What is Excellent Attendance? The LAUSDs goal is for ALL students to attend at a rate of 96% or higher. We expect all students to be present in school, on-time, every day. Students should miss no more than one week (about 7 days) of school per school year.
Compulsory Full-Time Education E.C All children between the ages 6 and 18 years must attend school full time. All parents, guardians, and students are responsible to comply with this law.
Why does this law exist? Attendance + Grades=Success School attendance is the strongest predictor of High School Graduation. A high school graduate will earn about $300,000 more than a high school dropout over their lifetime. A college graduate will earn about $1,000,000 more than a high school dropout over a lifetime.
What Students can do: Get to school every day on time, in every grade! Make any appointments during school vacations or off time Set a schedule and stick to it! Make sure you go to bed early so that you are rested and ready to learn.
