Board Approves Attendance Policy, Seeks Comment on Two Others
Oct. 10, 2019 – The Guilford County Board of Education took action on three policies at its meeting on Thursday, approving one and submitting two more for public comment.
The school board approved policy 4400 – Attendance, which was originally submitted for public comment on Sept. 10. No comments were received. GCS kicked off an attendance campaign, “Be here to get there,” in September to tackle the more than 15 percent of GCS students who are considered chronically absent – that is, missing more than 10 percent of the school year, or about 18 days per year.
