    Student engagement (attendance) information for families

    Attendance during online learning is very important for your student’s academic success and connections with peers. In accordance with Oregon Department of Education (ODE) guidelines, attendance will be taken on a daily basis for each scheduled class. Daily participation is expected in online face-to-face class sessions.

    Please contact your school main office if your student is not able to participate during a daily face-to-face session.

    If your student is unable to attend the face-to-face session on a given day, here are other ways they can be marked as attending:

    1. Watching a recorded lesson and then completing the work that goes along with it later that same day.
    2. Communicating with the teacher via email, phone call, chat, or text message (two-way). If your student is in grades K-5 and possibly 6-8, this communication will count if it is between parent and teacher.
    3. Posting completed work online.

    For a student to be marked present, they must participate in one of the above ways during the 24 hours (12:01 a.m.-11:59 p.m.) for each scheduled class.

    If grades K-5: If your student is marked absent for 3 or more consecutive days, a staff member will be contacting your family to see how the school can support your student’s attendance.

    If grades 6-8: If your student is marked absent for any single period of a day, you will receive an automated phone call at the end of that day prompting you to check in with your student and/or their teacher. If your student is absent for more than one day, you may be contacted by a staff member to see how the school can support your student’s attendance.

    If grades 9-12: If your student is marked absent for any single period of a day, you will receive an automated phone call the following day, prompting you to check in with your student and/or their teacher. If your student is absent for more than one day, you may be contacted by a staff member to see how the school can support your student’s attendance.
