Changes to the Attendance Policy

There is a change in CCRSB's participation in the High School Credit Attendance Pilot. The new Provincial School Code of Conduct that came into effect on September 1, 2015 does not permit the removal of a course or program as a consequence for non-attendance or poor attendance at school. This means that the current practice in CCRSB of removing a student from a course for poor attendance is no longer permitted. We realize the timing of this is difficult in that it contradicts information recently shared with you since school started this year. This change in practice in no way means the importance of regular and punctual attendance is less than it was previously. Proper attendance is a key to success at school and we continue to expect students to be at school every day.
