Re: Attendance after school
"I don't have a ride" is not an excused absence. Everything I do after school has at least a week or more notice to the kid. They can find a ride if they work at it.
Same with tutorials. That core teacher is available 5 days a week before and after school. Your sectional is one day a week. You need to come to practice.
I am more lenient for emergencies, but in general, my rule is "be there."
Consequence? Failing grade. Sectionals are graded. Period.
What are your consequences for a student who misses after school rehearsals/sectionals?
Are they different if the kid is going to tutorials, has transportation issues, or just didn't feel like coming?
