At Uplift, we believe that every school day is critical. In Order to set clear expectations for scholars and signal instruction time is paramount, we expect all scholars to be present each and every day of school, beginning the first day of school. Attendance is taken each period of the school day and is recorded for state reporting each day at 10:00 a.m. It is critical that scholars be present because our school funding is based on daily attendance numbers. Scholars should make every effort to be present daily AND timely.
