GLOBE is driven by these core principles that anchor and guide our community, its work, and to which we aspire as a learning community.
These principles include:
Our educational program structure, school day, and culture are explicitly designed to support the authentic vision and mission of GLOBE. Kindergarten through sixth grade students are placed in low teacher-to-student ratio classes to provide individualized attention, thus enabling teachers to develop deep relationships with each student and family. We provide a vigorous academic program and create an environment for social-emotional growth. We foster leadership and community among students.
statutes and district policies continue to stress the importance of parent/guardian
involvement and responsibility in ensuring their student's educational development. Furthermore, it is the responsibility of parents/guardian
to make sure that the children under their care attend school on a regular
basis. The Colorado Compulsory
Attendance Law was created to make sure that students from the age of six to seventeen
attend school. School District 11 and
GLOBE Charter School believe that mandatory attendance is an essential
component of student achievement and works hard to make sure that attendance is
accurately recorded, monitored and reviewed for every student. The guidelines set forth in this policy apply
to all traditional, charter, alternative and online schools within District 11.
When a student misses any part of a school day, and grounds for an excuse are not provided, a student becomes truant. Students who are "skipping" school regularly, or who are absent from school for reasons that do not meet the statutory criteria above, are considered truant from school. Habitually truant students are those students who miss more than four days of school in a month, or ten days of school in one year. This truancy greatly impacts a student's achievement. Students and parents/guardians who violate this policy can be subject to disciplinary action at the school and through the judicial process.
Please refer to the student handbook if you have any questions.
