Absences

Absences
State law requires that all juveniles between 6 years old and 18 years old attend school. The parent must notify the school as soon as possible when their child will be absent from school. Within two days of returning to class, the student should bring a note signed by the parent or guardian explaining the reason for the absence.

Under the state law the school is required to begin a truancy petition process, commonly known as a BECCA process, if a student has a large number of unexcused absences. Under BECCA, if a student has five to seven unexcused absences in one month, or 10 to 12 during a school year, the school may file a petition with the juvenile court asking that the court order the student to attend school. For more information, call your child’s school.

Computers and Technology
Use of Computers and Technology
The Stanwood-Camano School District provides all students with access to networked services as well as to the Internet and some forms of electronic communication. Having access allows students to use online resources purchased by the district to support student learning and free internet sites. But access to the School Districts computer network also is a privilege that comes with responsibilities for its appropriate use. It is important that users understand both the benefits of using the computer and the potential risks.

The School District makes a concerted effort to prevent student access to objectionable material on the Internet. District computers use Internet filtering software that is continually updated and teachers supervise computer use to assure that students are accessing information that is educationally relevant. If you have questions about your child’s use of the Internet while at school, please contact your child’s school. If you believe that your child should not have access to the Internet while at school, you can sign a form that is available at your child’s school.
