Attendance Policies

Attendance at ECHS is based upon work completion. This is very different from attendance in a seat-based classroom where attendance is based upon being present in class.

Students are considered truant if:

  • Appointment with teacher is missed
  • All assigned coursework is not completed by due date
  • Tests are not passed with a minimum of 70%
  • Minimum course requirements not met

Truancy letters are generated by any of the following:

  • Missing classroom appointment
  • Assigned work is not completed or is incomplete
  • Failure to pass tests with a 70% or higher
  • Missing assignment or course deadlines
  • Minimum course requirements not met

Two or more truancy letters may result in placement back to the student's boundary school.

Transportation issues are not an accepted reason for missing an appointment with the teacher. Please have a plan for alternative ways to get to school such as the city bus.

Parents, please contact the teacher before your student’s scheduled appointment time if your student is ill or a family emergency will keep them from keeping their appointment. The teacher will schedule an alternative time to meet. 

Please let the office and your teacher know if you are having difficulties of any kind. We want to help!
