Steele Canyon High School recognizes the relationship between positive student attendance and academic success. Steele Canyon expects students to attend regularly and punctually and encourages parents to actively support this behavior. Truancy and tardiness to school/class may result in a loss of opportunity for maximum time on task, a decreased level of learning, a disruption to others' learning processes and loss of privileges.
