Educators have long known that social and emotional learning (SEL) matters for students in school and life. But how does SEL relate to attendance, behavior, and course performance (the “ABCs”)? Do students with higher SEL tend to have better grades, test scores, and attendance?
Attendance is a strong, leading indicator of student success. Research shows that student attendance—or a lack thereof—can have a marked impact on college, career, and life readiness.
That’s why, at Nye County School District (Nev.), school and district leaders are focused on reducing chronic absenteeism as a key lever to improve the graduation rate. Here are the steps that Nye County administrators took to increase daily attendance by 1.05% and draw an additional 16 students to school each day.
A K-12 early warning system is more than just a technology platform. For an early warning system (EWS) to truly change student outcomes, it’s essential to build human processes and protocols around taking action on the data to support at-risk students.
School leaders and educators at McDevitt Middle School (Waltham, Mass.) know this well. Over the last year and a half, school teams at McDevitt—led by Principal Mike Sabin—have operationalized the use of early warning indicators across the school. From structured EWS meetings to action planning protocols, McDevitt has taken a multi-pronged approach in order to equip educators with the knowledge and tools they need to change outcomes for each and every student.
