GLOBE Charter School Attendance Policy

GLOBE Charter School Attendance Policy

To help maintain GLOBE’s high academic standards our procedures are as follows:
  •  4 absences - letter home
  •  6 absences  - meeting with administration to create an action plan
  •  9 absences - D11 hearing with Student Support and Engagement Office if the Action Plan is not followed
  • 10 + absences - court proceedings
     Illness lasting more than 3 days requires a Doctor’s note to be excused.
    Absences must be excused within 48 hours or they will remain unexcused. All excuses are subject to the administrator’s discretion.
Showing up for school has a huge impact on a student’s academic success starting in Kindergarten and continuing through High School.
 Students who are absent (excused and unexcused will NOT be allowed to participate in ANY extracurricular activities (including sports as stated in the Athletic Code of Conduct, Field Trips, and Winter Performance) on the day they are absent.
We realize some absences are unavoidable due to health problems or other circumstances. We also know that when students miss too much school— regardless of the reason – it can cause them to fall behind academically.  Your child is less likely to succeed if he or she is chronically absent, such as missing 4 days in a quarter (excused or unexcused).  Truancy (multiple UNEXCUSED absences) is considered habitual when a student misses 4 days in a 30 day period or 10 days in a school year. (C.R.S.22-33-104)(District 11’s Board Policy JH and GLOBE’s Student Hand Book)
Absences WILL NOT be excused for the following types of reasons:
Family visiting from out of town
Going camping/on vacation
It's their birthday
Watching their siblings
The parent is sick
GLOBE Charter School has approved the Tardy Policy as follows: coming in at 8:00am or after and leaving at 2:30 pm or before will constitute a 1/2 day absence as this is 10% of that marking period.
 Research shows:    
  • Children chronically absent in Kindergarten and 1st grade are much less likely to read at grade level by the end of 3rd grade.
  • By 6th grade, chronic absences is a proven early warning sign for students at risk for dropping out of school.
  • By 9th grade good attendance can predict graduation rates even better than 8th grade test scores.
