Present - Attendance

Attendance

Regular attendance is critical. The single greatest cause for failing classes is poor attendance. Students who have a 90% or greater attendance typically earn 20+ credits per quarter while students who have a 70% attendance or less typically earn fewer than 10 credits per quarter and struggle to graduate.  CCHS has an automated system that contacts all phone numbers available to us on the day the students has missed one or more classes. Parents are responsible to call the school office or send a note when the student is absent.  A note should contain the following:

  • The return-to-school date
  • The date of absence/s
  • Parent/guardian signature
  • Reason for the absence
  • A contact phone number

We encourage the parent/guardian to telephone beforehand, if they know that their student will be absent, or on the day of the absence. A phone call made by the legal parent or guardian to the school office will make a written note unnecessary. A phone call or note must be received in order to clear an absence. All absences must be cleared within 3 days. After 3 days of the absence, they become unexcused and cannot be changed. Students that are 18 years of age and older may write their own notes, however, we reserve the right to confirm the absence with a parent and/or agency.

 

Student Attendance Review Board (SARB)

After the 3rd absence, the district will automatically generate an attendance letter. After the 3rd attendance letter, the district initiates the Student Attendance Review Board (SARB) process. The SARB process includes the Woodland District Attorney’s Office.

 

After the tenth day of absence, excused or unexcused, the school may require a doctor’s note to excuse any future absences.

 

Appointments

If a student has an appointment during the day and needs to leave campus, he/she must bring a note to the office, or phone call from parent, prior to the start of the school day. The permit will be issued when the student comes to the office to check out. Attendance is very important for student success in school, CCHS encourages routine medical or dental appointments be made after school hours.

 

Changes in personal information

It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian/education legal rights holder to inform the school of any changes in address or phone numbers. It is critical to have correct information in case of an emergency.
