Participating Remotely

Students can substitute up to 5 absences per semester (a max of 10 per year) with a remote learning day by meeting the remote learning participation benchmarks listed in policy.  This would result in the student being counted as present for the day(s) they participate remotely.

  • To be marked present, work must be submitted within 2 days of absence.
  • Students may not use a remote learning day on a test day.
  • Parent/guardian or student must notify teacher in advance to the start of the instructional day to utilize the participation benchmark rule.
  • Schools will make their best effort to provide instruction given early notice.
  • For security reasons, students who are out of the country may not participate in remote learning.
