I Rise! I Attend! I Matter! LAUSD's new attendance improvement campaign is perfect for Hillcrest. Why? Because our attendance rate is poor. We want to al of our students and families to know our target rate of 96% attendance means that no Hillcrest scholar would have more than seven (7) absences during the entire school year.
LAUSD's Local District West has identified Hillcrest as an attendance focus school and is providing additional technical support. We have a new Attendance Improvement Program (AIP) Counselor, Ms. Zavala, who is on site 3 days a week to support our Extended TransitionalKindergarten, Transitional Kindergarten and Kindergarten students and families improve attendance at the start of their school tenure.
We also have a Pupil Services and Attendance (PSA) Counselor, Mr. Flores, who works with all grades to make sure that all students meet the proficient (96%) attendance level.
We will be providing fun attendance incentives, offering parent attendance workshops, inviting parents of student with chronic absenteeism to important meetings, continuing our Walk to School Wednesdays attendance promotions, and more!
