Attendance Policy

Colchester Public Schools feels strongly that good attendance is the foundation for student success. For several years, Bacon Academy has focused on improving student attendance rates; research supports the link between positive student attendance and increased levels of student success in school. The State of CT has affirmed that notion with its Guidelines for Excused and Unexcused Absences.

The remainder of our attendance policy about the maximum number of allowed unexcused absences and tardies and attendance failures will remain the same.

Please refer to our entire attendance policy, outlined in the Student Handbook, to answer any questions about excused versus unexcused absences, late to school procedures and many other attendance topics.
