ASU Prep Digital

The Student Attendance function is NOW ready for use under the Parent/Guardian’s account in Maestro.

Instructional Video:

Each week, parents and guardians are required to submit their child’s weekly attendance.

The state-mandated expectation is that full-time students will spend a minimum of 30 hours (or 5 hours per course) each week working on their digital coursework. Attendance for part-time students will relate to the number of courses they are enrolled in (5 hours per course).

We recommend that you submit student attendance starting from the previous Saturday through Friday of each week.

Parents and guardians must enter the minimum of 30 hours in multiple days of the week (these entries should be divided up between Monday through Friday).

The amount of hours spent each day on coursework is still determined by the student’s family, but for example, the 30 hours of attendance could be entered as:

  • a) 6 hours per day, Monday through Friday
  • b) 10 hours per day on Monday, Wednesday and Friday
  • c) 8 hours per day on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and 6 hours on Thursday

As can be seen above, the specific schedule is up to the parent or guardian, but on any given day, the entry cannot exceed 24 hours in one day.
