NPA Family Update
November 6, 2023
Greeting NPA Families
This communication includes information about your student's next assignment sheet and other relevant NPA happenings.
The annual Health Kids Survey is open now. We are asking that ALL parents/guardians/caretakers take a moment to share your feedback on NPA. This is valuable for us and we implement change with the findings to better our program.
Parents/Guardians - Click HERE To complete the survey - THANK YOU!
This week all students are completing assignment sheet #3 and will be receiving assignment sheet #4. Average Daily Attendance (ADA) at an independent study = work completion. Your student should have earned 14 days of attendance. How did your student do this assignment sheet?
ASK your student - Green, Yellow, or Red after their meeting this week.
ADA % for Satisfactory -- 80-100%
ADA % for Unsatisfactory Tiered Re-Engagement - 60-79%
ADA % for Unsatisfactory - immediate evaluation of placement - below 60%
Assignment sheet #4, given this week, has 15 days of ADA. The sample shown below is a Wednesday student. Please ask to see your student's new assignment sheet after the teacher meeting this week.
A reminder that the NPA campus will be closed for November 10 (in observance of Verertans' Day) as well as November 22-24, 2023 (Thanksgiving break).
As usual, NPA parents/guardians/caregivers are welcome at any student meeting. Let us know if you need any assistance.
