Attendance Policy

JVA Attendance Expectations
On Campus Face-to-Face Attendance:

  • TAG students are required to be on campus every Tuesday from 9am-1:30 pm.
  • Full-time middle school students are required to be on campus every Wednesday from 9am-2pm.
  • High school students have the option to come to campus every Thursday from 9am-1:30pm. 

Online Attendance:

All students are required to demonstrate regular attendance in all classes.  Teachers take attendance once a week on Thursday and enter present or absent for the previous five school days.  

JVA believes that attendance is more than just logging in so therefore we gauge attendance based on grades and actually turning in work in classes.  We believe that assessing attendance based on actual learning and progress is an authentic measure that teaches students the value of making meaningful contributions in their classes.

Student attendance is determined as follows:

  • If the student has a C in the class on Thursday, he or she will be marked present for the past five school days.
  • If the student has less than a C in the class on Thursday, but has turned in at least two completed assignments in the past five school days, then he or she will be marked present for the past five school days.
  • If the student has less than a C AND has not submitted at least two completed assignments in the last five school days, then he or she will be marked absent for the past five school days.


In addition to the attendance expectations listed above, students are also expected to:

  • Commit 5-7 hours a week, on average, per course.
  • Read updates and check the Grades and Due Dates on a daily basis.
  • Check email and Schoology messages and respond to any communication from teachers, community liaisons, counselors or school on a daily basis.
  • Work on course assignments during a time of their choice. Courses are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
  • Abide by all attendance policies and procedures.


Parents should call in Excused Absences to JVA’s Attendance Line at 303-982-6770.  The school must be notified of the absence no later than 24 hours following the beginning of the absence.
