Student Attendance Matters Even During Distance Learning

Angels Camp – How much does it matter that your student participates in distance learning? It matters, just as much as when students are on school campuses. The Student Attendance Review Board (SARB) is in full force even during the distance learning model and is focused on supporting families and connecting them with services that will help struggling students get back on a successful track. Established by law, SARB is a multi-disciplinary team with representation from schools, non-profit community organizations, and government agencies. Current SARB members include counselors from our elementary and high school districts, a parent advocate, advocates from The Resource Connection-Calaveras Crisis Center, service professionals from the County Health and Human Services Agency, the District Attorney’s Office, the County Office of Education, and local law enforcement.





Distance learning has two main components to attendance. First, the face to face instructional time with teachers. Second, the completion of classwork. These two components make up daily attendance required by the state of California. Despite the modified learning model, tracking attendance and student performance remains essential because poor attendance can lead to a loss of learning, a student failing their classes, and potentially losing an entire grade level.

The goal of educators is to have students thriving in the class setting, keeping up with course work and making academic progress. Even through the virtual world, daily interaction has inherent benefits that are missed when school is missed. “Teachers and peers may be the first to notice when a student is struggling with their well-being. Social interactions, a predictable schedule, sleep, and exercise are key components to the health of a student, and going to school can support these,” explained school counselor Lori Oliver.

A “Distance Learning Re-Engagement Plan” was created as a guide for families to understand the importance of attendance and as a map for the steps that will be taken when a student does not attend classes. This new tiered system establishes actions that will be taken based on the number of days a student misses. With the 3, 6, 9 model, the school action plan begins with contacting the families, assisting with connectivity and technology, and helping with challenges that are hindering attendance. “This new model presents an opportunity for SARB to reaffirm its function as a support for the success of our students,” stated District Attorney Barbara Yook.

Superintendent of Schools Scott Nanik expressed that, “Schools are providing the needed resources to students to ensure their academic success. It is so important that families communicate with the school about their specific needs.”

Why all the printed convolution? For many years now, they have been able to take your kid away and give you jail time if you do not have your kid at their school every day. Why the sugar coating now? Could it be that most have now woken up to the waste of time in your childs early educational life they are offering?

Avoid this Nazi indoctrinating system and find an alternative. The lock step public school system is corrupt, outdated and paced to the underachievers. If you have a bright student it will hold them back to the pace of the least intelligent.

It is amazing how many families have left the area so their kid’s can attend school. This lockdown has cheated every student in the state of an education, the kids are getting further and further behind, not to mention the families that don’t believe an education is important. Idaho, for one has their kid’s in school, California needs to man up and open up. This state has become a 2nd. Rate, third world country! Open up, give it a try, and be progressive, you claim to be, but don’t have the guts to do it!

    Oh shut up.
    The closures were made to keep the virus from spreading to children and their families, and to keep our hospitals from becoming overloaded with more patients than they could handle.
    There’s nothing political about it.
    But if you’d like your kid to contract covid, go right ahead. Take them to a Trump rally!
    Maybe they’ll bring it home and kill off your ignorant ass.

    Private schools and learning pods are taking the place of the inept and shameful waste of tax dollar public education system.

          The liberal indoctrination starts in elementary school ! I see it every day where I work. Even now with the distance learning. Yes it is political The teachers unions are very powerful and extremely liberal. They're getting paid while helping to destroy our economy and our children's social and emotional health. Remember that they call themselves educators while their liberal counterparts call you uneducated if you did not graduate college. Covid is real and there are risks no doubt, unless you're a protester, rioter, looter, arsonist, or of course, an anarchist.

    And yet, many parents have bought and moved up to the higher route 4 corridor which is experiencing a housing sales boom. Their high tech and bay area parents can work anywhere providing adequate internet access; So, less fannies in seats but more kids here than ever logged into their bay area classrooms. What a strange world and certainly none of that student money coming back to local school districts.

      Just watch, that wont work for long. The companies are already cutting their pay if they move away from the job site. Who would feel good about themselves being paid less than others doing the same job? We are still fighting to have women paid the same as men, so these companies are going backwards in equality.

      The workers will slack without supervision and companies will be able to see where they can tighten belts in this depression.

Wow. Calaveras going to start hauling off your kids because they're not doing an adequate job balancing working parents and online learning? So sorry for all the parents that did not sign up soon enough for home schooling.
