The Greater Victoria Board of School Trustees believes that regular school attendance and punctuality is necessary to enable students to develop to their maximum potential as expressed in the District’s Mission Statement.
Principals will ensure the school rules of conduct include clear and consistent expectations for attendance and these expectations are to be communicated on a regular basis to students, parents/guardians and staff.
School attendance guidelines are outlined in the attendant regulations and referenced to the appropriate sections of the School Act.

Section 6 – Duties of Students
Section 94 – Provision of Educational Programs
