Partial Day Attendance and Funding
When your child has a doctor's appointment in the middle of the school day, please bring him/her to school before or after the appointment. Schools receive full funding even if a student attends for part of the day. It is this funding that provides the needed books, supplies, curriculum, and other necessities for your child's education.
Q: IF MY CHILD HAS AN EXCUSED ABSENCE, DOES THE SCHOOL STILL GET FUNDED?
A: No. The school only receives funding when your child is present. (Remember, partial day attendance does NOT count as an all day absence.)
