About School Report Cards

Just as students’ report cards provide a snapshot of their school performance, the Oklahoma School Report Cards show how public schools across Oklahoma are serving students in a variety of areas. The dashboard available here is similar to the dashboard of a car displaying key information. Users can click through to learn more. 

Oklahoma’s school report cards are measured across multiple indicators, including academic achievement, academic growth, chronic absenteeism, progress in English language proficiency assessments, postsecondary opportunities, and graduation. Measured at different points, indicators work together to provide a snapshot of school performance. Each of these indicators receives a specific point value that translates to a letter grade.

At the core of the Oklahoma School Report Cards is the belief that all students can grow and all schools can improve. While no student report card tells the full story of a child, no school report card tells the full story of a school. Education is far more than a single score or letter grade, but it is important that families and communities can see both strengths and areas that need support and improvement.

In addition to accountability-specific indicators, contextual information including per-pupil expenditures, educator qualifications, NAEP, and CRDC data are also displayed. Doing so allows users to understand a school’s successes and challenges from several perspectives.

Attendance Policy

As a public charter school, consistent attendance is expected for all students. For the  purposes of attendance, instructional activities are defined as:

  • Completion of course assignments that are used to record a grade for a student  that is factored into the student’s grade for the term in which the assignment is completed
  • Instructional meetings with a teacher
  • Testing
  • School-sanctioned field trips
  • Orientation

For the purposes of attendance, on pace for course completion is completing weekly  course work as assigned, which must be done while logged into the student account, in order to have successfully completed the course by the end of the grading period.

1. For the purposes of attendance, a student attending OVCA shall be considered in attendance for a quarter if the student:
a. Completes instructional activities on no less than ninety percent (90%)  of the days within the quarter;
b. Is on pace for on-time completion of the course as defined by the board  of education of OVCA; or
c. Completes no less than seventy-two instructional activities within the  quarter of the academic year.

2. For a student who does not meet any of the criteria set forth in paragraph 1 of  this policy, the amount of attendance recorded shall be the greater of:
a. The number of school days during which the student completed the  instructional activities during the quarter
b. The number of school days proportional to the percentage of the course  that has been completed; or
c. The number of school days proportional to the percentage of the  required minimum number of completed instructional activities during  the quarter.

3. To the extent a student has experienced a significant medical condition causing 
chronic absenteeism as defined by OVCA’s policy or state/federal law, the  student’s attendance shall be adjusted on a proportional basis without  consideration of the days that the student was experiencing a significant  medical condition; or other type of chronic absenteeism that is an excused 
absence. 

For students attending OVCA for less than the full quarter, the attendance shall be  determined based on a proportional amount of the required attendance policy  provisions set forth herein based upon the date of enrollment of the student. For  students enrolled in less than a full-time OVCA course load, including but not limited to part-time seniors, concurrently enrolled students, and students enrolled in career  tech, the attendance shall be determined based on a proportional amount of the  required attendance policy provisions set forth herein based upon the number of OVCA courses in which the student is enrolled. 

ILLNESS/EXTENDED INABILITY TO PARTICIPATE/EXCUSED ABSENCES

If an unexpected situation should arise and there is an extended leave of three days or more needed from courses, students must follow these steps:

  • Determine if internet access is available (through libraries, etc.);
  • Contact teachers and Community Family Advisor to explain the situation;
  • Discuss class alternatives with the teacher;

OVCA excuses student absences from school due to a physical or mental condition that makes instruction inexpedient or impracticable for more than three school days. To be eligible for the excused absence policy:

  • Provide a doctor’s note from your physician for any illness that requires you to miss school for more than three days. Doctor’s notes should have specific dates of absence, including a date the student can resume schooling full-time.
  • If a doctor’s note is not provided before the 10th consecutive school day of no-login, the student will be withdrawn.
  • Contact school staff to inform of religious observances which are preventing daily schooling
  • Absence as related to deployment activities
  • A student whose parent or legal guardian is an active duty member of the uniformed services, as defined by the compact, and has been called to duty for, is on leave from, or immediately returned from deployment to a combat zone or combat support posting, shall be granted additional excused absences at the discretion of the local education agency superintendent to visit with his or her parent or legal guardian relative to such leave or deployment of the parent or guardian.

TRUANCY/EXCESSIVE ABSENTEEISM

Students are expected to complete all weekly assignments by Sunday at midnight. Assignments are monitored daily to ensure appropriate and ongoing engagement. Students that do not login for multiple days will be contacted by school staff. If a student is not in attendance for an extended period of time and has not submitted proper documentation for an excused absence, OVCA will take necessary action to ensure the well-being of our students. This may include contacting the appropriate authorities or reporting the student as truant.

In order to ensure the safety and academic progress of all students, Oklahoma Virtual Charter Academy monitors participation on a daily basis. Students that do not engage in assignments on a consistent basis may be referred to a state authority, may be considered truant, and may face withdrawal from OVCA. A petition for truancy may be filed in the family’s district court of residence. The truancy case may remain open until the student re-engages in OVCA; or, the OVCA registrar receives either a confirmation of enrollment from another public school district, or the parent completes the Intent to Homeschool form. A student who is reported for truancy two (2) times in the same school year shall be withdrawn and prohibited from enrolling in the same virtual charter school for the remainder of the school year. The resident school district will be notified of the withdrawal.

VACATION POLICY

Since schoolwork can be completed anywhere, students who travel for vacation or other family circumstances are encouraged to maintain a regular schooling schedule during their travels. If the travel schedule prohibits regular schooling, students may request an alternate schedule or special accommodations for extended travel from their teachers. If a student has consistently not met the attendance requirements, school staff should carefully evaluate the family’s request for flexibility. Assignments due during a family-scheduled vacation must be completed prior to the vacation, so it is the student’s responsibility to contact his / her teachers prior to this absence. There are no exceptions to this policy. Assignments that are completed late due to a family- scheduled vacation during school are subject to the late work policy. Alternate schedules will not be approved during the standardized testing windows or during high school lock dates at the end of each quarter.

WITHDRAWALS

If a parent chooses to withdraw from OVCA he/she should contact their CFA to begin the withdrawal process. The Community Family Advisor will discuss with family the reason for withdrawal and future schooling options for student. OVCA should be informed of the name and address of new school that the student will enroll with or the parent should sign an Intent to Homeschool Form. Once the withdrawal has been confirmed with the parent, the CFA will submit the completed withdrawal form including final grades to the Registrar for processing. Due to compulsory attendance laws, the student must immediately enroll in another school or complete the Intent to Homeschool form.

Students that do not complete adequate work in a timely manner or engage in two- way communication with OVCA for an extended period of time may be considered by OVCA to be withdrawn as no longer intending to be enrolled at OVCA. OVCA will determine on an individual basis, based on a totality of the circumstances, whether a student will be withdrawn. OVCA staff will work to contact the student until the student re-engages in OVCA; or, the OVCA registrar receives either a confirmation of enrollment from another public school district, or the parent completes the Intent to Homeschool form.

Approximately one week after the withdrawal, you should receive a reclamation package from K12® with directions and return shipping labels.
