MAS Attendance Policy
Hello Milan Area Schools Families,
Milan Area Schools wants to inform our students and families that we will be implementing a new/updated attendance policy. The policy implementation will begin on August 28, 2023, the first day of the 2023-2024 school.
The policy was developed by the district in conjunction with agencies from Monroe and Washtenaw Counties.
While Milan Area Schools experiences good daily student attendance on average, some of our students do meet the state’s definition of being chronically absent. Some of our students also meet the state’s definition of being truant. Excessive absences affect a student’s ability to be successful in school.
Important information about student attendance is included in the the “Milan Area Schools Attendance Policy”.
The policy includes:
Thank you for taking the time to review this important document. It is imperative that your students attend school regularly.
Most of the details from the State of Michigan have been finalized, and we are excited to announce that Milan Area Schools will be participating in the Michigan School Meals Program. This program will provide free breakfast and lunch to all MAS students 4 years old and older throughout the academic year!
As a household, you are still responsible for completing the Application for Michigan School Meals Program. Students will continue to maintain a benefit status of free, reduced, or paid under the new program. If households do not complete the application process, Milan Area Schools will lose important state funding for educational programs for our students. Our students are entitled to these grant funds that are determined based on completed applications. Parents or guardians can submit confidential applications online by clicking HERE.
