Attendance Procedures

  • Dublin Schools has a commitment to provide a formal quality education to its students.  To achieve this goal, students must consistently be in attendance at school. 

    All students are expected to be in all classes, study halls and homeroom.  Attendance and promptness to class is the responsibility of each student and his/her parents or guardian.  Attending classes and being on time allows students to benefit from the school’s program in addition to developing habits of punctuality, self-discipline, and meeting responsibilities.  Students must attend school regularly if they are to derive benefits from such educationally sound activities such as the following:

    1. Class discussion and group activities 

    2. Dialogue between students and teacher  

    3. Lectures

    4. Quizzes, tests and examination

    5. Videos and guest speakers

    6. Special instruction and individual help

    Teachers have a responsibility to provide classroom instruction, which will be dynamic, productive, and creative.  Without consistent student attendance, it is difficult for teachers to meet these educational goals.

    Continuity in the learning process is seriously disrupted through a student’s excessive absences.  Make-up work cannot be adequately substituted for classroom work.  Students who have good attendance generally achieve higher grades, enjoy school more, and are more employable after leaving high school.  The lack of good attendance causes students to achieve a level below their potential, and these students frequently experience difficulty in school.

    Therefore, to ensure the highest level of student success, Dublin Schools will work cooperatively with parents and students to promote increased student attendance.  This policy will be based on state attendance standards, clear and enforceable guidelines, and positive motivation for good attendance.
