Attendance

Attendance Policy

The Federal No Child Left Behind Act requires that states, school districts, and schools be held accountable for ensuring that all students meet high academic standards. On time, daily attendance is critical component of this educational process. New Mexico law dictates that:

  • Students between the ages of five (5) and eighteen (18) years of age are mandated to attend public school, private school, home school or a state institution.
  • The Albuquerque Public Schools District reports habitual truants to the Children’s Court Liaison office and to the State of New Mexico.

Albuquerque Public Schools strongly believes that daily school attendance is necessary for students to fully benefit from the instructional program.  Excessive absenteeism, regardless of the reason, will negatively impact student academic achievement.

  • Only a parent or legal guardian shall notify the school each day that the student will be absent. Please leave a message on the school attendance line at 877- 3770 ext. 2 with the student’s first and last name, grade, id number and the reason for being absent.
  • Please refer to the APS Student Behavior Handbook for a list of excusable absences.

Normas sobre la asistencia escolar

La ley federal No Child Left Behind (Que ningún niño se quede rezagado) exige que los estados, distritos escolares y escuelas sean responsables de asegurar que todos los alumnos satisfacen unas normas académicas elevadas. La asistencia diaria y puntual a la escuela es un componente crucial del proceso educativo. Las leyes de Nuevo México exigen que:

  • Los estudiantes entre las edades de cinco (5) y dieciocho (18) años de edad están obligados a asistir a la escuela privada o pública, o a recibir la enseñanza en el hogar o en una institución estatal.
  • El Distrito Escolar de la Escuelas Públicas de Albuquerque informa de las ausencias habituales a la Oficina de enlace con el tribunal de menores y al Estado de Nuevo México.

Las Escuelas Públicas de Albuquerque cree firmemente que la asistencia diaria a la escuela es necesaria para que los alumnos se beneficien plenamente del programa educativo. Un absentismo excesivo, independientemente del motivo, impactará negativamente los logros académicos.

  • Sólo el padre o la madre o un tutor legal notificará a la escuela cada día que el alumno se ausente. Rogamos dejen un mensaje en el teléfono de asistencia escolar al 877- 3770 ext. 2 indicando el nombre y apellido del alumno, el grado, el número de identificación y el motivo de la ausencia.
  • Pueden consultar la lista de ausencias justificadas en el Manual de conducta de los alumnos de APS.

Tardanzas

  • Los estudiantes que lleguen tarde a clase sufrirán las consecuencias.
  • Los alumnos que se ausenten durante más del 50% del periodo de clase se considerarán ausentes.
