The state of Oregon Requirements For Attendance 
 
ELEMENTARY SCHOOL (grades K-5):
Must check in one time per day. Parents may help young elementary students complete their attendance check-in
 
MIDDLE SCHOOL (grades 6-8):
Middle school students must check-in one time for every class they have. Most JC Options middle school students have four classes (math, social studies, science, language arts). That means most middle school students must check-in four times a day, on every school day. Each time you start working on a different subject/class is one way to remember to complete all of the attendance check-ins.
 
HIGH SCHOOL (grades 9-12):
High school students must check-in one time for every class they have. Most JC Options high school students have five classes. That means most high school students must check-in five times a day, on every school day. Each time you start working on a different subject/class is one way to remember to complete all of the attendance check-ins.
 
 
 
JC Options Families,
 
The state of Oregon requires students to check-in for attendance, even students who are working from home. This is a requirement that we must follow. While JC Options may be flexible on many things attendance check-ins is something we have to be strict about.
 
If a student transfers from a neighborhood school to JC Options their attendance history is not erased. Any absences after joining JC Options continue to accrue. JC Options is required by state law to follow the same truancy process that the neighborhood schools follow. 
 
Every school day students must check-in in for attendance. If you need a school calendar please call JC Options and ask for one to be mailed home or look on the district website for the calendar.
 
Please see below for very important information about your student's attendance requirements. Also below are the variety of ways your student may complete attendance check-ins based on the curriculum they are using. When in doubt check-in again. Checking in more than the required number of times is not a problem.

Thank you for your cooperation!
Linda Jackson
