Chronic Attendance Update-17.4%

Big picture


Our goal for the year is 19% chronic attendance (37 students) currently we are at 17.4% (34 students), an increase of 3 students from the previous week.

Let's continue our work of reaching out to students who are absent and letting them know all the great things they have missed. Encourage families to bring student before and after appointments.

Shout out to Carranza (80%) and Plummer (78.3%) for having the highest satisfactory attendance.

Shout out to Plummer (8.7%) and Crawford (11.8%) for having the lowest chronic attendance.

Best Practice of the Week - Participation Protocols for Equitable Voice

Participation Protocols for equitable voice:
  • allows all students to participate in sharing their thinking, academic discussion, and checks for understanding.
  • increases engagement and accountability
  • can be the whole group (silent signals, shout out, etc)
  • or can be individual (pulling of sticks, cards or rolling of the dice)
  • allows equitable student voice
