It’s been well documented that chronic absence signals that a student is more likely to drop out of high school. But how much more likely?
Researchers at the University of Utah went through five years of the state’s attendance data and came up with an answer: The odds that a student will drop out are 7.4 times greater if he or she is chronically absent in any year starting in eighth grade.
According to the state of Utah’s compulsory attendance laws (53A -11-101.5, Utah Code Ann.), students are required to be in attendance at school unless they are excused due to illness, injury or family emergency. Parents have a legal right to take their child out of school for any reason, but they do not have a legal right to violate the state and district mandatory attendance law.
Any absence (not being in the building) is counted when the student is not in the building. Parents may excuse the absence, but it will be recorded as an absence in our system. It is our protocol and policy to let parents know when their child is not in attendance (absent from the building), so we will be sending out letters to inform you when absences reach 5 days, 7 days, and 9 days. We encourage parents to keep sick kids home, but we do want students and parents to know that we want them here at school learning every day! Attendance is imperative to success in the classroom!
