Absence Management



The Attendance Program was established in 2004 in order to support the  Superintendent's staff attendance goal. The program accomplishes this by  (a) collecting and analyzing data, and (b) developing strategies and tactics designed to  improve staff attendance, as well as reduce the costs and impact of absenteeism. 

The District's Staff Attendance Goal has two factors: an individual and a collective measure.
  • The District-wide Staff Attendance Goal is for every employee to achieve at least 96% attendance, meaning the employee is at work at least 96% of their scheduled time. (Individual goal)
  • The FY 2016-17 District-wide Staff Attendance Goal for every work location is to ensure that at least 76% of employees at each location meet the 96% attendance goal.                   (Collective goal)
