 LBSA ATTENDANCE POLICY

LBSA ATTENDANCE POLICY

2017-2018

 

In an effort to provide the community with a safe and productive learning environment, Long Beach School for Adults has established the following guidelines for attendance. This policy will be reviewed and updated annually by LBSA leadership. Students are expected to familiarize themselves and adhere to the LBSA Attendance Policy. Students who choose to violate the attendance policy standards may be subject to dismissal from LBSA for a period up to one semester.

 

All students are required at all times to have a photo ID in their possession while attending LBSA. The photo ID may be a government issued ID such as a driver’s license, California ID, or LBSA ID.

 

ATTENDANCE

Students attending LBSA expect an environment that is safe, respectful, clean, and free from disturbances. In general, any behavior that inhibits the learning process at LBSA, such as excessive tardiness and absenteeism, disrupts learning and will be subject a student to dismissal. It is important that students attend class regularly to be successful in academic advancement and to accomplish their learning goals. Attendance is very important. It is LBSA’s expectation that all students will attend 80% or higher of all class sessions. LBUSD requires a specific number of students to keep a class open. These classes are financed by the State of California. Classes not meeting or sustaining the minimum enrollment may be cancelled. Therefore students have an obligation to each other to attend regularly.

Policies are available on the LBSA website at https://lbsa-lbusd-ca.schoolloop.com/.

 

After full completion of the registration process, students will be offered placement in a program of study or on the Waiting List if the course is full. Students will have the option to accept or deny the placement offer or otherwise opt out of LBSA program options.

 

  • Waiting List applicants will be contacted by phone or email if a course placement becomes available. The applicant must respond within 48 hours to claim the course placement or LBSA staff will extend the placement to the next applicant on the Waiting List and the applicant will be removed from the Waiting List.

     

  • If space does not become available in the applicant’s program during the first semester, the applicant will receive priority registration for the following semester. Depending on space availability, applicants will be contacted in order off the Waiting List.

    Example: If there are 50 students on the Waiting List, and 10 spots become available the following semester, then the first 10 students on the Waiting List will be called and given priority placement.

     

  • Applicants are required to respond to phone or email communication within 48 hours in order to hold the priority registration position or the applicant will be removed from the list.
