Truancy & Attendance

A huge part of academic achievement and success is ensuring that scholars are punctual and present throughout the academic school year. NMA’s tardy and attendance policy ensures that teachers and administrators take proper actions to ensure parents are aware of their child’s attendance at school and whether their attendance is affecting their learning opportunities. In the event a scholar’s absences exceed the state mandate, and warrants necessary intervention, NMA is prepared to work with families to ensure a progressive action plan is in place to support scholar’s success.

Punctuality and regular attendance is important and expected. Regular attendance in school is the joint responsibility of the scholar, the school and parents. NMA reserves the right to contact parents at any time regarding a scholar’s attendance. Below is NMA’s Attendance and Truancy Guide.
