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

The attached file summarizes our attendance data as of January 04, 2020.  Included in these data are the following analytics:

  • Attendance Proficiency Rate:  This metric analyzes our attendance data through the lens of the District's LCAP goals.  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's LCAP goal is for 72% of all students to be in attendance 96% of the time.  Our proficiency rate thus far is 59.9%, so our Spartan Attendance Recovery Team is currently working hard to meet this target!
  • 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's LCAP goal is to have no more than 7% of all students be identified as chronically absent.  Our Chronically Absent Rate is 15.0%, so our Spartan Attendance Recovery Team has been meeting with students who need additional support.
  • 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 78%, so we are close to meeting the District goal.  We can do this!
