Student Attendance and Engagement Policy

We want our students to reach their full potential. To reach that potential, it’s important that they come to school regularly and on time.

Right now, too many students miss too much time.

More than 25 per cent miss more than 16 days a year. Research shows that poor attendance is linked to lower marks. 

Working with the Council to Improve Classroom Conditions, we’ve developed a new provincewide student attendance and engagement policy.

The policy is intended to help improve student attendance through a balance of supports, incentives and consequences.  

Please take a few minutes to learn more about the policy by visiting our FAQ or reviewing the attendance policy fact sheet.
