Centralized Attendance Notifications

ABC Unified School District is proud to offer its schools, students and families the ABC Centralized Attendance Notification System. The district's centralized notifications generate attendance problem notifications via the district's Graphics Department. The use of high tech printing, enveloping and addressing technology combined with a link to each school's student attendance records allows for an efficiently run central process. Schools save time and money and parent and students stay consistently informed on a weekly basis. 

The system informs parents of their student’s unexcused absences and tardies thirty minutes or more when arriving at school or class. The system reports in writing (US Mail) on a weekly basis to parents the attendance problems that occur at intervals of 3 absences/tardies, 6 absences/tardies and 12 absences/tardies. Copies of the letters are also sent to the school.

This information assists parents in being proactive when addressing their student’s attendance. Letters 1 and 2 encourages the parent to contact the school to discuss the attendance issues. Letter 3 (after 12 unexcused absences) requires the parent and student to attend a School Attendance Review Team (SART) meeting where attendance interventions are discussed. Thereafter, continued poor attendance may result in the district's Child Welfare and Attendance Department proceeding with legal actions involving the truant student and parents. 

Parents with questions related to their student’s attendance records should contact the school.
