Attendance UPDATE

The realistic goal is to have less than 5% chronically absent, but ultimately 0%. Chronically absent is defined as being out 10% of the days in school. This data impacts our STAR rating. Currently, we are at 12% chronically absent.


For those who are chronically absent, Attendance Officer John Riley may visit your home to inquire about attendance.
