4 Attendance Iris & Iseila Current (as of 11/13/14): 91.4% What we monitor: daily attendance, grade level attendance, classroom attendance, “watch list” students, adult attendance How we celebrate: daily shout-outs to classes “in the green”, monthly pizza parties for top three classes, awards at assemblies for students with 95% attendance or better and students with most improved attendance, monthly pizza celebrations and gift card drawings for staff with perfect attendance How we intervene: Home visits, work with parent liaison, truancy blitz, transportation assistance, personal connections with students using Americorps workers, weekly principal meetings with social workers, parent liaison, and attendance clerk

5 Current enrollment = 361 (minus the 37 PK students) Of those 361 students, 53 students are GEM. GEM students often have long illnesses or surgeries during the school year. Looking at our At Risk, Chronic, and Severe students (a total of 163), 36 of these students are GEM students. Two dashboards would allow us to hold our entire school to high and attainable goals. 2014-15 95% We strive for 95!
