Chronic Absenteeism: Spotlight on Mac-Hi

 Mac-Hi kids"We recognize the impact attendance has on student performance and graduation. We have rolled out our Strive For 5 attendance initiative to help students focus on improvement, not perfection. Strive for 5 focus on not missing more than 5 school days, excluding school activities. We have presented this campaign locally to our Chamber of Commerce and Kiwanis Club. We are excited to be visiting businesses next week to deliver posters and window decals to start building our community partners in supporting our efforts to focus on attendance.  We have already seen an 8% increase in our attendance over this time last year. The prize wheel has helped generate a lot of student excitement and engagement into these new attendance initiatives." --Vice Principal, McLoughlin High School, Jay Rodighiero
