Attendance will be taken using the PowerSchool system for all students. Students attending in-person will have their attendance recorded based on previously established diocesan attendance guidelines. Students participating remotely may have different attendance codes to indicate participation or absence while in a remote setting, while those attending in-person would also have Present and Absent categories.
Students participating in remote learning will be expected to leave their camera on at all times while attending live instruction in order to be counted as Present, unless they have received special permission to turn off their camera by the teacher or principal. Requests for this special permission should be made in writing via email.
Considerations for attendance will also be given based on student submission of assignments, and communications from parents to the teacher (e.g. a teacher could mark a student as Present who did not attend the live session, but whose parent sent an email indicating the reason for the absence, and/or the assignment given was submitted on time).
