JVA Attendance Expectations

Computer MouseAttendance is a major contributor to success in school and a critical component to life-long learning and career preparation. There will be work due in each class each week. Teachers will provide a suggested daily schedule for students to help students manage the work.

We follow Jeffco's truancy policy and Jeffco's district calendar with the exception of early release days.  Click here to go to JVA's calendar page.

    Attendance Flow Chart

Teachers take attendance once a week on Thursday and enter present or absent for the previous five school days. We gauge attendance based on grades and actually turning in work in 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 assignments in the past five 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 assignments in the last five days, then he or she will be marked absent for the past five school days.
