North Pocono School District Attendance Policy and Procedures

Welcome to the North Pocono School District's attendance site. In an effort to keep the entire North Pocono community on the same page with respect to student attendance, this website was created as a real-time way to communicate rules, policies, procedures, and answers to student/parent questions.

To navigate the site, use the menus along the top of the page (on a tablet or smartphone, the menus are often collapsed into a button with three horizontal lines in the upper left corner).

The North Pocono School District takes student attendance seriously. Beyond the fact that school attendance is compulsory under Pennsylvania law, research has repeatedly shown student attendance to be a determining factor for student success. That success is our most important goal. Frequent absences of students from regular classroom learning experiences disrupt the continuity of the instructional process, and, once lost, cannot be entirely regained. Our attendance policy and procedures are designed to prevent frequent absence when at all possible.
