Attendance Policy

Be Here

School attendance is important and in order to receive the best education, students need to Be Here!

DoDEA has implemented a system-wide attendance policy for students in DoDEA schools throughout the world. This new policy is consistent with those found in many public schools throughout the United States. School attendance has been identified as a serious issue for children throughout the country and military children are no exception. 

DoDEA's attendance policy provides specific guidance on attendance and identifies support services for students at-risk for not fulfilling the grade or course requirements. 

Regular school attendance correlates directly with success in academic work, improves social interaction with adults and peers and provides opportunities for important communication between teachers and students. Regular attendance also has a cumulative effect of establishing life-long positive traits — responsibility, determination, respect for rules of society -- that are critical for developing career readiness skills, success in college and in life.
