided remote learning access that is available at the school.
    3. There is an expectation for all teachers to continue providing updates and assignments in the teacher’s LMS. Please refer to this link for more information: 20-21 LMS guidance
    4. During Remote Learning Days, including inclement weather days, students in Plan A who are present should be marked 1R (present off-site) if within three days:
      • a student completes their daily assignments, either online or offline; and/or if a student is present in synchronous instruction.
      • a student has a daily check-in, a two-way communication, with the appropriate teacher(s):
        • In grades PreK-5, homeroom teacher
        • In all other grade levels, each course teacher as scheduled
