Everest Academy is a ministry of Everest Family Church in Hayden. We offer freedom along with quality resources, information, activities and support to those homeschooling in Alabama. We believe that the parent has the best interests of their children at heart. We believe that the parent is the first and only teacher that a child needs. In keeping with this philosophy, we wish to be a very hands-off church "cover" school and allow the parent to lead and guide their children in the direction and at the pace they feel is best suited to their children. We ask only for what the law requires while offering support along with quality resources to aid families in their efforts.

Keeping Up With Attendance/Grading

Keeping Up With Attendance/Grading

Attendance Record - State law requires that the principal teacher (you) of those enrolled in a church school keep up with attendance and report to Everest every absence of each enrolled child from school for a half day or more during each school day of the year.  Because Everest requires 160 days of learning out of 365 possible days, there should not be any unexcused absences.  In other words, if you are able to achieve a minimum of 160 days between June 1 and May 31, please keep your attendance report at home in your files.  

One question I get a lot is how to keep up with attendance and/or grading.

Here are a few resources:
