Chronic Absenteeism: Spotlight on La Grande High School

landon braden and lhs student

IMESD’s Regional Chronic Absenteeism Coordinator works with students from La Grande High School on the importance of attendance. These students are enrolled in Mrs. March’s Education 101 course.  There were great discussions about benefits of attending school on a regular basis and possible setbacks to being “Chronically Absent”. “My students appreciated the visit, and they were surprised to learn that it only takes 18 absences for a students to be considered chronically absent.  They were also interested to hear that La Grande HS has a chronic absenteeism rate lower than the state average." - Anne March
