Monthly Update on Sylmar Charter High School's Attendance Rate!

The attached file summarizes our attendance data as of December 01, 2018.  Included in these data are the following analytics:

  • Attendance Proficiency Rate:  This metric analyzes our attendance data through the lens of our Performance Meter.  In terms of attendance, in order for a student to be considered proficient, he/she can be absent no more than seven (7) days out of the school year.  This translates to a 96% attendance rate.  Looking at it another way, in order for a student to reach attendance proficiency, he/she can only be absent for one day out of every twenty five instructional days.  The District goal is for 70% of all students to be in attendance 96% of the time.  Our proficiency rate thus far is 70.9%, so we are meeting this goal!
  • Our Chronic Absence Rate:  This is the newest metric, and it forms part of the new California Dashboard.  Students whose attendance rate is 91% or below are considered to be chronically absent.  The District goal is to have no more than 9% of all students be identified as chronically absent.  Our Chronically Absent Rate is 11.3%, so our Spartan Attendance Recovery Team is currently revamping its structure in an effort to decrease this rate.
  • In-Seat Attendance Rate:  Our in-seat attendance rate thus far is 96.4%.
  • Month-to-Month Attendance, Two Year Comparison: Compared to last year, our attendance rates are on the upswing.
  • In-Seat Attendance Rates by Grade Level:  Note that there exist only slight variations within the different grade levels that compose our student population.  This marginal deviation between the different grade levels (σ = 0.6481) reflects our school-wide attendance drive.  
  • Staff Attendance Submission Rate:  Our Submission Rate is 100.0%!  We have not has a single incident of unsubmitted attendance since September 17, 2015.  That is remarkable! You earned that distinction!
  • Staff Attendance Rate:  An analysis of our staff attendance indicates that we are above the District goal. The District's target is to have 80% of our staff present 96% of the time.  As you can see from the attached analytics, we are at 89%, which is nine percentage points above the District goal.  We can do this!
