Goal

The goal is to highlight the importance of attendance and its roll in academic achievement. To reduce the chronic absenteeism/ tardy rate at Champion Elementary. To work with students identified as being habitually absent or late to school.  

 

What will be done with my students

The “Beary Good Attendance” committee with support of administration, teachers, and staff will monitor attendance data daily. Based on the information gathered our “Bea Present” bear (attendance mascot) will be awarded weekly to the class with the overall best attendance. At the end of the month, those students with perfect attendance will have their picture posted on the “Beary Good Attendance Wall”. They will also receive a “prize pack” of gummy bears, attendance pencil, and an attendance bracelet. The students will also have their name announced on the Champion Channel 4 morning news. At the end of the nine-week grading period, students with perfect attendance will receive a certificate and be recognized at the awards ceremony.
ESE teachers, Mattie Carter and Molly Cabrera, during Walk to Intervention (WTI) time:
1. Will meet in a small group setting with students that have chronic absenteeism and discuss strategies to improve attendance.
2. Provide a series of mini lessons that incorporate various strategies on the importance of school attendance.
3. Students identified as having high absences will be provided a personal calendar to record, visually view, and graph their absences/ tardies monthly.
4. Students will identify, discuss, and problem solve barriers to them coming to school and being on time.
5. Students will work on developing consistent morning routines and time management strategies.
6. Guest speakers (principal, guidance, school social worker) will be brought in to discuss and encourage regular school attendance.
 

 

Benefits to my students

During the 2016-2017 school year Champion Elementary’ percentage of chronically absent students rose from 23.2% to 24.6%. This grant would benefit the school and students by offering incentives to comply with the districts attendance policy. Another benefit would be lowering the number of students with chronic absences and tardies. The incentives include weekly, monthly, and quarterly recognition. This grant would benefit student by helping develop life-long time management and problem-solving skills that can be used beyond the school setting.  

 

Budget Narrative

The budgeted funds will be used to purchase items for the “Beary Good Attendance” display wall and purchase items for student prize packs. The prize pack items purchased will be distributed all eligible students schoolwide. Other budget items include: Certificate/card stock paper for printing certificates, ink for printers, copying and printing student pictures to be displayed on the attendance wall. The purchased alarm clocks, wrist watches, and batteries will be distributed and used to assist students with time management and problem solving.
