CCSD Requirements for Student Absences
Parents, please note: CCSD has changed their way of accepting excuses for absences. All excuse notes sent in by parents must be in writing with the following elements included: parent name, address, excuse reason, date student was absent, parent signature and phone number. Please send this in with your child the day they return to school.
SPES Make-up Work Resource
To ensure continual academic progress, students are expected to make-up work missed due to absence. Due to the nature of instructional planning and pacing, work cannot be provided prior to a student’s absence.
Immediately upon returning to school, students and/or parents must contact teachers concerning arrangements for making up work. It is the student’s responsibility to collect, complete, and turn in assignments. The student will have up to one week, from the date of return, to complete missed work. Work not turned in will be reflected in the student’s grade.
The assignments and tests shall be reasonably equivalent to, but not necessarily identical to, the assignments and tests missed during the absence, as determined by the teacher using best instructional practice.
