- Ask feeder schools for their reactive failures (i.e., the outgoing cohort of students who need incoming help to be successful).
- Take notice of the incoming cohort and their adaptability in assimilating to their new environment.
If any are struggling with tardiness or absences in their first year on campus, that is your warning sign of attendance behavior that’s likely to worsen.
From Student Attendance Warning Signs to Prevention Policies
Many of the educators SchoolMint works with have successfully turned these warning signs into prevention policies. They use attendance-related behavior patterns, including excessive tardiness, to identify students who are likely to seriously struggle with absenteeism and, eventually, academics.
For behavior analysis and tardy-tracking capabilities, they’re using tools like SchoolMint Hero district-wide or school-wide. Hero allows educators to see the students with partial-day absences, tardy-to-school behavior, and tardy-to-class behavior.
Armed with this attendance data, educators can:
- Gain a powerful picture of which students are at a high risk of expressing serious attendance issues or becoming chronically absent.
- Apply targeted interventions and tactics to figure out why the students are missing school — and figure out how they can get those students to return.
