Absences for Distance Learning. For a distance learning environment, a student’s attendance is based on their daily interactions or their time value of the work they have completed for that day as determined by their teacher. All students should interact daily with each scheduled class via Canvas (the district’s learning management system) or video conferencing. Students should log into their classes daily during their scheduled class time to participate in teacher-led synchronous instructional activities. If a student is unable to log into the synchronous distance learning scheduled class, other interactions can represent the student’s engagement for their daily learning and be used to document daily attendance. Attendance can also be monitored by using features in Canvas: last login, discussions, chat, or other daily submissions. In accordance with Education Code, distance learning attendance follows the same rules as on-campus attendance and absences must be cleared within 72 hours.
Nutrition Services Beginning on Friday, September 4, the Kern High School District is providing free meals to all children ages 2 to 18. All comprehensive high schools and Nueva Continuation High School will hold drive-through meal distributions Monday through Friday, from 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm. Each child will receive a grab and go bag consisting of multiple meals. The child must be present to receive a meal.
