Chronic Attendance Update-15.7%

Big picture


Our goal for the year is 19% chronic attendance (37 students) currently we are at 17.4% (31students), a decrease of 3 students from the previous week.

GREAT JOB Everyone, let's keep the momentum going.

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 (73.9%) for having the highest satisfactory attendance.

Shout out to Friedman (6.8%) and Crawford (11.1%) for having the lowest chronic attendance.

Shout out to Carranza, Crawford, Hodnett, Novak, and Plummer for having no red students.
