Students enrolled in St. Vrain Valley Schools are required to attend classes in accordance with the Colorado Compulsory Attendance Law and Article IX, Section 2 of the Colorado constitution.  Per St. Vrain Valley School Board Policy (File JH: Student Absences and Excuses), children under the age of 17 are required to attend school regularly until graduation from high school or the end of the semester in which a student turns 17 years of age.

St. Vrain Online Global Academy provides students with a unique and flexible way to complete course work required for graduation, however students are required to meet expectations of attendance both online and in the physical environment.  Therefore, attendance at St. Vrain Online Global Academy is based upon the following:

  • Students must record a minimum of 22.5 hours/week recorded from Sunday to Saturday in their FLVS Global School powered by Florida Virtual School classes.
  • Students must attend the physical facility daily for 4.5 hours until their first class is completed
  • Students must attend 2.5 hours/per class/per week once the initial class is completed

Students must maintain regular contact via telephone, e-mail, instant message system, or face-to-face meetings with their Florida Virtual School instructor(s) and the St. Vrain Online Global Academy staff.

A student is considered in violation of the SVOGA attendance policy if he/she is:

  • Not passing an online course
  • Does not attend weekly on-site session
  • Logs in less that 22.5 hours per week 

Violation of the attendance policy for a period of 2 weeks will result in the student being placed on an attendance contract and attending the onsite facility daily until he/she is passing his/her online course(s).

Violation of the attendance policy for a period of four consecutive weeks is considered Habitual Truancy.  If absences continue, students will be referred to the District Truancy Officer and may be withdrawn from St. Vrain Online Global Academy.
