Ben Steele Tardy Policy
At Ben Steele, like all other schools in Billings, solid attendance is an expectation for all students, throughout the school year. When students miss class time, even for a short time, they miss valuable instructional time that is difficult to make up. Students who miss a lot of school tend to fall further and further behind their peers, and this can lead to greater problems in the future. Our goal is to work with all students and families to ensure that school attendance is a top priority, and when days have to be missed, we do all that we can to recover that missed teaching/learning time. The link below explains our school's tardy policy, and pertains specifically to students who are in the building every day, but struggle to make it to their scheduled classes, on time. We allow 5 minutes of passing time between each period, and that has proven to be plenty of time for students to get their materials and make it to class, on time. If students are excessively tardy, it is usually because they are not using their passing time wisely. Please let us know if you have any questions about our tardy policy.
