1) Get a Better Handle on Attendance Issues
The correlation between attendance, dropout rates, and student achievement has been well documented. We've made it a point to give you an easy, at-a-glance look at absence/tardy information for your whole district, individual schools, teachers, and course sections. By reviewing trends and being proactive about taking action, you can expect to see measurable results right away.
2) Explore Future-Ready Practices
The future of attendance is all positive. Free up your teachers to make the most of limited instructional time and provide a flexible learning environment for your students. Access portals and resource rooms instill a level of accountability for the student-centric school that's simply not possible with traditional processes.
3) Keep Parents in the Loop
Grades aren't the only thing that matters when it comes to parent involvement. By providing your families with visibility into period attendance and tardies, you'll be enlisting an invaluable ally in the quest for student success. Parents can choose their preferred communication method and use Family Access to alert school staff of upcoming expected absences.
