Excused Absence - College Visits
Gwinnett County’s Board of Education strongly encourages regular attendance for the entire school year. Regular attendance is necessary in order for students to obtain the maximum benefit from the educational opportunities offered. Therefore, students are urged to visit colleges the summer prior to their senior year or on a weekend in order to avoid the loss of valuable class instruction.
College visits are coded as “COL” and count as an excused absence on attendance records. This absence DOES affect perfect attendance because it is as an excused absence.
