Reviewed. Thank you.
I'm proud of the lexile scores improving!
Thanks found our charts increased a bit.
I think that we need to have a brainstorming session to try to find a way to improve tardies. Those numbers are staggering.
Thanks, very useful information.
The number of tardies is outstanding; it's to the point of being unbelievable if I wasn't in the building and seeing it for myself. I definitely believe we need some kind of system in place to decrease these numbers, but I'm not sure what that could be other than increased punishment severity. I have seen first hand that some students prefer silent lunch, which shows that it may be becoming a reward rather than a punishment.
The data is quite astounding. I didn't realize there have been SO many teacher absences. Shocking. I agree with Josh very much. I have a few students who are tardy about 3 times a week, and they really don't care. I wish there was a magic button for student apathy. It's so frustrating especially with EOCs around the corner.
Interesting that there seems to be at least a casual correlation between teacher attendance, discipline and tardiness.
Didn't seem to be that much flu this year.
So happy to see an improvement in our Lexile scores.
Yes! Maybe it is paying off? I wonder what it was in growth compared to last year? I wonder if intervention helped at all?
Josh and Wendy are absolutely right--my students don't even flinch at lunch detention. What can we do to decrease tardies? My seniors are showing a big increase in absences, too...
I noticed that I have several on the list who still need to take the SRI. I'm going to make sure that happens before Spring Break.
There are still a few that haven't taken the SRI, but this is probably the smallest list this year! Thank you all for making it a priority.
I think the recent increased emphasis on literacy is part of the reason for our growth! Thank you, Mrs. Childers, for all of the work you have put into our Wednesday literacy activities!!
Faculty attendance was down a little this month, but we did have two dads take leave so the number may be inflated a little.
USA Test Prep has some great resources to increase rigor.
Student tardies are so frustrating and student misbehaviors and absences definitely increase during the spring. Until the county administration enforces an attendance policy, there won't be any changes in student attendance and parental accountability. I believe that we have had at least two faculty members who have been absent because of new babies and that should account for a number of faculty absences in March. They are certainly entitled to their FMLA time.
Discipline seems to be at an all time high.
Looking forward to spring break which marks the end of EOPAs for CTAE
It was encouraging to see that we are improving the literacy of our students.
I think there needs to be a break in between February and the Middle of April. It may help with absences.
As for lunch detention, I think that most of my students don't want it. However, the few who don't mind or even like it are chronically late. Is there a different consequence that could be given once a student reaches so many lunch detentions?
Great news that our SRI scores are going up. Thank you Mrs. Childers for all your hard work. Those tardies, tho. Maybe instead of punitive, do something positive for the ones that get here consistently on time.
Interesting rise in the number of tardies. If it is to school, I vote take away their parking pass.
I was happy to see SRI improvement and tardie/behavior referrals continue to hold students accountable. Hopefully we can continue significant growth.

Good to see so many of the students I work with with SRI scores that went up!
I've found that my dual enrollment students are often tardy. Not really sure how to hold them accountable from both a HS standpoint and a college one.
I hate to see the tardies being so excessive. I do feel that this longer span of time between winter break and spring break (seven weeks) doesn’t help anyone’s desire to be present or on time, but the consequences for tardiness seem ineffective. I don’t have a solution, and I know we all have our opinion and potential suggestions, but maybe going into next year, there can be some sort of revision to the attendance and tardiness policy.
Is the data pertaining to tardies all periods, or 2-7? I am just curious how much, if any, is directly related to making it to school on time.
Tardies are totaled for periods 1 - 7
thanks for the reminders
Whew! Those tardies...I write kids up all the time for being late and I see a gaggle of them coming into the breakfast line well after the Lockers bell has rang. Not sure what to do to correct that issue as of now, but I always stress to the kids that being there is of the utmost importance.
I agree with other teachers about the tardy situation. I do not have a solution either but it is like the students do not care. Just like they don't care if they just make a 70! Happy to see the Lexile scores increase!
Ready for spring break too!
The amount of students tardy is crazy. I would be interested to see the data broken down by grade level.
It is good to see the SRI scores trending upward. Hopefully, the improved reading ability will push EOC scores upward across the board as well!
As a former middle school teacher I know that students are told that absences in high school could cause you to not get credit for a class. If this were a county policy that was enforced we would see a change in attendance...eventually...I think...maybe
Thankful for all the work Mrs. Childers and the rest of the faculty have put into literacy this year! Great to see SRI scores improve! But, HOLY COW - the increase in tardies!!!
For me the tardies are typically the same students that are persistent issues. Most of my students are on time or just occasionally tardy. It is also good to see the SRI scores going up.
Maybe with the tardies we could start taking the kids parking passes and other things so that we make sure we enforce them getting to school on time. There has to be something to make sure they realize how important it is to show up on time.
It's encouraging to see us making strides with our literacy goals.
Absolutely love literacy goals. WOW! What an increase to ISS from February to March.
I agree with Marco, the same students continue to be tardy to class without caring about the consequence. Thanks for sharing!
Looking forward to getting the tardy situation fixed!
Using the SRI data if helpful in evaluating student progress.
Great to see the growth in lexiles; I know it can seem that the process is not working in the day to day but everyone is doing great work in just "keeping on keeping on"! Good Job!
Look at how much the LEXILES have INCREASED!!!! Nothing like seeing the results of all of your hard work. Intervention and Literacy strategies are definitely making a difference. Keep up the great work!
Tardies--if we only had the answer! We do, however, have some good ideas being shared that we want to look at putting into place for next year. If you are interested in being on a Tardy Team to help troubleshoot and brainstorm, please let me know. We need input and feedback!
