Chronic Absenteeism Dropped in a Week!
Thank you for your efforts! The number of students on track to be chronically absent dropped from 75 last week to 60. There is still work to be done. Please make sure your Spartans are attending school!
The RI Dept. of Education has released a new data-board that is updated weekly. The data collected ranks each of the 226 schools in RI based on absenteeism rates.
Over the next several weeks please partner with Scituate High School to ensure that your teenager is attending school on a regular basis!
What is Chronic Absenteeism?
Chronic Absenteeism is a measure of how many students miss a defined number of school days for any reason. Rhode Island defines Chronic Absenteeism as the percentage of students who miss 10% or more school days during the year. This calculation only includes students who were enrolled at least 90 days in a given school or district.
Research shows that chronic absenteeism is associated with a number of negative consequences for students, including lower achievement, disengagement from school, course failure, and increased risk of dropping out.
