At Halpin we recognize that student achievement can only occur when children come to school. During this school year, our faculty and staff is committed to increase our attendance from 92% to 95%. It is an ambitious goal, and we believe that is achievable with the support of families and the community.
Halpin Attendance Initiative encompasses three main areas:
1. Attendance Data Tracking
A data team weekly reviews patterns of good attendance & chronic absences by grade, classroom and sub-population.2. Rewards Program
Halpin's Attendance Committee designed a school wide program of incentives for students, families,and teachers that is promoted daily in order to increase attendance and keep students motivated.3. Intervention for Students with Chronic Absenteeism
