Absence policy may be altered

first_imgLANCASTER – The high school district is reviewing its attendance policy because thousands of students have lost academic credit for classes in which they had passing grades but too many unexcused absences. Rather than penalize students academically, Antelope Valley Union High School District administrators are considering penalizing students who repeatedly ditch class by banning them from activities such as school sports and proms, as a way to keep teens in school. “We find students stay in school for social activities. Maybe attendance should be tied to student activities, sports, proms, winter balls,” trustee Al Beattie said. Last spring, nearly 1,700 students at district schools lost credit in one or more classes because they had more than 10 unexcused absences, even if their grades were otherwise passable. Their grade for that class shows up as an “N,” for no credit.

Absences for illness and other times when the student has an excuse do not count toward the 10-absence maximum. The district’s attendance committee will be reconvened to evaluate attendance data and the policy’s effectiveness and then return to the board with recommendations in March. “We are looking at whether to change the current policy from loss of academic credit to something different, where we don’t punish the student academically, to other restrictions, like you can’t go to the prom or play on the football team, as a way to keep students attending on a regular basis,” said Larry Freise, coordinator of attendance and special projects. Beattie said students with absences already over the 10-day limit have no incentive to continue going to class. “If you miss 11 days, no matter how well you did in class, you get no credit for the class. Let’s say, midway through the term, you have missed 11 days for whatever reason, why stay in school?” he said. “We need to increase attendance and find a way to get kids to attend school. It’s not just chair time to occupy and get a grade in class. We are thinking our current policy needs to be revisited,” Beattie added. The current policy has been in effect since 2000. Before that, students lost credit if they were absent 15 days, and that counted all absences, excused and unexcused. The students denied credit because of the attendance policy are crowding summer school and other programs the district has set up for students who are failing their classes and need extra help academically. “We started thinking about how do we remediate these kids, how do we help kids get their credits back,” Freise said. “It’s putting more pressure on supplemental programs, like supplemental instruction, credit retrieval, summer school. It creates more kids who go to a continuation program, or say, You know what, I’ll just go to a charter school.” Karen Maeshiro, (661) 267-5744 karen.maeshiro@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
