In traditional brick-and-mortar schools, attendance is usually tracked when a student says “here” after hearing their name during roll call. If the teacher can validate the student’s physical presence, attendance credit is most likely received without additional obligation.
So how is attendance monitored in an online or blended school when a student is not physically present? Simply “showing up” for a virtual course is not enough to earn attendance. Rather, attendance in online and blended schools is determined by various factors that reflect your student’s overall progress and academic development. Read on to learn more about how virtual schools like Connections Academy® track online school attendance and blended school attendance, while also providing scheduling flexibility.
