Extended Absences

School policy regarding students who have extended absences during the school year.

  • Calgary Board of Education believes there is a strong positive correlation between attendance and effective education.
  • Section 13(5) of Alberta School Act, excuses students from attending school due to illness or other unavoidable cause, religious holidays, suspension/expulsion, or permission from the Board. This absence will be recorded as an unexcused absence in your child’s school attendance record.
  • It is not the school’s or Calgary Board of Education’s responsibility to provide homework to students who will be away on extended absences.
  • The Alberta Education website includes curriculum information for parents if they wish to ensure that a child continues to learn towards successful completion of their grade:
