This concludes year one of Greenwich High School’s attendance policy.
I know what you’re saying. ‘Come on, Costello, Greenwich High School must have had an attendance policy before this year.’ Wrong you are.
Despite research, drafts, proposals, pleads, and common sense, no such policy existed prior to the start of the 2011-12 school year. That changed thanks to the persistence of teachers, a supportive administration, and an informed school board.
Like I’ve said plenty of times before, the fact that we did not have one was mind boggling. I still challenge you to find me another school in the state where that’s the case.
It should go without saying that it’s good policy.
