Students who are chronically absent is defined as missing more than 10 percent of school days since the start of the school year. This adds up to a significant loss of time that could be spent learning to read or do math. Research has linked chronic absenteeism in kindergarten and 1st grade to difficulty reading in 3rd grade. Parents, help us monitor our students attendance! EVERY STUDENT, EVERY DAY!

SST Student Study Team
The primary purpose of the Student Success Team is to develop an action team plan, called a Student Success Plan, for interventions in the general education program. The Student Success Team is a school site team which includes the school staff, parent/guardian, student (if age appropriate) and other district support personnel. It is a function of general education and uses a systemic problem-solving approach to assist the student who is not progressing at a satisfactory rate or who has other school-related problems, such as attendance, behavior, etc.
