At Sylmar Charter High School, attendance matters! We are learners today, so that we can be leaders tomorrow! We expect all students to be present at school at least 96% of the time, which translates to no more than seven absences for the entire school year! We understand that there may be times when students will need to be absent from school. Please read our attendance policy below for more information on our attendance systems.
All Class of 2018 seniors, as a condition for participating in Senior Activities and the Graduation Ceremony, must have a record of good school attendance during their senior year. Good school attendance will be determined by the guidelines established in our Senior Attendance Incentive Program and will affect participation in the ceremony and senior activities. The Senior Attendance Incentive Program begins on the first day of school, August 15, 2017, or the first day the student enrolled into our school. All absences, both excused and unexcused, from that day forward until the end of the school year will be counted for the Senior Attendance Incentive Plan. Please click on the link for the details!
