The Board of Education believes that the proper performance of a teaching staff member’s professional duties requires the punctual commencement and proper completion of all assigned services.

The Building Principal shall determine whether a teaching staff member’s tardiness or absence is excused or unexcused.

A record of instances of tardiness and absences will be maintained in each teaching staff member’s personnel file in accordance with Board Policy No. 3212.

The Superintendent and/or Principal or designee is authorized to direct properly cautioned teaching staff members who are repeatedly tardy not to report at all on those days when they cannot report on time and to suffer such wage penalties as may be appropriate.
