The Minister of Education and Early Childhood Development released a discussion paper on the issue of student attendance. This paper will guide discussion to inform a provincial attendance policy to be in place in the fall. The policy will set consistent expectations around attendance, balanced with flexibility to respect the needs of individual students and the professional judgement of teachers.
A short online survey is available at www.ednet.ns.ca/attendance. Responses will be accepted until July 8. As well, the DOEECD will be holding focus groups with teachers, vice-principals and principals, as well as parents, youth and employers.
The DOEECD also welcomes written submissions.
