Excused Absences vs. Cleared Absences
***EXCUSING ABSENCES DOES NOT CLEAR THEM
FROM STUDENT ATTENDANCE RECORDS.***
***BOTH EXCUSED ABSENCES AND UNEXCUSED ABSENCES
CONTRIBUTE TO EXCESSIVE ABSENTEEISM.***
Absences that are cleared by attending Saturday School…
- Do not count as absences on individual student attendance records.
- Reduce individual student absence totals.
- Count as days present in school, due to the recovery of academic time.
- Help repair excessive absenteeism, instead of contributing negatively to it.
- Help improve individual student attendance records.
Clearing absences in Saturday School is based on the principle that academic time lost due to absences can be recovered on Saturdays. One four-hour session in Saturday School recovers one full-day absence or 6 absent periods.
