In the graphic below, chronic absenteeism is defined as missing 18 days of school in one year. That is equal to two days per month. That may not seem like a lot, but it has a significant impact on a child’s progress in school. When a student is absent, even for one day, he/she has lost an opportunity to learn and must work harder to learn what he/she missed on the day of absence.
After speaking with our leadership team, we have made a goal this year to have an overall daily attendance average of 93%. We are currently just below 90% and our attendance for this week decreased by half a percent from the previous week. Please help us, and your child, by having them attend school every day. If you have any questions regarding school attendance, please reach out.
