Board Meeting Highlights from March 19, 2024

The School Board held a Community Conversation called Attend Today, Achieve Tomorrow, focused on how staff, students, and families can support consistent school attendance. The Board and community members reviewed current attendance data and strategies at schools around the district. School leaders shared creative incentives such as “no tardy parties” and dress-up days to celebrate attendance achievements. They also discussed outreach to families to collaborate on addressing barriers to attendance.

The Board then heard about attendance challenges and opportunities from NTPS staff and families.

This Community Conversation supports Strategic Plan Goal 2—Responsible, Resilient, Empowered Learners, Outcome b: Increased percentage of regular school attendees.

The Board will hold a work session to discuss the Community Conversation and issue a Board Determination. See more about the Board's Community Conversation series.
