Statement of Philosophy
The process of education requires continuity of instruction, student’s classroom participation and regular student interaction to foster academic achievement. Therefore, daily attendance and participation in all classes is required. In addition to subject matter, classroom lessons foster social interaction, development of effective communication skills, critical thinking, concept attainment, and skill development. Textbooks or make-up assignments are not an adequate substitute for classroom instruction. Students who do not attend class regularly will be in jeopardy of failing their course because they have missed valuable learning timeand experiences. It is imperative that each student and parent be aware of the importance of regular attendance and understands the consequences of excessive absence.
