Attendance, Homework, Promotion and Retention: A Manual on Policy Development and Administrative Procedures.
Connecticut State Dept. of Education, Hartford.
This manual was written to assist local school districts in fulfilling the 1984 legislative mandate of the Connecticut General Assembly that requires schools to develop, adopt, and implement written policies concerning homework, attendance, and promotion/retention. The first section offers a brief discussion of the process of policy development, characteristics of good policy, and the relationship between policy and administrative procedures. The next three sections focus on attendance, homework, and promotion and retention policies. Each section offers a short discussion of the topic, a listing of key elements that should be considered for inclusion in board policy or administrative procedures, and illustrative examples of how these elements have been treated by some Connecticut districts. An appendix lists members of the statewide committee that was formed to review policies on attendance, homework, and promotion/retention. (TE)
