Attendance Policy Information
Sweetwater School District Number One’s Policy Committee recognized attendance concerns existed across the District and with the current attendance policy. The Committee worked over the course of the past couple months looking at policies around the state and revising our current attendance policy as a proposal to the Board of Trustees. There are changes with the amount of excused absences allowed, no longer taking a zero grade for an unexcused absence, and assisting students that participate in none sanctioned sports and travel for their absences not to count against them as long as they meet District eligibility requirements. Attached is a letter sent home to parents and the current attendance policy with the proposed changes embedded within (all proposed changes are in bold, the rest is the original policy). There will be a presentation to help explain and understand the proposed information along with providing opportunity for public feedback on Wednesday July 17, 2019 at 6:00 p.m. at the Central Administration Building during the scheduled Board meeting. Thank you for taking the time to read through all the information and attend the Board meeting.
