Millikan High School

ATTENDANCE POLICY & PROCEDURES

Our goal is to provide Millikan High School students with a sound academic foundation that will prepare them for success in their post-secondary years. Regular and punctual attendance is essential for this to occur. Students are expected to have good attendance and to be in class on time unless they have a valid excuse. Parents are encouraged to monitor their child’s attendance on ParentVUE.

If the student was unable to connect to Canvas, internet, device, Zoom Link didn't work, power outage, other technical difficulties or  attended the wrong class or period, student must email the teacher for correction. 

  • Clearing absences – Attendance Corrections Form are due within FIVE DAYS. Attendance will be cleared within 5 days from when the online form was submitted to the attendance office.

    • If the teacher agrees that there was an error, the teacher will submit a correction form to the attendance office. This will allow the attendance clerks to remove the error.

    • If the teacher does not agree, the absence will remain.
