Student Attendance and Performance
Regular attendance is critical in ensuring excellent student performance. Students who do not attend school regularly may fall behind in one or more subjects, and may struggle to complete assignments. The average daily attendance in our district for 5 years is above state averages of 95%. It is reflected in the number of students Ready for the Next Level. 100s have exceeded since the Assessment of Readiness for College and Career aka PARCC standard.
