Each Quarter (roughly every 40 days, each student will be given a quarterly review letter/report. Parents will be provided with a copy and a copy will be kept on file.
The review will contain figures (and percentages) for the number of
- Full days missed,
- Part days
- Maths classes missed (Numeracy)
- English classes missed (Literacy)
- All classes missed
- Hours of Teaching and Learning lost due to absences ov various kinds
A prediction will be given, based on those numbers of the likely totals if nothing changes.
The letter will explain the consequences, if any, of reaching those totals.
It is hoped that student and parents will become more aware of these issues, and if the predictions look like being a problem, take action.
All attendance figures are available on VSware and all parents have been given usernames and passwords - if lost, just ask.
Focus on Attendance is a HSCL initiative.
