ATT has high attendance expectations to prepare you for the adult world of work or post-secondary education when attendance is usually expected to be 80%. Also, you need the class time to learn new information, practice new skills, and build supportive relationships with teachers.

You are expected to:

  • Attend school regularly and be on time for every class. State law requires daily attendance for youth between the ages of 5 and 18, or until high school graduation.
  • Maintain 80% attendance in all classes. ATT is a mastery learning school. However, to successfully earn your credits and master the material in a timely way, you must be in class at least 80% of the time.
  • Notify the Front Office (765-5517) by 9:00 a.m. if you will be absent. Call in each day that you will be absent. To excuse an absence, provide a written note. In case of an emergency, call in with an explanation as soon as possible, and bring verification (written or otherwise) when you return to ATT.
  • As needed, the Social Worker or other administrator will be available for crisis management. Absences may be excused for things like: doctor’s appointments; appointments with probation officer, counselor or case manager; diagnostic testing; illness; religious commitments; family emergencies; arrest or detention; or a death in the family. In all cases, you must bring in written documentation indicating where you were and who you were meeting with.
  • If you arrive late, sign in and go directly to class. Enter quietly and respectfully.
