Attendance Procedures for Distance Learning
FAQ’s - Attendance Information for BUSD Students and Parents
Are teachers taking attendance?
Yes. Teachers mark the student “A” Monday through Thursday if they miss live (synchronous) instruction.
How is attendance being collected for online instruction?
Students complete the Google Attendance Form (it is a purple form posted in the student’s Google Classroom) Monday through Friday. Please see the video below to get instructions on how to complete the Google Attendance Form and get credit for attendance for asynchronous (online) learning Monday through Friday.
Please note that some sites use an “E” on Fridays and some leave attendance blank for students who are present online on Fridays. The “F” on Friday indicates an absence.
How late can students submit attendance for the daily asynchronous learning?
11:59pm the day of attendance.
How do I excuse an absence?
It is the same process as during the traditional learning model. Parents have 3 days to clear absences and communicate with school (email, school attendance email, phone, app). Please check your child’s school site website for information on where to send attendance verification emails.
What is BUSD’s expectation for attendance?
Students need consistency and focus now more than ever. Students should attend all live synchronous instruction and check into their Google Attendance Form every afternoon or evening when completing their online work.
What if a student is missing live or online learning?
Our District understands that the key to success and learning is consistent attendance. Students chronically absent will be contacted by school staff to ensure the student is getting the support they need. Compulsory Attendance laws for California are in place, and if students begin to miss more than 10% of the school year, then BUSD has an obligation to support and intervene to help the student improve.
Is attendance taken on Fridays?
Yes, your child will submit their attendance through the Google Attendance Form when completing their online work on Fridays. Please note, if your student has an “F” on Friday, it indicates and absence for that day as they did not fill out their attendance form on Friday.
How can I check my child’s attendance?
All parents have access to the Parent Portal and attendance information is there.
What are the new attendance codes that we will see in the Portal?
D Not engaged in Distance Learning (absence)
E Engaged in Distance Learning (present)
J Not engaged in Asynchronous (online) learning, but did attend synchronous (live instruction).
F Friday not engaged in Distance Learning (absence)
