Studies show that students who attend school on a daily basis have the best chance of success, regardless of their field of study. Consequently, Glass City Academy holds every student accountable for his or her daily attendance. We address tardiness, unexcused absences, and excessive absenteeism by meeting with students and providing liaison reporting services for the Juvenile Probation Department. Attendance contacts are required of students with excessive absenteeism. Tardiness is closely monitored and habitual patterns of tardiness will result in disciplinary action.

In compliance with O.R.C. 3321.191, it is the legal responsibility of Glass City Academy, through the Attendance Department, to enforce the Ohio State Compulsory Attendance laws. Attendance records for each child, including exact dates of absence and/or truancy, must be kept for all students. Glass City Academy will perform all legal reporting requirements mandated by this policy.

State Assessment Tests

The Glass City Academy is a community school established under Chapter 3314 of the Revised Code.  The school is a public school and students enrolled in and attending the school are required to take proficiency tests and other examinations prescribed by law.  In addition, there may be other requirements for students at the school that are prescribed by law.  Students who have been excused from the compulsory attendance law for the purpose of home education as defined by the Administrative Code shall no longer be excused for that purpose upon their enrollment in a community school.
