Re: Attendance after school
The core teacher is not there 5 days a week. Nor should they be. They have lives and families and are smart enough to work 40 hours a week instead of 60.....
With ya that they should be graded but they should also have purpose other than, "director can't manage time during class so wastes more time after school when it isn't needed"....
"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?
