Teachers are taking attendance twice every class period, once at the beginning of class and a second time at a random time later in the period. A student should be ready to turn on his camera/microphone and both verbally and visually respond to an attendance roll call. If a student is missing for both check-ins, he will be marked absent by the teacher. If he is missing for one of the check-ins, he will be marked tardy. These marks are reported to the Dean of Student Services, who prepares a report card attendance grade for students. Officially excused absences do not count against a student’s attendance grade.
