QPA recommends that students work around one hour per subject per school day*. This ensures that students meet attendance requirements and progress through their courses in a timely manner. However, students may opt to work in specific subject areas if they choose as long as they meet the attendance goals below.
To ensure students meet attendance requirements, QPA recommends the following goals:
It is important to note that students may document attendance on non-school days (weekends or holiday breaks) to make up time missed.
Student attendance is automatically documented when logged into coursework, but students may document their "offline" time by using the Student Information System Attendance System. Some examples of offline attendance can include any of the following items as long as the student is not signed into their coursework:

HB410 requires all Ohio Schools to implement an absence intervention plan for students under 18 that meet one of the following triggers:
An Absence Intervention Plan is used to identify and correct habitual truancy. Once the plan is implemented, students that fail to improve their attendance may be referred to juvenile court for truancy.
Parents and guardians that fail to attend an Absence Intervention Meeting may be referred to the county prosecutor's office.
An Absence Intervention Plan will be implemented with or without the involvement of the student, parent, or guardian.
