Pokagon Band Department of Education Tutoring Attendance Policy
If a student is using a Learning Center, the family must adhere to that facility’s attendance policy. If the policy is not followed, payment for tutoring will be discontinued.
If a student is using an Auxiliary Tutor, a parent must contact the tutor at least one hour prior to missing a scheduled appointment to be considered an excused absence. If the family does not contact the tutor at least one hour prior to the scheduled tutoring session, it will be considered an unexcused absence. After three unexcused absences, payment for tutoring will be discontinued.
*The location, times, and frequency for tutoring will be between the Auxiliary Tutor and the family of the student(s).
If you or your child have used tutoring services and would like to share a success story, we would love to hear about it. Feel free to send stories and photos to Kristie.Bussler@pokagonband-nsn.gov.
