In order to be an active member of the community, scholars MUST be present in the community–not just mentally, but physically. Attendance matters! We need all hands on deck in order for our community to be productive. So we count attendance as a part of our participation grade. Listed below are our procedures for attendance
- Our ticket distributor takes attendance each day, marking students who are on time, tardy and absent each day.
- Scholars who are on time are given a raffle ticket that they can cash out into ELA coins at the end of the week or submit to the quarter raffle for big prizes.
- Scholars who are tardy for 2 days in a week are given a tardy ticket warning them that they will be receiving a call home and 1 dojo point deduction per tardy.
- Unexcused absences are a loss of 5 dojo points.
