Students are expected to attend and be on time for every class, every day, for every semester. Students arriving late are expected to go directly to class.
Fifty percent (50%) of a student’s mark in each class is based on daily attendance, behaviour, preparation and participation.
We ask parents/guardians to notify the school if a student has to be away (523 3300). The CAP Teacher will call home to check on the student absence. If a CAP teacher is unable to reach the parent/guardian the student is referred to our Attendance Team. The Attendance Team will attempt to contact the parent/guardian either by phone or a home visit. Continuous home visit attempts will be made over a period of 20 days. If the Attendance Team is unsuccessful in its attempt to meet with the parent/guardian, and the student has been absent for 20 days, the student will then be withdrawn from registration at Cochrane for the semester.
