• FREEDOM HIGH SCHOOL ATTENDANCE PROCEDURES

     

    Students are expected to attend each scheduled class at Freedom. igh SchoolClassroom experiences are meaningful and essential components of the learning process. Meeting class attendance requirements helps instill concepts of self-discipline, exposes the students to group interactions with teachers and fellow students, enables the student to hear and participate in class discussions, and involves the student in educational experiences not available in other circumstances.  Instructional and learning opportunities lost through absence from class may not be retrievable.
