Present or absent? With schools closed, some districts stop tracking attendance, while others redefine it
Teacher phone calls. "Daily meaningful interactions." Check-in forms. Morning notes in Google Classroom. Taking "attendance" in America's schools has never been more complicated. With school buildings closed nationwide, what once was a straightforward endeavor has become something of an anything-goes attempt to track whether students are engaged. The stakes are high. Most students are poised to go without months of traditional instruction, and the learning losses could be significant — especially for those who don't engage at all as schools attempt to teach remotely.
