Gifted & Talented
Aurora Public Schools offers a wide range of services for all identified gifted and talented and high potential students. For more information, visit the AGATE Website.

Good attendance is of paramount importance to academic performance and overall success of students.  Absences, whether excused or unexcused, are detrimental to the learning process.  Work made up outside of class is not as effective as the actual classroom experience.  Class discussions, lab work, simulations, student-to-student interaction and student-teacher interaction cannot be replicated outside the classroom or at a later time.  Regular attendance develops habits that are essential for success in the working world. 

 

  • Parents or legal guardians should report absences by 10:00 AM on the day of the absence.  The attendance clerk will begin phoning guardians for students whose absences have not been excused beginning at 10:15 am.
  • Absences are EXCUSED for the following reasons: illness, injury, medical or dental appointments, family emergency, court or law enforcement authority, or school-sponsored activities.
  • Absences are UNEXCUSED if the parent/guardian was not aware of the absence, did not call to report the absence, or when the reason for absence did not meet school criteria.

 

In accordance with district policy, the administration may impose penalties which relate directly to classes missed while unexcused.

  • Students with excessive absences (excused or unexcused) may be required to provide medical documentation or report to the Quest clinic for verification of the reason for absences.
  • A student with excessive excused absences may also be considered truant if a reported illness cannot be verified or the reasons for the absences are not approved as excused by the administrator.
  • Teachers may be asked to provide make-up work if a student is absent for more than 2 days of excused absences.
  • Teachers will not be required to accept make-up work from students whose absences are unexcused, which can affect the student’s final grade.
