Support students with low attendance

Classroom teachers can make supportive problem-solving contact during conferences for any student in their class that has less than a 95% attendance record for the school year, so far. (A good gage is to check to see if a student already has 4+ days of absence or has 4+ late arrivals or early dismissals.) It is important to address the concern of late arrivals or discuss information about chronic illness with families, in person. If you would like help with compiling an attendance report for a specific student or students, please be in touch with me.
