Students’ Attendance

Discusses ways of improving the attendance record of pupils of a high school.

Addresses the problem of attendance at Western Guilford High School, which has a policy of no credit after 4 absent days, and 347 out of 1250 students receiving no credit as a result of the policy. The paper presents several solutions to improve student attendance, and tries to get at the possible roots of the problem, which will be different for each student.
