Tracking attendance is a simple activity to help manage participation in classes. Attendance sheets help teachers track student presence and contribution, as well as the absence or tardiness, so that they can resolve any problems efficiently.
Attendance sheets give teachers a quick snapshot on how many days their learners are away from school. Many schools even penalize children, grade-wise, for unexcused absences. This is why it’s so important to have a printable attendance sheet on hand and keep accurate records. The good news is that the majority of absences for middle school and elementary school children will be considered “excused absences”. Very few young children are purposefully truant; however, a problem at home could be.
Most absences are considered “excused absences” are when the parent calls in with a reason that a child must stay home – usually due to the child’s illness, or sometimes even tragic circumstances within the family such as an illness or accident.
Your attendance sheets will help you identify patterns of absences for your students. If you have a student who is chronically absent, it’s time to speak with the parents to discover what it is that is keeping children away from school. If an absence is unavoidable, you can at least speak with the parents and let them know what days the student should expect to take tests or assessments. Many children who are sick still want to participate in schoolwork, and will happily complete their homework (and day work) assignments under their parents’ guidance.
