Assistant Superintendent, Director of District Wide Programs
Student attendance is a key component of school services in the Caverna School District. Not only is attendance essential for a student's success, but it is also the basis for aspects of funding at the school level. In addition to the financial costs, truancy negatively influences test scores and is directly correlated to the student dropout rate, resulting in a socioeconomic impact on the community. The district has implemented an effective system of data collection to record attendance and to provide a means to monitor as well as intervene in those instances in which students are deemed truant.
Regardless of whether an absence is excused or unexcused, any time out of school results in lost of educational opportunity. Please make every effort to have your child in attendance while school is in session. When possible, make appointments after the regular school day.
The goal of the district is to have a 95 percent attendance rate.
