ABSENT: The latest episode of the SMWay Podcast
For some time, South Milwaukee has had an attendance problem, and over the last two years the District has worked to improve those rates – after all, you can’t improve reading or math skills, prepare for high school or pass a class to get credits to graduate if you’re not in school learning. School is compulsory for students ages 6 to 18 in Wisconsin. That means unless a student is homeschooled and parents are running it in accordance with applicable laws, children are required to attend a school - private or public. Public schools, then are also required to keep track of attendance, and to the best of their abilities, account for the whereabouts of every child enrolled in the school district, every day. Today we'll hear about some of those efforts and how they're paying off so far this year.
