Attendance Expectations for CLASS

Student support team was created to communicate and work with students regarding attendance, grades, or other concerns on a regular basis to ensure academic success. NPHS administration meeting every other week to discuss student progress. Attendance data is studied on a daily basis while academic updates are obtained weekly. This work is critical to the overall success of our students in fulfilling their graduation requirements.

The North Platte School District acknowledges the importance of student attendance and has identified improving student attendance as high priority goal. Research has revealed that school attendance matters for doing well in school and life. Improving attendance and reducing chronic absences takes commitment, collaboration and a planned approach to the particular challenges families and schools face yearly.

The goals of the NPPS Attendance Policy are to meet the needs of educational learning and to teach society’s expectations of attendance in other commitments. When a student is absent, it is the responsibility of the parent/guardian (hereafter referred to as “parents”) to notify their teacher before or during each absence. Circumstances such as illness, court dates, school activities, bereavement or maternity leave are acceptable reasons not to be in school. Accumulated absences may result in being dismissed from the program. Any student with 4 unexcused absences for each semester will be examined by the NPHS administration team.

Students will also be referred to the County Attorney if they reach 20 absences in one year.
