Every day counts! Good attendance boosts academic success and prepares students for future employment. Chesterfield County Public Schools, which expects the best from every student, is implementing a new attendance policy. Students are expected to arrive on time and attend class at least 95 percent of the time. 

The complete attendance policy (section 400) can be found online at chesterfield.k12.va.us and is also printed in the Standards of Student Conduct and Attendance booklet. Here are key points for high school students: 

* A student is expected to attend school at least 173 days during the 183-day school year. For block classes, a student is expected to be in attendance at least 86 days to meet the 95 percent standard. 
* Whenever a student is absent for all or part of a school day, parents must notify the school.
 
* Excused absences are limited to illness, medical or dental appointment, court appearance, death in the family, observance of a religious holiday or extenuating circumstances as determined by the principal. 

* Travel or activity plans that would make a student miss school should be discussed with the principal in advance to see if the absence will be excused or unexcused. 

* A student participating in a school-sponsored field trip or activity will not be marked absent. 

* Students will be able to make up work missed for any absence - excused or unexcused - up to 10 periods of a daily class or five periods of a block-schedule class. 

* It is the student's responsibility to contact the teacher to make up missed work and to turn it in no later than six school days after returning to school. 

* After missing more than 10 periods in a daily class or five periods in a block-schedule class, a student will only be able to make up work for full credit for excused absences. After missing more than 10 periods in a daily class or five periods in a block-schedule class, a student may make up the work from an unexcused absence but will receive a grade no higher than 63. 

* Excessive absences may affect credit for classes. Students with more than 20 absences in a daily class or 10 absences in a block-schedule class will not receive credit for the course unless the student completes tutoring or assignments outside normal school hours as prescribed by the principal or the principal waives this requirement.

The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (No Child Left Behind) is a landmark in education reform designed to improve student achievement and change the culture of America's schools. President George W. Bush describes this law as the "cornerstone of my administration." Clearly, our children are our future, and, as President Bush has expressed, "Too many of our neediest children are being left behind." 

With passage of No Child Left Behind, Congress reauthorized the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA)--the principal federal law affecting education from kindergarten through high school. In amending ESEA, the new law represents a sweeping overhaul of federal efforts to support elementary and secondary education in the United States. It is built on four common-sense pillars: accountability for results; an emphasis on doing what works based on scientific research; expanded parental options; and expanded local control and flexibility.
