What: Making up one school day of unexcused absence or illness. 


Recover you absences and Tardies (for the 2016 - 2017 School year)...
* 1 attendance recovery DAY = 1 unexcused and/or illness day
* 6 period absences = 1 attendance day recovered
.. What about tardies? 3 tardies = 1 period absence, all the tardies has to come from the same period.

- Friends are invited to join as long as they are IHS students, and will be working ALONG your SIDE.  
- Listen to your own music.   Use electronic Devices wisely
- Make up work, or catch up on school work. 


Why: Recover one day of your attendance? 

Reason 1

One attendance recovery makes up one day of absence for the student.  If a student has more than one unexcused absence or illness day, then they can attend more than one attendance recovery. From now until the end of the school year, this will be offered at least once or twice a month.  


Reason 2

We create a space for students to study.  This should help a student recover their some hours of instruction.  Students are to come prepared with assignments they can work on.  I do provide access to Chromebooks to help them process the information.   If they don't know which assignments to do, I would suggest they look at any missing assignments on Schoolloop and double check with syllabus and teacher.  Each teacher may have different make up work policies.   


Reason 3

Finally, if we're also helping to prevent truancy.  When any student is missing more than 30 minutes of instruction for three or more days, they are considered truant by California Educational Code (http://www.cde.ca.gov/ls/ai/tr/). For consequences you can read there as well.  This also helps the school recover funds loss when student is absent, as the school is partially funded by attendance per school day. 


Any questions or comments?  Email me ChiaoA@esuhsd.org or text 408.982.6076.  This will also be the contact info on Saturday as well.
