Information for schools regarding attendance, where students from a single year level are instructed to stay home due to teacher industrial action.
Note : This is only applies where the school is open for tuition for all other year levels except the year level(s) asked to stay home.
The Ministry of Education advise that in this case, students in the affected year level should be marked with attendance code 'J - Justified Absence'
It is not acceptable to mark the students as Present.
If the entire school is closed due to strike action, then this is a different case - refer to School Closure page below
