3. Planning  

3.*. Policy consideration: Attendance for students enrolled in completed dual enrollment courses (end of semester/year).  

 

Discussion:

Mr. Kline asked that the SBDM consider what kind of attendance policy might need to be put in place regarding senior students who finish their dual enrollment courses before the end of the school year. 

Mr. Kline noted that OCHS does not record attendance in IC for dual enrollment classes, though we are still responsible for students who are present at school.

The council discussed that it would be reasonable to have a policy that required parents to sign off on what they wanted their student to do, either continue to come to school even though dual credit classes were completed, or allowing them to be excused from physical attendance on campus.  The council asked that the attendance clerk develop a code in IC that would inform faculty members of the students' approved location.

Mr. Kline will develop a policy for consideration by the council.
