Changes to Remote Learning Attendance

Beginning Dec. 2, teachers will take attendance every day for each class and/or period.

Attendance includes instruction and activities that happen online with teachers as well as assigned learning that students do on their own without their teacher.

  • Elementary school students need to participate in at least 51% of their daily virtual class to be considered “present”.
  • Middle and high school students need to participate in at least 51% of each virtual class period to be considered “present”.  

APS understands that there are times when it is not possible for students to have their cameras on for the entire virtual class. However, students should try to have their cameras on the whole time. This helps your child’s teacher know if your child is engaged in their learning and understanding what is being taught.

We understand that your child may not have access to the internet or that your internet may not be strong. If this is usually the case, and you have worked with your school, there is another option for your child to show that they are “present”. 

If your child is not able to attend any online classes for any reason, please contact your school and teacher to discuss options to keep your child on track with their learning.

If your child will be absent from class, please let the school know by entering excuses through ParentVUE or by calling your child’s school.  

You can now use the ParentVUE app on your phone, tablet, device, or computer to check your child’s daily attendance.

Thank you for all that you do to help your child’s learning every day!
