Dear BOBCAT Nation,

As we transition out of trimester one and into trimester two, our campus will initiate a focused effort on student attendance.  This focus is targeting an increase in student daily attendance and a reduction in the number of student tardies, in particular period 1 tardies.

To ensure a successful outcome, the Sage Creek admin team will be providing clear expectations, useful time related information for parents and students, and will be incorporating new software to quickly provide students feedback on their attendance record.

The expectation, and also our motto, is as follows: Be Present. Be On Time. Be Your B.E.S.T.  Students are expected to be on time and in their seat before the bell rings.  The objective is to maximize the amount of instructional time to better prepare students to be successful.

Students and parents will be provided the following information to eliminate tardies; a countdown clock will be placed on Cannon Rd. so that students and parents know how much time remains before the tardy bell rings, a campus map detailing how long it takes to walk from various points on campus will be provided, and campus supervisors will use portable attendance trackers to provide immediate feedback on the number of tardies a student has.

The software that the portable attendance trackers use is called “HERO”.  HERO allows for students’ positive and negative behavior to be tracked.  Our goal is to use the software not only to track the number of tardies a student accumulates, but also use this powerful program to track positive behavior.

CLICK HERE to view a quick video about the HERO software.

Students will be provided further information on Wednesday, December 3, during our Advisory Assembly.  I look forward to working alongside you on focusing on the important life skill of time management.
